back to Boston!
And in 24 hours, I have dealt with a flood, my first midnight resident angrily pounding at my door, a deee-lightful parent encounter, water damage up in the Penthouse...I am ready to go back to the cabin.
Thank goodness for the loon CD my mom bought at a garage sale just before I left, it is doing a great job of chilling me out.
The best of these was probably the flood, I arrived back at the dorm around 9:30, took a quick shower, and decided it was time for dinner. I opened my door to grab some pasta from my pantry closet and heard the sound of water.
"Huh. Someone must be taking a bath with the bathroom door open.."
I round the corner, and there is an inch of water on the carpet, slowly leaking into rooms, coming towards me.
This was no bath.
I started wading into three-inch-deep puddle in the kitchen in my flip-flops, trying not to fall into the rush of water coming from the cabinet under the sink. I opened the door, and more water came rushing out. A pipe had burst. I got back to my room as quickly as possible, called the emergency Fixit hotline, and finally, four hours and 21 emails later, I declared a tentative victory and went to bed.
I should have taken a picture, but I was freaking out too much about the newly-renovated kitchens, the new girls who had just moved in, and, you know, I just didn't think about it.
What a way to start the semester.
