The weather was not as sunny, and there were many clouds. Today I went to the Ratty! This is also known as the breakfast area, which conveniently is close to our dorm area. We went in search for our class in the Watson Institute, (there are a lot of names at Brown University).
During class, Kisa Takesue and the TA, Kim, helped everyone do a name game where we made an adjective or action with our name. Mine was "jumping Jessica"! It was really fun! Then we did a kind of game to interpret our definitions of leadership within simple and vague questions. One question was "Are you a yes or a no." Everyone started in the middle and then they go to either the left of the right side depending on your preference. Lunch then began and I was able to meet a new friend! When class resumed, there was a short game of twizzle, where everyone walks clockwise and there is one person saying instructions such as turn, go, stop, twizzle (jump in a circle). You also have a person trying to confuse you. If you got it wrong your out! This was just a little game to get us active again. Soon Gail Cohee, a director of the Sarah Doyle women's Center, came and gave us an awesome view on women in leadership positions. With a few minutes left, the class answered a couple of questions in the journal that Kisa gave out. We defined leadership and talked about who we admired as leaders.
Once class was over, a couple of us were able to go to the mall!!! It was really big and pretty!!! Along the way I saw a lot of really nice buildings!
When we got back there was a mandatory dorm meeting. The whole purpose was to find our type of leadership form, from North that was straightforward, South that was the caring one, East that was the creative one, and West which was the technical one. I chose East! We did a skit too! It was pretty funny to see! And now that it's over I have homework to complete!
