I would definitely say that I am getting the hang of things here. Today, everything seemed pretty normal. We met for breakfast after printing our essays at Appel, and then walked across campus to McGraw Hall for lecture. John Locke is the philosopher we are now dealing with, and was therefore the topic of Professor Kramnick’s lecture. After that we went to Goldwin Smith Hall for discussion. I think that considering how much Locke’s ideals have shaped the politics of our country, almost all of the students are generally more comfortable with this information. These theories do not seem as new. Lunch was, as always, at trillium - which is actually a very good dining hall.
Our Plato essay was due today in our writing workshop. Little did we know we were going to be peer editing in class. Our TA said he did this so we will all realize that everyone has some struggles when it comes to writing. Mr. Desmond also gave us the study guide for the Prelim we have on Wednesday. Overall it was a very good day. Nothing too exciting, but I think everyone needs days like these every once in a while.
One exciting thing for tomorrow is that Mrs. Kronenberg will be here and will be sitting in on our classes. I am looking forward to seeing her.
