|Lucy in front of Uris Hall|
I had a seminar today at 3:15 PM, so Lucy, Reese, and I decided to tour the campus a bit. We decided to go to the famous Uris Library to see what the interior design. It was unique to be inside the building. After exploring Uris Library, we went back to North campus to go back "home." At 3:10 PM, I left to go the room where I seminar was held at. At the split moment when I walked in, the alarm rang. I was scared, nervous, and confused to how the situation unfolded. Luckily, it was not me, and I took my seat at the edge of the table. Casey Carr introduced us to mental illness today. We discussed about schizophrenia, down syndrome, and many more. We talked about what they do, such as hallucinations and/or depression, and different treatment. At the end of the discussion, Casey Carr acted out a situation in which we were doctors who had to diagnose the patient. We had a chance to ask questions and then got into groups to discuss about what we thought. In the end, the patient had bipolar disorder. With the hallucinations, and the high creativity, she had the symptoms of the mental illness. At the end of it all, I found it interesting and eyeopening to be learning more in depth of what psych doctors go through when diagnosing a patient.
The most exciting part of the day was the dinner. It has been forever since I have seen Julie, the birthday girl. When Helen and I finally saw her, we greeted her with a hug and a happy birthday. It has been forever since our cohort has came together to eat dinner, along with some additions to our amazing group, Reese,Joseph, and Nick. We had a blast laughing, eating, and telling jokes at the dinner table. Towards the end of dinner, our cohort went outside of the RPCC to meet up with Mr. Chan-Law. At our meeting, we took a group picture with the birthday girl, and discussed about our plans and the next meet up. It was a surprisingly fun day, and I can't wait until tomorrow.
After saying good-bye to Mr. Chan-Law, we all played some frisbee and volleyball. It was fun being active, especially when I did not have so much homework. Due to the construction outside of Goldwin Smith Hall, Professor Gilovich decided to move the class to Ives . I hear that it is quite difficult to find a clear path to the class because there are multiple entrances and exits throughout the building. I would like to wish Julie Lum a happy seventeenth birthday again. Julie has been an amazing friend and I can't wait to see her grow by the end of the course. I end this blog by mentioning how a group of girls sang happy birthday to a happy Julie Lum.
|Happy Birthday Julie!|
