June 29: "Don't Stress"
Just as our schedules suggest, we strolled back to Goldwin-Smith for our writing workshop with our TA. During the session, we peer-edited our classmates' papers and provided critiques, insights, and suggestions. Because I have a knack for editing and the paper I had to read was decently written, I was among the first to finish. This is where the title of my blog comes in. When picking up my corrected papers, my TA, Des, takes my papers, gives me a little swat with them and says, "Don't stress. You always looked stressed." I couldn't help but laugh and shake off any signs of nervousness that he claimed to see. Overall, today was an informative day. It's really hitting me that next week is our last week here, and it's a tad bittersweet. I'll definitely absorb what's left of the time I have at Cornell University.
