Lee & Connor drove out to OIT today to go & visit Trevor.
We've been talking with him on Sundays on the phone, and last Sunday he informed us he'd used all his food points on the swipe card they get (part of tuition), even though he was supposed to have been budgeting those points (20,000 points/10 weeks = 2000 points a week). Somehow he used them all up 3 weeks ahead of time. All he had to eat anymore was Top Ramen.
This last month he also discovered what overdraft charges mean on your checking account!
Yes, indeed, one learns a lot one's first year at college!
Anyway - Lee took him grocery shopping and stuff, and I should get the whole rundown tonight after Lee & Connor get home.
His grades are better this term than last, and I guess he rocks in CAD class :)
He has learned a lot about himself & life away from home so far - it's all good (except the overdraft charges and the no food part).
Tell me where to go. Literally.
