More Museums and Maddening Disappearances
I’m the kind of guy who’s slow to make new friends, but the awkwardness of not knowing anyone has more or less completely vanished. I managed to wake up around nine on a weekend to meet up with some guys for a trip to the Natural History Museum! (Yes, waking up at nine of my own free will is insane.) While I feel that it was over hyped, it housed a large collection of very cool exhibits. My two favorite parts were the dinosaur room, and the planetarium. The short film, “Journey to the Stars” especially was amazing! I truly felt like I was hurdling through space at unfathomable speeds!
Unfortunately, there is some VERY bad news. That is I have not seen my camera for the past week. I’m absolutely sure I packed it when moving to the Columbia Dorms and I also had it the first day at the dorms. However I haven’t seen it since then, so I’m going to have to declare it lost. I’m really sorry as well as mad at myself. Mostly because that was my mom’s brand new camera, but also because for Don, there will not be as many pictures up here as there would have been. I’ll still try to borrow someone else’s camera whenever possible, to snap pictures.
Anyway, to end this blog on a lighter note, most of our entire residential program will be going to the beach tomorrow, then coming back to watch the fourth of July fireworks! I’ll get some rest tonight so I can get up (somewhat) early the next day. Good night!
