In yesterday’s class session, the first book group shared their presentation and it was interesting to see how they critiqued the book even though it was a best seller. I felt that they took a lot of time to delve into the book and truly analyze it for what it was. We also got into our committees for the senior dances, and I am in the activities committee. We plan to bring in either the Ballroom Dance Club or Swing Dance Club to do a performance and maybe teach a small section of a simple song, or do line dancing with us teaching the moves instead. After that, we then met up in our groups for the NAP’s. My group was having a difficult time figuring out a time to go to the neighborhood, since I am going home this weekend and Jackie is going home the weekend after. The weekdays do not work either, but we decided to go two separate times to accommodate for whoever cannot make the other time. Those who did not present the book presented their oral history projects, and it was eye-opening to see how every EP lived such intense lives with stories that taught life lessons. At the end of class, two representatives from the new student organization Get a Cane presented to us. I loved the idea of what they do and I thought it was extremely thoughtful for them to give medical devices to those in need. They inspired me to try to do more to give back to the community.
