mathletenomore: (awake)
After showering for what seemed like an eternity and changing into pajamas, Lindsay returned to her room for some real food. Or at least comfort food. Ice cream in this case. There were moments over the past few days when she thought she'd never have ice cream again. Or listen to her favorite albums ever again. Or talk to her family...

That's why she spent the rest of the night talking to Sam on the phone. She listened to him ramble about his new Atari game, the latest movie he saw with his friends, and his new crush without tuning out. She wanted to hear about everything.

She told him about being a TA for the crankiest, weirdest teacher ever, about living in the cabins, and working at a sporting goods store that would probably rival their dad's.

That was all he needed to know.

mathletenomore: (disbelief)
Lindsay was still a little overwhelmed with everything she had been told about this place. She still wasn't quite sure what to believe. A phone call home seemed like the best option at the moment. Besides, she figured she should talk to her mother today of all days.

"Hi Mom," she said into the phone when her mother answered.

Apparently you sent me to 2010. To a place where magic and aliens exist. Where the weather consists of food for rain. Did I mention the gremlins?

That's what Lindsay wanted to say to her mother. Of course, she didn't want her parents sending her to an asylum next.

"Happy Mother's Day," she said instead. "Still mad?"

Her mother's voice was more comforting than it had been lately, so that was a good sign. After talking about the people she met and her roommate and her roommate's adorable dog, Lindsay hung up the phone, feeling somewhat less overwhelmed.

At least her first class starts tomorrow. A science class. Science was logical. Right?
