For some reason, I felt a lot of love from Brown today.
I sensed love from my friends. Today I woke up at 8 o'clock, which is pretty late for our meeting time for breakfast. I got ready as fast as I could but still received a ton of messages from Stephanie, Megan and Brandon. They asked what happened to me and where was I. I could tell that they were worried about me just because I slept-in. After they understood my situation, they immediately sent me their location and expected me to go meet them so we could have breakfast together. I really appreciated what they did for me this morning. They did not let me feel left out because even going to breakfast everyday became a part of routine. I can't imagine how I am going to spend my mornings without everyone when I get back.
I also like the cheeriness from my professor. Something was wrong with my short experiment today. I tried 3 times and I kept getting the non-ideal results. Ms. Hall noticed my problem and went over the whole procedure with me. Later in the day, she also helped me with my homework and brainstormed with me for my final independent project. I am very thankful that I have such a responsible instructor.
I even received attention from a passer-by. After coming out of class, I was really tired from working and sweating under the sun so I was walking very slow. One girl (looked like a formal Brown student) walked up to me and asked if everything was alright with me. I was surprised that even a stranger cares about me. Although this has been a tough day in terms of heat torture, I still had a great day with all the love and care I received.
