It's finally Friday!

I cannot believe that I have made it through my first week of classes. I must say, the week goes by fast, but the days are so slow. It seems to balance out - long days and short weeks. Before I know it, I will be back in sunny California, if it is sunny of course.

Today was mainly a day of office hours. We all were just productively working on our Powerpoint presentations. I love working with my group. We always contribute different inputs and when one person does not like something, we modify that idea. We like to come to a full agreement on something. I think our presentation will take a different direction compared to all the other groups. I am really excited for Monday.

After voluntary office hours, many of the students on campus decided to go to the Cornell Mall. A lot them, including me, went to the movies and watched Transformers 2. That made my day. I have been wanting to watch that since I first saw the preview weeks ago. I even got to go shopping. Mr. Crossley, I have followed your orders. I finally was able to do something for myself, something I truly needed after a long week.

  1. Louisa,

    I'm so glad that you had the chance to Transformers-II. From what I've been reading, you could have lost your status as a teenager if you had not seen the movie BEFORE this weekend.

    It's great reading about your group and how well you're working together. Group dynamics can be touchy sometimes and compromises have to be made that end up diluting what you're trying to achieve. While I always appreciated input on the projects I was on I also liked the fact that I was usually the boss so the final decision rested with me. As the saying goes: I may not always be right but I'm still the boss.

    Enjoy your weekend.
