Status: Week One Complete

The first week is officially done. I do believe that overall it went very well. I am truly looking forward to the rest of the class, especially since I know what to expect. Today we had double session, rather than a lecture. It was also our first “early dismissal” day, if you will. Since we have no classes after lunch on Friday, today was the first day we actually had some time to hang out and have fun.(Not that we will not be busy working for the majority of what we have left of our weekend. The Freedom and Justice students have another essay due this Monday. I am glad that we already got to experience writing college papers, and do not worry, I’m not. This essay topic does however seems simpler, as it is only talking about Plato’s critique of Democracy.)
I did spend some time with the rest of the gang – and of course Julia, Justine, and I still ate lunch together. However, after that I went back to my dorm and ended up falling asleep. (Yes, you can laugh if you want to, I certainly did.) I got some much needed rest. After my nap, nonetheless Justine, Louisa, Yueming, and I spent some quality girl time together. (I think that by this time a few others had also retired for the night.) I feel like we Lady Titans are truly bonding like never before. Although we’ve known each other for a long time, this is the first substantial amount of time we have gotten to spend together. It is really nice to know that our trip to Cornell has benefits in so many aspects.

  1. Ramiah,

    It sounds like you had a pretty decent day. You learned a little something, you got yourself a good nap and you spent some quality time with some friends. How does it get any better than this?
