Last weekend us Butler interns went on a tour of D.C. and one of the first stops we made was to the Iwo Jima memorial. It is right next to the Arlington National Cemetary and it honors all of our nation’s marines. One of the cool aspects of the memorial is that when you walk around it, it appears as though the soldiers are lifting the flag upright.
From the memorial you can see the U.S. Capitol Building and the Washington Monument. It’s definitely a beautiful sight to see. Also near the monument are other monuments from other countries thanking the United States for their involvement in World War 2. One includes a really cool monument donated by The Netherlands to the U.S.
There are so many other awesome monuments in the city and I want to take the opportunity to try to see most of them! Hopefully I can find the time!
This morning I was woken up by my RA who informed me that everyone in the building had to head to the basement because of a tornado watch! It was scary at first but I had never been under a tornado watch before so it was exciting nonetheless!
I had purchased the Taylor Swift CD the night before so this gave me the chance to listen to it! It was an ok album. I think Taylor Swift is still her best album to date. I’m more of a hardcore Lady Gaga fan so I’m more partial to mainstream pop music even though I love country as well.
After the tornado warning expired I was happy to hear that my Chemistry class was canceled! I still had to go to three other classes but it still made my day (Even though I love Chemistry!).
Tonight I’m going to a seminar at Clowes Hall about the future of Islam in America. I feel as though it will be a very informative talk and hopefully I can learn something about Islam from it!
That’s all for today! The random song of the day today is my favorite song from Taylor Swift’s new album
Random Song of the Day: “Innocent” by Taylor Swift.
