My new home part 2
This story is dedicated to Eden Variss for being a great friend and a great support.
However, I am sad to say that she is leaving Reedsy.
*sends all kinds of farewell messages *
I want to thank her for everything she has done for me.
Please go read her stories. They are amazing.
I didn't tell you what happened yesterday, as I was very busy settling in, with the timetable and the new rules and regulations.
First, I will tell you how my first day here went.
Well, I was really nervous and excited at the same time as I entered the campus. I was greeted by Louisa, who is the head guide. She is a 4th year student here at the Rossville Boarding School.
She was kind enough to leave me at the principal's office after giving me a tour of the building and the grounds.
The beauty of the gardens and all the paintings done by the students, had left me speechless.
You have no idea, dear diary how much I wish I could paint like that.
And the best thing about this school is that it has a library, a humongous library. My mind is blown. I knew right away where I would find myself spending most of my time in the future.
Now, back to what happened after Louisa left me at the principal's office. Well, the principal was an old lady who was really sweet. She handed me all my books and my timetable with the book of rules and regulations.
After going through the rules and regulations, the first thing that came to my mind was that they were pretty easy to follow: not as hard as I thought they would be. I headed to my room, number 30 on the 3rd floor. I found my room and went in. I couldn't believe what I saw. It was a large room with two single beds and white walls. One side of the room was decorated nicely with light colors including pink, white, teal, lemon yellow and lavender . I assumed that was my roommate's side
Well, mine was going to be dark colors like navy blue, red, black and grey.
Just as I was looking around the room a girl came in.
“Oh! Hi! Are you my roommate?”
“Yup! Sure am.”
And we became friends in an instant.
She is my very first friend here in Roseville and my roommate. Her name is Eden. She is really helpful and friendly. I was made to feel very welcome here by how warmly she greeted me.
I am so happy that she is my roommate because she is just the sweetest person ever and the first person who shares my interests . It is as if she is my twin. A copy of me. (except for the face and body though)
I can't wait to see what fate has in store for me this year. Whatever it is, I think I can handle it because I already have a friend by my side.
And the mattress on my bed is so soft I will probably fall asleep as soon as I lie on it.
I have to go, dear diary, as I have to sleep, so that I can wake up tomorrow in good time before the first class.
The first thing I did this morning was to get ready for the day and go for breakfast. Eden and I talked about how many classes we had together and where all of my classes are going to be.
It was my first day attending the classes here. I was nervous but they went pretty well. I was a little bored in maths class, as the teacher kept on repeating the same thing again and again. But at least, because of her, I have memorized the equations.
All of my teachers were very kind and sweet. But I liked my science teacher the best. She gave me a candy bar for answering all the questions correctly.
We ate lunch at 12:00, Then we went back to attending classes.
After the classes were over we were given an hour to do our homework. I finished my work in 30 minutes and asked the head teacher's permission to go to the library.
So she said that I could, so . So, I went to the library and picked out some interesting books to read at night in my room.
Books I picked out :
I registered these books at the counter and headed back to my room.
By then It was nearly 6:00 in the evening and we have to be in our rooms by 7:00 to get ready for bed.
As I had another hour before curfew, I decided on clearing my room a little. I heard a knock on the door. I thought that it was a teacher and quickly pushed everything under my bed, before opening the door.
As I opened the door I saw that the person behind the door was not a teacher but Eden, my roommate. Oh! How stupid of me to think that it would be a teacher and stuff everything under the bed so that she wouldn't see that my room was a mess.
I smiled and let her in. After closing the door, I put everything back in its place and got ready for bed.
Eden and I talked a little about how our day went. After we finished talking I went to the washroom and washed my face and took a shower. Then, I did my skin-care routine. I picked out my night clothes. I decided to wear a navy-blue night dress.
Eden wore a black dress with golden polka dots.
I picked Sherlock Holmes to read and got comfy in my bed.
However, I was able to read only till the 2nd chapter, as I was very tired and sleepy.
Well, that's it for today, dear diary. I have to put the lights off
and I am really exhausted now from all the work. I really hope I will be able to wake up in time for breakfast.
I know that this story is not at all related to the prompt that I chose. I didn't have any ideas for the prompts this week. So, I wrote a story which doesn't go with any prompt.
