Anyone else attend/going to attend mtc?


#1

just wondering if there was anyone else on here who is going to start at mtc next week. been here a week and a half now and am already bored to tears waiting for classes to start. i don’t understand why they have registration a week before orientation. what the heck is everyone else doing during that time? i can only stand to hang out with my relatives for so long. shame i didn’t get to meet anyone at registration. wish there was some way to get in touch with incoming students before orientation just to hang out or something. i guess most people fresh off the plane aren’t really surfing the web at this point, but thought it would be worth a shot.

Well, let’s have a coffee or tea or something. I’m not starting at Shita this term, but I was thinking about it – is that close enough?? Don’t know how interesting I am but at least I’m not one of your relatives…

Since I work more or less part-time hours, I’m free quite a bit. I remember very well what it was like waiting that week – I came over years and years ago when I was 19 and I thought I’d go crazy, too. (Didn’t have any relatives here either, although I’m not sure if that’s an advantage or a disadvantage!)

Drop me an e-mail at terry@oriented.org if you want.

Why do people have to spell it shita?

First, because that’s the way THEY spell it (you don’t spell Lee Teng-hui’s name Li Denghui, do you?)

And secondly, there might just be an element involved at times that is reflected by that particular spelling…well, need I say more??

Hmmmm…you didn’t hear that second crack from ME, mind you!

Well, if you just want to hang out wiht “incoming students”, then I couldn’t help.
But if you want to hang out with “any” friend, then you might contact me. I recently got many free time since I just done my work last week.
