Hello finally

So, I think that I have tried to post a blog 5-10 times now, but only just figured out how to. Yes, I am in college.
A couple of weeks ago I was walking down Main street to the train station in Worcester. The area of the city that my college is in is about comparable to the central district in Seattle, so students are cautioned about wandering about by ourselves, but it was the middle of the day on Sunday, so I figured it was ok. I did meet a couple of creepy people along the way, but there was this one guy who started walking right behind me, and then started talking about what a nice day it was for a walk, and how long a walk I was going for. I just nodded and smiled, and when I turned off Main st. to go to the train station, he waved and said goodbye, and continued on his way. I found the train station, and turned around to go back to school. when I was almost there, I heard this guy yell "Hey miss, are you following me?" I turned around, and it was the same guy, about 45 minutes and a mile and a half later, going in the opposite direction. It creeped me out a little, but he seemed pretty harmless so I just smiled and shook my head and kept going. I don't walk as much downtown anymore though.
Other than that, my college exploits are pretty boring. I tried out for the varsity soccer team, and am going to start practicing with them in the spring, but for now I am on a club soccer team made up almost entirely of international students, and I am the only girl. It's pretty fun though, at least until it starts snowing and getting super cold. I am also playing in the chamber orchestra here, which is about 100 times worse than Garfield's orchestra, but it works. The conductor is really nice, and now he wants me to be a music minor in his program, so that's cool. I also play a lot of taboo and trivial pursuit with my friends around 1:00 in the morning, which is lots of fun. All in all, college is pretty good, especially because there is soft serve ice cream in my dinning hall.
