Since the majority of teams were still working on their reports, my team became slightly paranoid, so we reread our report and added some details. Printing the final copy felt so satisfying. It gave us the feeling of joy. We were finally holding a physical copy of our final assignment. Once we turned it in, we had to leave so that other teams could finish. My team chatted a bit in the hall with the ice-pops we originally bought for our service project. There were over a hundred, so everyone grabbed some to calm down.

Irene and I walked to Trillium for our last lunch together. Neither of us could believe that we were officially done with the class. It was extremely vigorous, but we couldn't process the thought that we wouldn't see those 80 people anymore. It was weird to think we wouldn't eat dining hall food anymore or the fact that we wouldn't walk up to Statler every morning. We later met up with Bhavesh and visited the student store.
Before dinner, the ILC group met up with Mr. Chan-Law to discuss check-outs, graduation ceremonies, and flights. We're scheduled to arrive back in California at 10PM, but our day starts at 7AM. I ate dinner with Irene and her roommate YoungJi, who is from Chicago! We were so tired of RPCC food and the hall was packed with people from sports camps.
As a showcase of Summer College Students' talent, the RCAs hosted a "Cornell's Got Talent" Students from all around the world sang, danced and played instruments. The songs ranged from operas to musicals and rap. They were also sang in Mandarin, English, and Japanese! Approximately 30 students performed. My favorite was a song named "The Girl in 14G" It was about a girl who had loud, singing hall mates. Each student sang differently, so she constantly changed her voice to portray each character. Our very own Tamilyn also sang! I'm envious of the courage these students had to go up and perform. I'm fine with making a speech or presentation, but I could never sing or play an instrument in front of a crowd by myself.
