At 5 o'clock I met with my cohort to eat dinner before the Activities Fair later on in RPCC. I filled my plate with some Asian cuisine and other foods. I discovered soft-serve ice cream earlier today, so I definitely had to try it. It was delectable. Before we left the dining hall, I refilled my water bottle and headed to the Activities Fair. There were so many interesting activities! They all looked exciting--from yearbook to yoga. Unfortunately, I know my class will be rigorous and I won't have time to make practices/meetings. However, Carla and I did sign up for Cornell's Got Talent. (Woohoo!)

At some point, I remembered I had to do my laundry so Carla, Kevin and I ventured to the basement to wash our clothes. We just did them together because it was cheaper. We also decided to be proactive while our clothes were washed . We went to jog around the campus. It was refreshing, even though it wasn't much. Once we came back to the dorms, Carla and I decided to go socialize in the lounge. Well, that didn't happen because no one was there. So we went back to Carla's room to hang out. Then we made a trip to the convenience store on campus called Bear Necessities (the Cornell mascot is a bear). We bought a cup of carrots and celery as a snack and munched on those back in her room. I had to go back to my room before check-in to put my stuff away around 10 o'clock and at 10:40 PM (on weeknights check-ins are at 11:00 PM) Elizabeth and I went to check-in. I brushed my teeth before going back to my room after that and now I am preparing to read last minutes texts for my course.
The first day of school is tomorrow and I'm a ball of emotions--excited and nervous, mostly. Sometimes I feel very intimidated by the students here, but I know I will do my best to succeed in my class.
I apologize for the lack of pictures. I mostly stayed indoors studying or eating today. More to come tomorrow, hopefully!
