The ship is definitely "tossing and pitching" as they say and I can definitely feel it. The captain says that we have hit some rough water. Hmm... I really hope so because if this is what it is always like I don't think I'll ever get my sea legs. I, along with almost everyone else onboard, am being tossed along inside the halls and rooms struggling not to land on someone or something. It's been crazy and its funny to watch others struggle along closely watching their feet with their hands out ready to catch themselves but it's not so funny when its me. My roommate and I have hit it off fairly well. She isn't at all like me as far as her college life goes but we have a lot in common in other areas. We both stayed up and talked for a while last night which was nice just to get to know each other a little better. She came into this not really knowing anyone much like me but has quickly formed a little group that she does almost everything with. I'm still trying to figure out exactly who I want to hang out with and have mostly just been meeting new people. (it's a little weird since I've never had to go out of my way before) I'm discovering that I'm not quite as outgoing when I only know five out of 685 people. The task is a little bit daunting but I know that in no time I'll feel right at home. It will definitely help when all the classes start and all of the clubs and groups get formed. So far there is no Bible Study but I'm really hoping that the group from the online forum will get it under way. One of the girls said that she would put up posters after we had been at sea for a while. Today we also had our first global studies class and then just a bunch of informative meetings. I am really looking forward to finally just getting into some kind of a routine even if its only on the days when we aren't in port.
