Although I was a little nervous when we first got here I settled in really quickly tonight. I am one of six minors receiving a dog this week and my classmates and I are already really tight. We learned some basic rules and got some basic equipment but the main purpose of tonight was to become familiar with the dorms. Tomorrow we start some command training in the morning and then after lunch we will be meeting our new partners. I am so excited! I am already feeling at home. It is so comforting to be in a place where everything is set up for people who cannot see. I have really enjoyed learning about my classmates and comparing stories and ideas. Its nice to run into things around people who totally get it. Time to get some rest and prepare for dog day tomorrow!
