Just when I thought I couldn't have a more exhausting day than yesterday, I managed to out do myself with yet another spectacle of class, frisbee, and basketball! Let's start off in the classroom. Today, being the final day of the week, I assumed Dr. Sharkey planned a special debate that would showcase everything we learned. I was right, but only half-right. Similar to Wednesday, another student started the class by lecturing the book. Today, we went over the criteria for valid evidence and the seven parts that make evidence adequate. The class, as well as Dr. Sharkey and Austin the TA, was very engaged in the student's lecture and everyone threw in their two cents in regards to the lesson. I wasn't caught off guard by the student teaching the class, but it made me realize that I shouldn't have any assumptions going into the class because the class structure always seemed to change.

I somehow made it back to my dorm where I collapsed in my bed, exhausted from my first week of class and five straight days of frisbee, running, and more frisbee. They hosted a Toga party downstairs, but considering I had no energy and everyone said it wasn't any good, I decided to call it a day and retire to my dorm. I iced both my knees for about fifteen minutes each. I might force myself to relax Saturday, but I plan to check out College Town, so that might interfere with those plans. Here's to the first full weekend at Cornell.
