Today was actually a cool day that I can say, yeah, that's a pretty cool story.
- Visited the Morris Arboretum in the morning - the University owns this place. Enjoyed the sunshine and the nature.
- A couple of guys started talking to us on the bus back. We ended up getting lunch/dinner with a bunch of people (who they'd also just met), then jamming with violin, electric guitar and ukelele, then going to the "Night Market" at Rodin Rooftop lounge with amazing performances by several cultural dance and arts groups. Totally random but awesome turn of events!!
- Did my grocery shopping and my friend helped me to carry stuff back, which helped a lot.
What did I learn?
- People at Penn respect culture a lot. Also, we have some amazing dance groups here, who really love to dance, put their hearts, intensity and energy into it, and are amazingly supportive of their team-mates. And everyone respects that.
- Good things happen when you clear your schedule and go with the flow. Just say yes!
- Writing this Buddhist paper brings up experiences that relate to Buddhist teachings. Like, dukkah. Oh my god, I feel so much unsatisfactoriness towards this paper at the moment. Just, MRAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. (my reaction every time I look at it). MRAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
