A Day in the Life: Spring Edition
8:30 AM - 11:30 AM
I wake up and rush to Novack Café to grab a hot vanilla latte—a go-to caffeine drink to wake me up for my 9L. My chemistry class is at 8:50, so I need to be both mentally and physically awake to handle and absorb the content. Immediately after my chemistry class, my cell biology course follows, which once again is very thinking-heavy. It's a very relaxing walk from the center of campus to the Life Sciences Center (about a 15-minute walk), and I really enjoy the greenery that leads up the building!
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
It is a very relaxing day with very warm weather! My friends and I decide to order take-out food from Sushiya, a Korean cuisine restaurant, and sit on the Green to enjoy it. It's been quite a while since we were able to sit and enjoy this warm weather since winter term, so it is a very rewarding time for me.
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
This is a Monday, which is when I have my chemistry lab. This week's content is on the emission spectrum of a hydrogen atom. We observe the different colors of visible light according to different wavelengths.
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Today, I decide to spend time on FFB (first-floor Berry) in Baker-Berry Library. This space is for collaboration, socializing, and studying all at the same time, so I tend to crank out studying sessions here with my friends. I have some lab analyses for biology and chemistry as well as problem sets to complete for statistics!
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
My friends and I want a switch of locations, so we move to Dartmouth's Fairchild building, which is where most of the physics and astronomy courses are held. There is a specific and unique ambience to the study areas here, as the building has its overall light dimmed and has a futuristic feel.
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
My work ends quite early, so I decide to head back home and rest!
