I got to thinking as I wandered around the empty campus, lonely as a cloud, I'm not a country girl. I don't like living in a place that smells like cows. Not a vague whiff now and then, not a subtle hint of cow, it smells like a cow is following me around campus. I need to be around people. Lots of people. I don't need to know them, just having busy, productive people around motivates me. I need more of a town than just one tiny stretch of main street. This isn't working out. If I was at Barnard I wouldn't care about being alone over the long weekend. There's stuff to do in the city. Even just walking around in the city is more interesting than walking around here. There's nothing here. This long weekend is a sign. I don't have any homework really, I only just started class and we haven't really gotten started yet, but I'm going to study all weekend. I'm going to get straight A's and I'm going to get involved and I'm going to apply for a transfer and get the hell out of here. It's 12 in the afternoon on a college campus and the only sound is crickets.
