Monday I was in my dance and movement class and watercolor class for most of the day. On my way to work at the Writing Center, I made a pit-stop at the TRIO house to enjoy some chocolate ice cream! Finally, in the evening nursing research paper writing service, I had so much fun with my girls talking about topics related to Valentines Day! You, loyal reader, should listen on Mondays @ 9 p.m.!
Tuesday I met with my advisor to discuss my courses for Spring Term. Then, later in the evening, I met with my assigned group to discuss a manifesto project we had for our class, “Black Revolution on Campus.”
Wednesday I had a very busy day! After a https://www.purdueglobal.edu/ morning of feeling sick and nauseous, I managed to attend a most of my class, and also a lecture series by Professor Daniel Black from Morehouse College and Clark Atlanta University. Organized by Dr. John Thabiti Willis, a professor of History here at Carleton, and a Carleton student, the event series, titled “Slavery, Sexuality and Segregation,” was so engaging. I attended an early morning lecture, during which Dr. Black discussed his novel, “The Coming,” a unique account that gives centrality to the voices of African ancestors of the Middle Passage. In the evening, I spoke with Dr. Black in the History department lounge, and I also attended dinners, at which Dr. Black discussed gender, sexuality, and race in the context of Carleton.
Thursday I attended a fellowship lunch for first-year students. I learned of the value of fellowships, and gained some materials to consider what I am interested in researching. Later, I conducted an interview with a professor for an article I am writing to be featured in the Carletonian.
Friday I attended convocation, at which Daryl Davis spoke about insights gained through interacting with the Klu Klux Klan. After work, I interviewed a student for my article. Then, I grabbed some ice cream and talked through my interest in sociology and anthropology in the SOAN lounge with students. Later, I paid a visit to the arts studio at the Weitz Center for Creativity.
Annnnnnnnndddddd, that’s all folks. Come back next week! *jazz hands*

She enjoys thriller novels, compulsive online shopping, and skipping the “It” movie advertisements when they come on. Jelilat also enjoys taking #OutfitofTheDay pics, spending time with people with very loud laughs, and learning more about her fellow peers’ experiences, interests, and perspectives.
