The Infamous Prelim
After the test we had a quick break. I was glad to see Mrs. Kronenberg again, I did not know that we would be doing so. We had a nice chat, and I will defiantly be applying to Cornell this fall. Not because of our conversation, but rather because I know that I have found a good fit. I do not mind being in a rural setting without a shopping mall; nor do I mind the walking. I love my professor, my TA, and my class. I am so grateful to have this opportunity!
Following our short break, we had a double lecture on feminism. It was very interesting. I cannot wait to dive head first into this topic; not that I did not dive head first into the last. The history behind all of the stuff we are learning is so intriguing.
When lecture ended we were free for the afternoon. We decided to check out the Harry Potter rooms in Uris Library. I know that I visited the library yesterday (with my roommate) but it was still very captivating. I even took a picture on my phone and set it as my new wallpaper.
In the midst of our John Stuart Mill reading, Julia, Justine, and I took a break to make T-Shirts. This was an event held on the third floor of the dorm. It was really fun decorating shirts with Sharpies and clothing paint.
Now I have to finish up the reading for the night, and hit the hay. Tomorrow is going to be a long day.
