Today was a special day. Not only was it the 4th of July, the birth of our nation, it was also Mark and Reneta's anniversary. Independence day was of lesser importance to me this year because we still had class. Nonetheless, it still was a national holiday. However, since our professors were celebrating their 14th anniversary, they seemed to be in a very happy mood. The class felt more enjoyable because of both the anniversary and the holiday.
As class started, Mark had a decoy presentation that had their wedding song on one of he slides. It said "I love you" and then he played their wedding song. It was a happy moment in our class but after he music was done, it was back to business. Reneta began The day with a detailed discussion about the CHESS financial papers and then, we learned how to calculate the statistics.
After finishing up Reneta lecture, we went to lunch. Since our class was the only class on the fourth of July, trillium hall, where we usually go eat lunch, was not open. Thankfully, our professors brought every one pizza and subs. It was better than I thought it would be. I expected something like cafeteria pizza, but it was actually very tasty. He subs weren't on subway standards, but enjoyable nonetheless. At the cafe where we all stayed for lunch, our TAs surprised Mark and Reneta with an anniversary card and balloons and a picture of the two. We applauded to them after they received their gifts.
We finished off our class with the same routine. Our class was split and Reneta talked to us about the business memo, and Mark finished class off with a Microsoft Excel overview. We left today half an hour earlier and all that was needed to do was going to office hours.
Office hours went by fast, because we had something due at the end of it. This finished our rather dull Independence Day. I was envious of the people that were relaxing outside, especially the El Cerrito group, who went to Buttermilk Falls.
