Day 8 at Putney

Standard

Today was pretty relaxed. On Sundays there’s not really much to do than to catch up on homework. During the early hours I worked on my Spanish essay. There aren’t many guidelines to my paper, I just have to write about something that interests. I also completed my outline for history, which was simply answering if political animals are destructive or not. After I finished that, my friend and I took the shuttle out to putney, and we went to the putney co-op and the G-Store to get dorm snacks. We were in putney for about two hours, and it was a lot of fun. We then came back and laid around all day. A lot of people were extremely tired because of Snowball, so the majority of the students were sleeping all day.

Day 7 at Putney

Standard

Today was really nice. We had a half day so I had History then Spanish. I Have to write an outline for history and a paper for Spanish in the next week. Yikes! I’m sure I’ll survive though. The rest of the day it was rather relaxed. We all just spent time in the dorm listening to music and watching movies. Then I went to a basketball game with some of my roommates. It was Putney against Vermont Academy and it was a really good! We won in the end and everyone was cheering and having a great time. Then we went back to the dorm because around the time we returned we had to get ready for snowball. Snowball is this formal dinner/dance that happens every year. The teachers would serve us dinner, and then we would go to the dance. This year however, was a little different from others that happened. They had a live band that played swing and waltz music, and they usually have music playing from a computer. I thought it was really cute though. Unfortunately, I felt sick in the middle of it so I went back to my dorm to get some rest. Although from what I did experience , I enjoyed it a lot !

Day 6 at Putney

Standard

Today was the best day so far! I started out the morning with music intensive. Cailan wasn’t there so it was pretty much a free period. Then we had assembly/advisory. Advisory was a lot of fun, because the advisor was super energetic and hilarious. Afterwards, I had history of the Modern world. We practically had a study hall, because we did our homework in class. After that, I had Spanish which was really fun. I have come to realize that Spanish 5 is like an hour long dialogue, and I really like it. Then I had farm which was really interesting. Today I collected eggs and cleaned them, I also had to hitch cows to their feeding station which was a little difficult, but I got the hang of it after a while. Then after farm, I had the evening to look forward to. After dinner we all got little firework sparklers, and we were running around the courtyard with them, and afterwards, there was a big firework show, and it was really beautiful. Then for my evening activity I went to hip-hop classes with my a few of my roommates, and that was very interesting. It was a lot of fun though. Today, I became a lot closer with people in my classes, and in my dorm, and its great! I can’t wait for snowball tomorrow c; 

Day 5 at Putney

Today was so amazing! this morning, after first period, there was something called “sing” where everyone in the whole school got together and sang a bunch of songs from a book. It was so cool, and everyone was so energetic, and excited, and there were so many good vibes. After sing, there was a conference block, where I went to go cut up my negatives and work on some photos for photography class. That was fun, and my pictures came out nice! Today I also had my first yoga class! It was the most soothing, tranquil experience I’ve ever had. It was amazing, I loved it! We listened to music the whole time, and we stretched and worked on balance, and it was great. Later tonight we celebrated the Chinese New Year, by eating chinese food, watching a dragon dance, and hearing the kids who take chinese sing a song. It was extremely beautiful and so much fun. After dinner, I was off to the dark room again, to develope more photos. I only developed two photos because there was a problem with my negatives. Today was such a busy day, but it was so much fun, I’m not even tired! I can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow.
