I had a roomie for a few weeks last year named Winnie from Taiwan. Well she came back to the canyon today. I knew she was coming back because she wrote to me on facebook and told me. So I was waiting for her outside of HR when she came in (with camera of course)...boy was she surprised!!!
Now in the last 2 years, I have seen a bunch of kids come & go and I wish a few more of my favorites would come back, so I was thrilled when Winnie told me she would be here again. I don't spend lots of time outside of work with the exchange students that work here, but even still...its nice to bump into them around the park either on the shuttlebus or in e-cafe or at the rec center. I guess seeing as my own kids are not here I sorta substitute them with the foreign kids that are here.
Winnie's 2 schoolmates that came with her last year will not be here this year. So she was nervous about traveling back by herself. I helped her get settled into her room at Colter Hall (I've been here over 2 yrs and today was the first time I ever walked around in Colter) and then we went to see her roomie who works as a cashier in Maswik. Winnie was surprised that some of the co-workers she worked with last year remembered her. Last yr she was a line server at Maswik, this yr she will be a hostess.
