So these first three weeks back has been flying by. Classes are great even though they are a lot of work… In my Honor’s class on Poverty and Education we have already gotten hands-on experience from a program called Promise Neighborhood here in Springfield. It is inspired by the Harlem Children’s Zone in New York. It is a very cool program where people from poor communities come together to figure out how to make the situation better for the people living in the area. Promise had a meeting for about 150 people last week, and together with a few people from my class we took care of the kids so that the parents could discuss the changes that needed to be made. It was a lot of fun to hang out with the kids, but I was exhausted after three hours.
Other than that I would like to propose adding an extra day for the weekends, they are just too short! There are just so many activities to get involved with, homework to be done and friends to hang out with! And all those little things that you want to do just never seem to get done. Me and my roommate have been thinking about bunking our beds for two weeks now, but we never seem to have the time to get it done. We both pulled up our calendars earlier today and put “BUNK BEDS” for Thursday afternoon or Friday morning. I guess that’s just nerdy planning for you…
Have a great week!
