Normal, Non- Airborne Muggle Transportation the Way to University for Emma Watson

Actress Emma Watson has updated her website to confirm that she has arrived safely at Brown University where she will be attending school this year here in the US. She writes that she "arrived on Tuesday, and is having "the most amazing time." Emma continues "I'm still so excited to be here; I've already met so many incredible people. I'm over my jet lag and now I just want classes to start! Hope you are all well and happy and if you've just started college or university that it is everything you hoped it would be." 

Tabloids and paparazzi have been relentlessness in their pursuit of Emma arriving at school, with scores of reports flying all over the internet (which will not reappear on TLC). One such ludicrous rumor had Emma arriving at school in airborne manner, which the Hermione Granger actress dispelled by stating "Oh and contrary to the reports you may have read, I didn't arrive by helicopter. I've only been in one once when I was little and I was terrified. Now back to my studies! Speak soon."

I hope that the paparazzi leave her alone, and I’m glad Leaky is respecting her wishes.

Jeez how difficult would it be to be normal? That would be so annoying. But I’ll know she’ll do great.

It must be very hard for Emma with being in a different country, starting classes and having press and other classmates taking here photo at every turn. I hope it all dies down and they allow here to enjoy here college experience. I know when I went away to school the first few weeks were extremely difficult with being home sick and just adjusting to a new place and I only went one state away.
I think it is great that leaky is respecting Emma’s wish to just be a normal student and is not publishing any of the photos that are out there
