Today was final exams day which meant that I was proctoring two exams. And since the schedule was actually overlapping, Donna, the department secretary came to proctor my first exam when I had to leave. In the morning, a couple of students came to review with me and I graded some more of their papers. I like grading research papers much more since most are writing on different topics and I don’t have to read the same thing over and over again.

And I got to be very social today. I went to lunch with Abena and in the evening I was invited to Prof. S’s house since Abena is leaving for another school so Prof. S. hosted a goodbye dinner. Yesterday, Papa and I stopped by the Russian store and I got kvas (a non-alcoholic drink that is made from bread and is carbonized) and some Russian desert. Prof. S’s house was very lovely – a giant kitchen and very open layout. We had a fresh bread, salad, roasted eggplant and vegetarian lasagna and lots of desert. It was a really fun evening and it was good to spend time with everyone outside the school. (and even Prof S’s dog didn’t bother me – he was not the barking type and I didn’t really get nervous about it – progress.)

I also finally emailed the rabbi from that internet list. We’ll see if he responds. I don’t like cold emailing people but it is not like I know any religious figures.
