Ended up getting home much later than I planned last night, so had no time to update this entry in a timely manner.
The Holocaust event at my school was pretty great, with a Buchenwald survivor (Robbie Waisman) and a US soldier (Leo Hymas) telling their stories. The best part was being asked to "volunteer" to help hold up some flags during Hymas' talk! Me and a young man held up a Nazi banner he got from Germany, and then his US flag. It was awesome, being able to touch items from history! And I did get a bit teary-eyed during the whole event... Afterwards, I saw Jurassic Park 3D with my mother and one of her coworkers, and we ended up seeing a later showing. But it was quite cool! It was the first time me or my mom had seen it in theaters, and the 3D was pretty awesome! It's also one of my favorite movies, so I thoroughly enjoyed it (just like when I saw the Indiana Jones marathon in theaters last year). So...that's a recap of the events from yesterday!
So, it's been a week since Spring Quarter began and I haven't done anything on dA, so...I should say a few things about this week. I am enjoying my classes this quarter! My professors are interesting and I really like the content. The Holocaust class in particular. It's everything that interests me and I hope I get motivated to work on ASaHM
again. So, that's all that's really been happening this week.
Also, this afternoon I will be going out and doing some things that I will update about when I get back! There's an event at my university, free and open to the public, that will feature a US soldier involved in the liberation of Buchenwald and a survivor of Buchenwald telling their stories for Holocaust Memorial Day! If I write a one-page paper about the event, I will get extra-credit for my Holocaust class. Afterwards, I am going to see Jurassic Park 3D. When I get back, I will update this journal with all the details!
