I spent most of the day in the library, reading and writing for Monday’s classes. I’m ridiculously pleased this semester to have four courses I enjoy – fingers crossed that it keeps up! I’ve never had such a solid grouping of courses. Sure, I pick them every semester, but until now I haven’t done a very good job. Maybe it’s because I’m getting a better sense of what and how I like to learn. Generally, I’m finding that courses in Carnegie (the social science building) are the safest bet. Not coincidentally, all my courses are housed under that roof right now. All is well in my academic world.
But you aren’t here to read about my academic life. So let’s get down to business. First, a song.
After hours in the library, I swung by Mac Christian Fellowship’s table between Old Main and the Campus Center, where they were offering root beer floats to passing students. From the little experience I’ve had with the group, they’re incredibly kind and giving people, whose positive influence can be felt across campus. Other than this booth and a movie showing a couple years back, I haven’t been to any events, but MCF is always very welcoming.
Having given up pop (or soda or coke, if you’re so inclined) about 7 years ago, I declined the offer of a float, but took the free food advice they offered me and walked away with a scoop of vanilla ice cream as well – in a compostable cup, no less (Mac is pushing hard for a waste-free campus by 2020, and widespread compost is a new addition this year).
I’m heading to work for the evening (someone has to watch the buildings at night), but there will be more free food in my near future!
