There is a definite sense of finality in leaving for college – new places, new things to see. At Caltech, college begins with “Frosh Camp”. This year, Frosh Camp was in Ventura.

There’s something weird about staying in a hotel when your own house is within walking distance, but so it was.

I went to four orientation meetings in the same auditorium today. I can now find this auditorium with absolutely no problem. I have never been more oriented.

There was a luau today. Food here is quite good. My lei was rainbow.

September 22, 8:57 PM–A Thursday again. I seem to have caught “Frosh Plague”. 

September 22, 8:58 PM. Guess who’s going to finally get to sleep on time. Nailed it.

What do you think?
