You would think that since it's the weekend, I would probably decide to sleep in, right? Nope. I got up this morning at a jaw-dropping 4 AM and headed downstairs. Today was the planned sunrise viewing and breakfast in downtown Chicago.

After breakfast, we returned to the dorms. It was still around 9:30, so I did homework for a couple of hours before heading out again, this time with Tamika, Alana, and Alana's sister Claire. Unfortunately, neither Brandon nor Aisha could make it today. Our destination was the Museum Campus, a nice area next to Lake Michigan surrounded by three museums.

Today was one of the best days in the two weeks I've spent here, I have to say. There was not really a lot of worrying over class, and I got to learn a lot while taking a break. Tomorrow it's back to the torture of class...just kidding! I'm actually excited to get back into the interesting curriculum, even though the work might be difficult to understand. Also, I forgot to mention this, but it's been over two weeks since we've departed from San Francisco! It seems like it's been forever, but we're halfway there!
