In class today, my teacher had my class organize ourselves into groups, and make a presentation on 6 of the cases that we had for reading last night. Hearing cases like Gibbons v. Ogden being explained by a fellow classmate helped me to truly develop a firm understanding on the cases. In the afternoon session, my teacher had us play Constitutional Jeopardy, basically a Con-Law modified version of Jeopardy. The class was split into three different teams, and I felt through this "team" system I was able to unite with a group of people I had never talked to before. In between questions, I became involved in a debate on if the term "So-Flo" was actually used by people around the world. The questions in the Jeopardy game really made me think about the cases in a different way and truly analyze them for what they are.

After class, I returned to my dorm and took a bit of a break from the outside world. At around 5:30, I met up with Izabel, Mark, and Deborah, and we got some dinner and took a quick trip to Times Square for some souvenirs. I feel that I am really becoming accustomed to taking the subway now.
On the way home, we stopped for a quick yogurt-fix from Pinkberry, and walked back to our dorm buildings and called it a night. When I arrived, my RA had Insomnia Cookies out in the lobby for our suite bonding. After indulging three (maybe four or five...I forget) cookies, I headed back to my room, took a shower, and relaxed.

I am super excited to go to sleep tonight, for tomorrow morning brings exciting adventures with Ms. Thrift and the gang. New York get ready for us!
