The Essay...

The final drafts of our Plato essays are due tomorrow morning...meaning my whole day today was devoted to the essay.

I went to class, learned about Marx in lecture, talked about Marx in discussion, (to show that I learned something: Marx believed that capitalism would inevitably fall to communism due to the fact that the proletariat made up the majority of a capitalist society and would therefore have the power and will, as the weakest links of the community, to rebel) and then I was off to the library to start my revisions.
I went to a different library than usual, however. This place is called Uris Library. Admittedly, it's a bit difficult to get a picture of the place that does it justice, but I swear it is one of the most beautiful buildings on campus.

From the couch that I decided to lounge at while studying, this was my view...

It started to rain about two minutes later, so the sky doesn't look very nice, but you can see Cayuga Lake in the background and the trees and mountains just made it a peaceful area to work.

Also, if i was to turn around and actually look into the library, this is what I would see...

Probably the most books I've ever seen in my life. And maybe about 6 other people in the room. This may be the most peaceful/quiet place I've ever been in. I felt like I was disturbing the ambiance just with the sound of my backpack zipper.

I finished my introduction and went to see my TA, just to make sure that the points that I had given were direct and answered the question correctly. He approved it and again attempted to map out my paper. I've been working on it all day since, and I am really hoping to finish by tomorrow. I'm making A LOT of changes this time...

I'll tell you how it goes tomorrow though. Wish me luck! Good night!
