IU Welcome Week

I moved into IU this week. I'm living in the Kelley Living Learning Center and so far my experience has been fantastic. I've met tons of amazing peers and faculty. I went to Culture Fest and heard Preacher Moss speak (he is a comedian but he ties racism into his act and it was a great way to start welcome week). We had so much free food at Culture Fest and then the next day we got even more at the Taste of the Union.

Although I am having a blast, I actually can't wait for classes to start on Monday! I got my new MacBook Pro on Wednesday at the Herbert Presidential Scholar Reception and I am so thrilled. The reception was awesome. I ran into a girl from the Young Women's Institute and another girl who I met when I was interviewed for Girls' Nation. These coincidences affirmed my belief that I have chosen the right school to attend.

Shout-Out to my mom, Hope (who is the only person who reads my blog), for making me two batches of amazing muffins since I have been at IU. You've taught me so much.

I Always Forget About My Blog

Honestly, I find blogging interesting. It's just that I never think I have anything interesting to say. So far I have made a sad attempt at blogging but today I have motivation. I start college at the end of this month and I move into my dorm in ohhh 17 days? My aunt gave me the idea to blog about my ENTIRE college experience. I've accepted her challenge on one condition: she has to follow my blog. So here I go... I, Lindsey Ellington, promise to blog once a week throughout my years at Indiana University.
