I've already contacted Dax and been PMing Sara, but I wanted to let AuburnChick and blondielaw (and anyone else Samford-bound) that I'll be there with you guys in the fall. I'm going to check out apartments not this weekend but the next. Heidi has been helpful so far. Dax and Sara mentioned a pre-orientation party. Sounds exciting! I'm in a wedding the weekend before orientation, so hopefully I'll be able to attend. It'd be great to at least know a few faces before we start the hardest year of our education. Talking to some future classmates gets me itchin' to get out of Tallahassee and move to beautiful Birmingham. I frequently refer to it as the Ham around here. I think it makes for a good nickname.
By the way, Coldplay is going to be in Birmingham on Friday, Sep 16th. I don't know if you guys are into them or can imagine doing anything but studying at that point, but I'm definitely going. It's the weekend, and it's just one night. Tickets go on sale June 4th if you're interested in going.
