Big Dinosaurs and Beautiful Grass

Today was the day I truly slept in - I woke up at 11 am! After getting dressed and getting breakfast, I went with Aurea, Morvarid, Tomi, Lucas, and Brittany on an RA trip to the American Museum of Natural History. The museum was absolutely fascinating - every exhibit had fossils and explanations of different vertebrae, mammals in continents such as Asia and Africa, and of native peoples. I had a great time there. After spending time at the museum, the six of us had a small picnic in Central Park and then went back home. For dinner, Brittany, Tomi, Aurea, Morvarid, one of Morvarid's TAs, and I went to Ruby Foo's, an Asian restaurant. It's been a fun weekend, but I'm excited to go back to class tomorrow and discuss more political science.
