on campus, on about four hours of poor sleep. Freezing rain made getting out of Portland an adventure--I'll tell the story later. For now, need to go call my parents (wireless phone battery in room is dead), shower, and find people. Also, appeal some kind of room charge: can't tell what, because the copy is totally illegible, but probably has to do with my rice cooker, the one *with* an auto-shutoff. Dug out the manual, need to contact house adviser. Also, in next few days, need to get CDO to help with this resume or CV for the summer program, and write short essay for first seminar class. Also unpack. First, call and shower.
