Today, my daughter turns 18. Thus, I would like to introduce everyone to a wonderful new legal adult, Erin.
Right now, she’s at Berkeley. Although she loves her classes (loads and loads of history), at times she is not that enamored of the university. She’s finding it large, and finding it hard to make friends other than high school acquaintances. This is because she’s initially shy when first meeting people. We’re doing what we can as parents, but there is only so much you can do from a distance. This is a problem she needs to work out on her own, and I’m sure as the semesters go on it will get better for her. (Of course, if you would like to introduce her to folks and are in the area, let me know and I’ll get you contact info).
Alas, we wont be there tomorrow night to take her out to dinner, so we’ll just have to do it virtually by paying for it. The good news is that we’ll be seeing her next week when she comes down for Thanksgiving.
So with this (scheduled) post, let me be the first to wish her happy birthday from a very proud father.
