This morning Kyle and I woke up and walked down to breakfast together again right when it started around half past seven. Each morning it seemed as if the cafeteria area got more and more empty. We got to class and took a bus from the Mount Vernon campus to the Foggy Bottom campus and then took public bus transportation over to Union Station, which was our destination for the day. At Union Station we were given a couple of hours to wander around and write about or take pictures of whatever inspired us. I walked around with George for a while and then we decided to go and get smoothies from Jamba Juice. I purchased a delicious Piña Colada. While there we met up with Essi, Bri, and Carmen. When we left Jamba Juice George went off on his own and the girls and I went down to the bottom floor of Union Station to order crepes. I got a ham, cheese, olive, and tomato crepe that was very good and would be my replacement lunch for the day instead of eating the West Hall Dining food.
When we got back from Union Station, Carmen and I opted out of lunch and went to our room instead to eat left-overs from the other day, watch the Bachelorette, and take naps. In our afternoon class session we spent the majority of the time working on our various projects during studio work time. I finished up some lose ends on various projects and started a project involving my photography and Union Station. After class ended Essi, Carmen, and I headed over to the gym to get in a quick work-out before we headed over to the pool. Carmen and I did a warm-up mile and then a core workout that Reinaldo joined us for and then we finished with a quick cool-down mile. Once we were drenched with sweat we headed back to our dorms to throw on our bathing suits and head to the pool. Essi, Andrew, Matthew, Kyle, and I hung out at the pool for about forty-five minutes before we went back to the dorm to clean-up before dinner. We heard rumors about dinner being completely awful almost to the point of being inedible so Andrew, Kyle, Matthew, and I opted to order Chinese food. It was a worth-while investment.
Our Chinese food arrived just as the Vern Cup was starting. The Vern Cup was basically just trivia. I stayed for the beginning of it, but then I was not feeling great and needed some time away from people screaming, so I wandered down to the soccer fields. I hung out down there and played football with some of the guys until Alex began to organize his football game. Andrew came down to the fields to check on me and he walked me back to the dorm. He headed back to the Vern Cup for a little, but soon came back and we just relaxed and watched the movie Juno because it is one of my favorites, but he had never seen it before. The movie did not end until about ten thirty, but at that point I had about fifteen text messages from Kyle asking me where I was and what I was doing. I went upstairs and we hung out and talked until it was our curfew. Then Carmen and I watched some more of the Bachelorette before turning in for the night.
