:: Friday, March 14, 2003 ::

I went to chemistry class this morning and turned in my problem set. Then I had a meeting with my academic advisor, helpful as always. I had section for my Vietnam War class, and then I took a much-needed nap considering the fact that I had slept very little the previous night due to my chemistry problem set. I then went to section for my introductory psychology class. It was so hilarious because our TF (teaching fellow) kept making witty comments. "There's a film called Farmer Eroticism." And then we discussed milking cows for some reason. "What does it feel like to milk a cow? Do you pull and squeeze?" Then the reply was, "You have to aim for the bucket," and a visual demonstration utilizing suggestive hand gestures accompanied the explanation. I then whored out my brain for four psych studies to make some money. Two of the studies were visual memory experiments, and it got a bit tedious looking at nearly the same thing over and over and typing on a keyboard whether the object was facing the left or the right.

This evening my friends and I went out to dinner to celebrate somebody's birthday. We went to an Indian cuisine restaurant, and the food was quite delicious. I had curry chicken with rice. The curry wasn't too overpowering, but it was strong enough to be just right. We had some great discussions about war in Iraq and other pressing issues - not the traditional conversations of birthday parties but fun nonetheless. We then came back to the campus and went to the top floor (the tenth floor) of the Science Center, where there is a huge telescope and observatory. My friend knew how to set everything up, and we looked at such details as craters on the moon and Jupiter and four of its moons. It was an amazing experience. I had never looked into such a sophisticated telescope, and the sight was incredible. It was too bad that there were a few clouds that obscured the view. I shall add this to the list of great things I have had done that can't be done elsewhere. Then Jordan and I went to see a version of MTV's Singled Out dating show sponsored by our prefects and involving many freshman from our school as contestants. It was truly hilarious the questions and clever responses people made up in order to secure a date. "Spits or swallows?" "Tightie whities, Joe Boxer, or let it all hang out?" etc. etc.

I went back to my dorm and watched the end of the movie Ice Age across the hall. I then decided to go to bed early because I felt as if I was starting to get a little sick. I hope I'm not!!!
