:: Thursday, February 05, 2004 ::

I saw the most disturbing television commercial today. It featured Lassie trying to protect the little boy from a mountain lion. Lassie then starts doing Kung Fu a la The Matrix, complete with "bullet-time" slow-motion. It was most frightening.

Today, I didn't have a class until the afternoon, but I still got up early to go to a slew of appointments and meetings. After lunch, I went to my Personality Psychology class. It looks to be fairly interesting. The professor is offering this class one last time before he leaves to write a book, so he's going to make this final semester the best one.

After class, I went for a short walk to the Harvard Business School, where I visited their "chapel," which was this big greenhouse with lots of beautiful ferns and green plants and a waterfall fountain and pond. The plants could survive during the wintertime because they were in the greenhouse and there was a heater to keep the temperature just right. I enjoyed seeing green plants again.

In the evening, I had dinner with some friends. I then went to an "Academic Advising Jamboreel," where I got some helpful advice on my concentration, which is now Cognitive Neuroscience (which is still in the psychology department). Tonight, my friends had a big tea party. We chatted and some drank rum-flavored tea and tasted rum cake brought back from the Bahamas by a couple of friends who had gone there for intersession.

Quote of the Day: "There are fish balls in this soup? I didn't know fish had balls!"
