I apologize for not blogging in the previous days. An unfortunate event occurred on Friday evening in which I had misplaced my Brown ID. I didn't notice until I got back to my building from dinner. I searched every single pocket in my backpack and still couldn't find it after ten minutes. Did I forget to mention that the concrete floors outside were flooding with rainwater, the sky was pouring, the weather was hot an humid, there were distant sounds of rumbling thunder, and that shots of lightning were bombarding me every second? Luckily, one of my floor-mates came down and opened the door for me.
I'll basically be posting the blogs from Friday - Sunday in one whole blog. I'll try to make them seem as interesting and short as possible. So please, bear with me.

I mostly stayed in my dorm for the rest of the day starting on my new homework assignment and catching up on some rest. The rest of the day was mostly just me stressing over my Brown ID and my laptop.

Ying and I met up with Ms. Kaplan at Starbucks after breakfast. She came over to help me with my laptop and ID problems. We discovered that the laptop couldn't be fixed here, and I had already found my ID. So instead, Ying and I decided to take her downtown to see one of the events that I found online. Unfortunately, the time online was wrong and the show wouldn't start for another 5 hours. Since we were already here, we decided to go to Macy's. I bought myself a blazer for the dinner at Boston we'd be going to a few days prior to our return back to California. I had left my suit jacket at home and it would've been to much of a hassle to have that shipped over to me. On our way from the mall to the car, I also saw Professor Coleman. We talked for a while (since we walked in the same direction) and got him introduced to Ms. Kaplan.

[Sunday]The highlight of Sunday was our trip to the RISD museum. Nick and Emily were busy doing homework, so Ying-An, Kelly, Tayler, and I went to RISD with Ms. Kaplan. RISD was full of wonderful works of art and antiques, all lined up on their little glass shelves. We saw a giant Buddha and a hall of paintings. My favorite part within the whole museum had to have been the gift shop. It wasn't the shopping itself that was impressive. Rather, it was the fact that all the products sold in that gift shop were made by students at RISD museum. It was insane. They had amazingly designed ties, rainbow makers, and even toy bug robots. I've had such a great weekend exploring Providence. From historical streets to the creative minds of the students, I've grown to love Providence so much. I don't think I want these two weeks to pass by so quickly anymore....
