well i survived my first night!!! My roommate and i went out with some of her friends and walked around and checked out some bars!! I came to find out that you can't look at people and smile.....long story. Anyways, this afternoon i am going to go walk around a bit and get used to the town and what not. My bed is pretty comfortable, which i thought wasn't going to be. The shower is weird. Its small and doesn't have a curtain, just a little clear door thing that doesn't cover the whole tub. The toilets have buttons on the tops of the bowls which you use to flush. Today is mothers day here. I am going to give madame a picture frame with 3 pictures that i took around petoskey, hopefully she will enjoy them. Madame is a mosaic artist and loveesss art! The house is decorated with many pieces of art and pictures, its quite beautiful. This week it's supposed to rain so hopefully i won't get too wet.
