We finished reading Mark Bekoff’s Rewilding Our Hearts for Jay’s class and got to work on our independent research. We picked up where we left offSaturday by watching Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix that evening.

Today was a free day to work on our independent research papers. Lots of people conducted interviews, in town or over the phone, while others dug deep into literature research. Tuesday night the group reunited for a delicious chili dinner.

We had our last official class period this morning, where we summarized what we’ve learned through the semester and discussed what stuck with us the most. We continued working on our assignments, and the Harry Potter movie saga continued this evening with Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

We enjoyed a break from our hard work on our research papers to celebrate Arden’s birthday at Splash Center! After a couple hours of water slides, hot tubs and bouncy castles, we got back to work on our reports. We took another evening break for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part One.

We have officially (finally) wrapped up academics! Throughout the day, we turned in our research papers and received our weekend dinner stipends. Many of us took to the streets to celebrate the conclusion of the semester with some tasty food!

The group went on a last trip to the farmer’s market in the morning and started packing for the Marlborough sounds trip. Tonight we’ll be finishing up our Harry Potter marathon and getting psyched for our 42 kilometer bike ride on Monday!
Have a good day!
