Okay, before I disappear into the abyss again, I'd just like to say that
I am so incredibly happy to back at Knox. Seriously. I know that orientation
week was long and stressful and a lot of work, but entirely worth is. I adore
the international students and the bulk of the first year class. I also have three
really great transfer students on my floor this year, which is pretty amazing too.
It's such a bizarre thing to be seen as this plethora of information by all of these
new people, but let me say, I quite like it. My orientation group has been pretty
much the best. They have the best attendance ever. I pretty much have each
and everyone of them returning for my meetings, and that way, I've gotten to
know them better than most orientation leaders get to know their groups. Also,
yesterday was my first of many meetings with Dean Romano, and get this,
I AM STARTING KNOX'S FIRST GALLERY SPACE IN GALESBURG, ILLINOIS!!!
I don't think I can convey just how big this is, but seriously, we had an amazing
meeting, we see eye to eye, and now my job is round up a group of 2 to 3
students to want to be incredibly involved in the process. In about a week, we'll
meet again, and then we'll start looking at properties. Things are happening this
year. BIG things. I'm also applying for a Knox Blogger position with Admissions,
so I'm looking forward to seeing if that takes me anywhere.

I hope this helped to fill in some blanks everyone might have who reads this.

P.S. Lexie is a real person!

That's all.
