It has taken me this long–this long my friends–to discover that Vanderbilt’s Recreational Center has free classes almost every day! I was under the impression that you had to sign up and pay a fee. Please, do not wait like I did! Check out our Recreational Center Schedule, whether you are an incoming freshman or an old-timer. You can take classes such as Advanced Yoga, Cardio or Zumba. Sometimes…okay…I won’t lie…very often…I lose motivation and it is so helpful to have an instructor there encouraging you. I took a class from 10-11 on Saturday morning, which was nice because it didn’t impose on my casual weekend sleep-in.
If this didn’t brighten my day, the weather certainly has! Vanderbilt’s springs are beautiful, so my friend and I took a trip down to Centennial Park to scope out the duck situation. Armed with a small packet of dried Panera bread, I thought the birds would come flocking, but it seems like everyone had a similar idea and brought some more palatable snacks. Eventually, we found some pigeons that were not very picky and accepted our desiccated bread.
To finish a splendid Saturday, I got some Jeni’s ice cream at Hot ‘n Cold. This, whether you are only visiting for a day, needs to be tried! Absinthe and Meringues? Goat Cheese and Red Cherries? Sweet Potato with Torched Marshmallows? Honestly, you need to try it!
