We cannot forget about my Dad. I see him almost everyday, with news, coffee, and always a smile. He is really the best I could ask for. Always willing to help or give me advice about the city. He also texts me about so many amazing places I would never have heard of otherwise. He has that insider knowledge.
Alas, that's enough emotion for this post, let's get on to the rest of the day. After my amazing present, I went to some of the best orientation sessions i've attended all week. They were major specific and packed with helpful info. Less attended though due to the waning interest of the new students looking to "experience" New York City. I then ventured into another student fair where I looked into my minor, International Politics. Yes I am going to minor in in International Politics. We broke for lunch and then headed with a new group to complete an orientation activity called "The Common Project". This group was not as abrasive as the last. (It's a long story you don't want to know) We ended up with a kick-ass product and presentation. Excuse my french, but it deserves the emphasis. We worked up until dinner, then headed over to the dining hall for a game show night and some much deserved food. I ended up on stage winning a contest, and then becoming the party table with all of the best, loudest most exciting people. We danced, we ate and I also got called up onstage to show off my dance moves and won some FIT shorts!
After the break we all headed back to Nagler Halls common room to finish our project. It is amazing, we are amazing, I made new friends, and have an amazing piece to show for it. I will post pictures of the project tomorrow. Wouldn't want to leak the secret.
