End of our days

Sorry I haven't been able to write in awhile -- the excitement of my first week of college was just too much. Now to tell what actually happened...
The first weekend was full of parties and new people. Now that things have kind of quieted down and classes have started, I'm kind of feeling a little lonely. I wanna go out again! Good thing today's Friday -- I'll get the chance. Tonight I meet with the Daily Orange to find out my beat for the feature's section. I'm so excited. I've wanted to write for this paper for the longest time.
There was a little mess with my schedule in the beginning, because I tested out of the German class I was originally signed up for. Now I'm in German 300/400: Romanticism and Zen. The main premise of this class, which could very well be my favorite, is the similarities between German Romanticism and Eastern Zen practices -- and of course all our dialoge takes place in German. Great class.
I've kind of started a little duo with Bart, a great guy from Day Hall, up on the hill. I still haven't been able to count all the stairs you have to go up to get there. It's probably worse than if you were to climb the stairs in Lawrinson to the 15th floor! Yesterday I popped over to Bart's to watch Wayne's World for the first time. Before that, we'd jammed on guitar to some of my songs. Brant might even manage us, for a project he's doing at St. Rose. Bart's a Newhouse student too, a writer like me who might do either magazine or newspaper.
Then there's Mike, who lives directly above me. Mike's also a Newhouse student in broadcast who lives in Buffalo and actually got 10 points lower than me on the SATs. I was surprised to learn that the average SAT score for Newhouse students is like a 1300. Bart got a 1500. Amazing. Mike's going back home this weekend, since we have school off Monday for Labor Day. We eat together in Sadler about every day. We have so much to talk about all the time.
And who could forget the lovely ladies on my floor? They're all awesome -- the first weekend about 8 of us went to frat parties and just had fun. It was great. I felt so alive.
I'm convinced I'm the only girl on this campus who owns and plays guitar...but I'm love it. This whole duo thing is going to be interesting. I played through "Perhaps Another Day" with Bart, and he added some licks on his electric and some harmonies with his voice (one of the only guys' voices I've heard that's actually on key all the time!) and I was amazed how much more wonderful it sounds. Imagine what could happen with the rest of my originals?
