Between my TA meeting and my anthropology recitation I usually have about a half hour break to myself. In previous weeks, this time has been occupied with last minute cramming for the quizzes that are so popular in my recitation. This week, however, my day was quiz free! I spent that time by the pond on one end of campus, one of my new favorite spots. It is filled with koi of all different colors and cute little turtles that sun themselves and occasionally swim around. I love watching them swim around together, so peaceful.
