"um, er, um, ok, um, can i do that online or something? i don't think it was quite like that the last time i was here." (hell, i can't even remember how we were assigned advisors back then. i think it may have been something lowtech, like, oh, posting a list.)
"uhhuh." back to the computer.
at that point, i was like, eh, ok, whatever, i'll figure it out. famous last words. i can't log into TRACS because i don't have a Unity ID yet (Friday at Reg & Records, after i handed over my paperwork: "so, i assume they're going to to mail me whatever i need?" "um, yea." "any idea when that'll be?" "oh, i don't know. registration is in October sometime, so it'll be before then.") so, someone who goes to NCSU or works there... when she said "pull up my ADA" did she mean logging into TRACS or something else? my advisor is going to have my pin, so figuring out who they are (once i get put back into State's system, which may take a little while) will be kind of imperitive. or i could just be patient and assume they're going to mail me stuff eventually that tells me all this.
i'm feeling mildly old and crotchety. every time i go on campus, i start muttering to myself about how some of these children can't be old enough to be going to college. and the way some of those girls dress to go to class...
