Today is probably the first non-rainy day we've had here since summer college began! I woke up to the sun shining through my windows and looked out to see an empty and peaceful courtyard. Cornell is definitely much quieter during the weekends but it was nice to just enjoy the beautiful skies for once without seeing groups of people scurrying to class all the time. I pulled out my Plato texts and started brainstorming for my essay on Plato's critique on democracy. After jotting down a few notes and potential quotes/claims that I would use in my essay, my floor mate, Monica and I headed down to RPCC to eat.
