talking with MBID gradSo I'm sitting in the school computer lab since we were required to "sign" on before Monday since some of our classes will need the computer and they want to make sure we can log-in, before the first day of classes.
My classmates and I were talking to a girl who graduated from our course last year and she was telling us that if we're smart we will apologize now to our family and friends b/c this will be a very tough year. She said that we (students, esp. int'l students) are likely to be tired, short tempered, and cranky at times & since most people have a tendency to "take things out" on the ones we are closest to we should warn them all now just in case we "lash out" by accident. She apparently had some problems along these lines during the year since she is from Vancouver & between the time differences, school stress, lack of having local family support it was very trying and she hopes that it won't happen for us, but she thought we might like to keep it in mind. It was nice of her to say that so that we are aware and try to deal with the stress before we go and call home and saying something we shouldn't.
Off to try to get my bank account settled, change the registry's misspelling of my name (they put an "H" on my student ID card which throws people off when they look at my passport!), and go to the post office.
Hope all is well with you!
