I went to breakfast and then to class, and because I was keeping my blood flowing walking and talking, I had no trouble staying awake. As we began to go into our Supreme Court cases, though, I began to have a lot of trouble staying awake (I mean, you can't blame me, I didn't sleep). I did stay awake, though, and I paid attention as well as I could to our cases surrounding the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. The cases were very interesting, it's just tought o stay awake having not slept the night before.
As soon as class ended, I sleepwalked back to my dorm, laid down and instantly fell asleep for a hour and 15 minutes nap. After I woke up, I made a few revisions that my dad had suggested to my paper and printed it, arriving to class just before 2 PM. Also, in case I hadn't made this point clear enough the first 10 times, I cannot describe to you the importance of my midday nap.
Our second class was a bit more interactive, and feeling refreshed from my nap, I participated in class discussion and my lack of energy seemed to completely disappear. We discussed some of the United States actions post-9/11, including the Patriot Act and some Supreme Court cases involving suspected terrorists being held as prisoners. After class ended, 13 of us from the class met up to go together out to dinner at a place called Max Bremmer's at Union Square. The place specializes in chocolate, and when people said we were going to dinner there I envisioned something like spaghetti with chocolate sauce, although thankfully, they served dinner items as well like BBQ pulled pork sandwiches. I had a fantastic time getting to know my classmates better; our class is already very discussion-based, but it is different talking to someone outside of a class setting. All of the kids, though, are super cool, and I can't believe this will be ending in only a few days!!!
