Today was a hectic day. Finally, the effects of not getting enough sleep for the past week have caught up to me. When I woke up this morning, I had to convince myself -- force myself -- to get out of bed and get ready for class. But once I got there, it wasn't as bad as I had expected.
When we had our first class discussion yesterday, there was an ... awkward aura about the room. I for one didn't know more than 5 of my classmates by name, even though there are ONLY 11 students in our class! When we began discussions today, we picked off right from where we left... and it was still awkward. By the end of the 2-hour seminar, I felt that the atmosphere changed dramatically, perhaps because I began to participate. Regardless of why I felt the change, I felt much better and more comfortable.
By the time our first week of class officially ended in the afternoon, we were required to turn in our first draft of the outline and annotated bibliography for our research essay. Although it was a pain having to finish everything within so tight a time frame, I cannot stress how free and weightless it felt after turning in that draft.
And to end the day on a good note, Michelle and I went along with another friend to go out for a Friday night at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art)! Can't beat it! Here's a funny video from the Subway, enjoy!
