An Amazing Week Away
I always say that the most important things you learn are not found in a textbook. This past week, I took a little field trip from Clark to do some learning outside of the classroom and the typical college campus.
Here’s a rundown of my week:
Wednesday- I went to Boston at night and slept over at my friend Tessa’s house so I could get to the airport super early the next day for my flight.
Thursday- Flew to St. Louis, checked into my hotel and went to the St. Louis Zoo, which is supposedly the best zoo in the country! It was really fun and beautiful. Then I had dinner with some people I met in St. Louis at this beautiful restaurant on the water.
Friday- The Clinton Global Initiative University conference, which I went to last year and blogged about, started! I heard from some inspiring people and met amazing students are leading and participating in social change movements all over the world.
Saturday- Clinton Global Initiative Conference all day! I met Muhammad Yunus, who I actually blogged about last year, because I was really touched by some of the stuff he has done.
Sunday- I flew back to Boston, went to lunch with one of my friends from high school who I haven’t seen in years, checked out some places where I might be living this summer, went to a concert at the House of Blues and stayed over with my friend Kelsey at BU.
Monday- I went to work at Freight Farms, the company in Boston that I am interning for now and will be working for this summer. At night I went to a fundraiser with my friend for her sorority.
Tuesday- I went to work at Freight Farms for most of the day, but at night I was on a panel for an event in Boston about bottled water. Then I came back to Clark around 10:30 pm.
Wednesday- Spree Day! (My next blog is dedicated to this alone.)
And in all of that, I only missed three classes. Talented right? A lot of my classes were canceled this week because two of my professors were sick. Now I’m back to day-to-day life, but only for a little while. Only 13 days of class left until finals and then school is over for the year.
