Another Great Day

It was another exciting day for me. I did my typical morning routine, showering, dressing, getting breakfast, going to class, etc. I wasn’t expecting anything great to really happen. I thought that it was just going to be a chill day where I would be spending time in my dorm. Class had been somewhat uneventful but I’m able to participate a lot more now that I feel comfortable. I enjoy talking about the Supreme Court cases and seeing how they set a precedent. I think that my professor also does a good job of engaging our class and leading us through group discussions. Although class is somewhat of a review of my AP U.S. history course, it really does go in depth and cover a lot of topics that my high school teacher skimmed over.

After class ended, I decided to go on an RA trip to the Fashion Institute of Technology. I didn’t know anyone when I originally signed up for the trip and didn’t know what to expect. I know that I do want to branch out here and get to know as many people as possible. I had a great time there and I met two other girls, one named Frances and another named Pamela. Afterwards, we went to Korea Town and explored the city a bit more. Korea Town has lots of cool things and it reminded me of San Francisco’s Japan Town. We ended up at the largest Macy’s/store in the world and got to see all the departments as well and the both of them shared with me some interesting personal stories about being Chinese and what their culture is like while living in America.

When I came back to my dorm, I stayed up pretty late getting my readings done and conversing with my roommates. They seem to be having a lot of fun as well on the RA trips that are offered here. I think that the school community that we have here is pretty friendly and adventurous. I love being apart of it and taking my class here.

  1. Monica, I would love to hear about one of the Supreme Court cases that you discussed in your class.
