...Since my last update, so here goes:
My God has it been a grueling and fun day today. Waking up and packing pretty much almost my entire room and trying to get here in time to claim my dorm before they expunge me from the list... Through the morning my mother was shouting because she was really worried that I might lose my dorm by not showing up on time and kept saying my sister and I were taking forever to pack. That wasn't even the biggest concern today, though. RIGHT in the middle of driving my car to the campus, following behind my mother's car, I heard this rapid, loud, thumping noise and after a little while pulled over to the side of the road with my mother pulling over in front of me. Turns out... My front-right tired was nearly ripped to shreds. We called one of my aunts to help us replace the flat, and when she and my uncle arrived about an hour later, investigated further and found out one of my other tires could be losing air, I need new breaks, and a new muffler. Woo. But, we packed mine and my sister's stuff into my aunt's vehicle and continued on, and eventually my sister and I finished packing in our own dorms. My mother broke down and started to cry. I'm feeling worried about her.
But, later I celebrated my arrival at MTSU at the welcome-day ceremony where they were serving a ton of free food. Met my roommate, who seems pretty chill, and finally got access to campus internet. Still can't rest TOO easy quite yet, as I need to pick up an ID card, a copy of the class schedule I lost, my books, and accessories for my room to help make it easier for me to organize. Really I still got a long ways to go. It's a loooong semester ahead of me. Longer than this status update. Hoping I can make it through in one piece.
