It's that time of year. Graduations. My youngest son Frankie is graduating from High School in I thing 16 more days. I just can't believe it. It just seems like Yesterday he was going to preschool at 3 years old. I'm sure everyone feels that way.
I'm so very proud of him! He made Salutatorian of the class of 2013. He won numerous awards and scholarships. Some were a nice surprise.

Re: Congrats bone junior

LOL Yeah, I hope so too. First years there is no cooking in the rooms. Not even sure if your allowed a toaster oven or a hot plate. Not sure about a microwave. Some of them bring it anyway. No cars either.

Re: Congrats bone junior

My son's flat had a kitchen, so cooking equipment was provided. He bought himself a George Foreman grill though and kept that in the kitchen too. I don't think they were allowed cooking appliances in their bedrooms. This was just as well, as my son put a hot pan on the kitchen's window ledge, as all the kitchen surfaces were covered (you can imagine), and burnt the ledge. We had to pay £80 to have it fixed! Is there a share kitchen at the end of the accommodation's dorm corridor, or is it all catered meals, like a boarding school?

When does Frankie start, bone?

Re: Congrats bone junior

He has to get a meal plan. From what his brother says they're so many places for him to eat. But very expensive. I think that's why no cooking in the dorm. Fire or damage. I hear there's something called the Freshman 15. Everyone gains 15lbs the first year. Everyone just goes toward anything to eat. lol We'll find out.

I'm not sure of the exact date. It's sometime at the end of August. OMG he got a list in the mail of all the things he needs to get. Some things I hadn't even thought of.
