Day 260: September 19, 2014
I started the day off with a smoothie for breakfast and a PRISM officer’s meeting. We spoke for about an hour and came up with some cool ideas about the semester. It looks like we are actually going to put effort into this club this year, which I’m excited about!
After that, I printed my homeworks for the week and went to the lab with Jessica to do our assignment for next Friday. I spent all afternoon working on it, with her help, and after having a dinner break I actually finished it! It was the first time I’ve ever done anything that didn’t require any debugging. Wow! I got it right the first time. I was pretty stoked. The logic diagram was pretty messy. I finished the lab around 7:30 and then Jessica and I began working on another project we had.
At 9 I went to South to take the purity test with everyone as a group. I’m at 62%, 5 points lower than last year. Woo! Maybe I shouldn’t be proud of that, idk. It’s basically this really long test with 500 yes/no questions that measures how “pure” you are. It’s a popular thing at this school.
Then I met up with Shruti and Jessica and we hung out with Kanak and his crew for the rest of the night. It was a fun time. We were all happy. Finished the night off by falling asleep during a movie in Case. I headed back to my room around 3:30 am or so.

Day 259: Thursday, September 18, 2014
I attended my classes and the CMC French table (though I was quiet and shy and didn’t say much because my spoken French is terrible). We also chose topics for our psych paper. I’m going to research the neuroscience behind depression. :o I can’t wait to learn more about it.
Then after that, we met up at 6 to go to the Hollywood Bowl! Woooooo! Daniel Johnston was the first opener. I wasn’t expecting him! No one else in our group knew who he was but he played “True Love Will Find You In the End.” :) The Breeders were the second opener. They were really good! I need to listen to more of them. Then Neutral Milk Hotel played! It was fantastic! We were pretty much in the very back of the stadium, and we couldn’t see their faces at all because they refused to use the video screens. But we could see the bassist jumping around in circles which we all admired and laughed about! It was awesome. The set was only about an hour or so but it was perfect. I really enjoyed it. I think my favorite song was “Ferris Wheel on Fire” (according to the online setlist). I had never heard it before but it was just gorgeous.
Jour 258: le 17 septembre, 2014
This day was nonstop. I woke up, did homework, went to my classes, and then we had our first PRISM meeting. It went okay, I think. We were mostly dealing with logistics for the rest of the year. We got some new members- Freshmen! Yay. :D After that I pretty much spent most of my evening in Platt and Jessica’s room doing homework. I also went to Zumba class, but I took it easy because my body wasn’t at its best I had to finish two engineering assignments in one night because I was going to a concert the next day. Ack! I ended up finishing my assignments at 2:15 in the morning, and then hung out in the couch boat at East until 3. It was pretty relaxing. I had a hard time falling asleep though, since my adrenaline was pumping from staying up late.

Day 257: September 16, 2014
Slept terribly because I wasn’t feeling well. Hopefully I will get a better rest tonight. I woke up at 8:30, went to class, did homework, and had a lunch meeting with John and Angelica about how to improve PRISM this year and what kind of goals we have. We may actually improve the club this year.. Woah!
The weather was hot which made me feel even worse. But I forgot that I was sick when I was distracted - during my meeting and also during French conversation class. We played a game of “Guess Who?”. I was Robert Downey Jr.
Finished the night off by working on my STEMS assignment in Platt. I made some progress. Not a ton.. Hopefully I’ll get both that and E82 done tomorrow.

Day 256: Monday, September 15, 2014
It was pretty hard to wake up today. I tried getting a little work done in the morning (wasn’t super successful), and attended my classes. French is super fun even though there is a lot of homework (every day).
It was around 100 degrees today, hence I wore my shortest shorts and my shortest dress. I worked in the mailroom from 4:30 to 6. It wasn’t too bad, I just released packages to students and worked on my French homework. Jennifer and Shruti came and ate a late (6:00) dinner with me. Yay! We ended up talking to some international Pitzer students. It was pretty interesting.
After dinner my stomach didn’t feel too well. I hung out with Hannah for a little bit and we chatted about life. It was nice. She’s super busy so I haven’t seen her a lot these past two weeks. I went to Zumba class just to tell my instructor that I wasn’t feeling well. She let me sign in so I won’t have an unexcused absence. Yay! Then I came to my room, tried to do reading, played Animal Crossing, took a nap, got up, started some homework, and threw up. Yuck. Hopefully my stomach will feel better now.
