Things I Learned This Week

Despite the fact that the week isn’t quite over yet, I feel like it’s a good time to reflect on what I’ve learned thus far:

  1. Egg white omelets are delicious. I decided to try egg whites instead of my usual scrambled eggs for breakfast this morning and it was absolutely amazing. If there is interest, I’ll post the recipe (it’s super easy!)
  2. That being said, I love to cook. After pinning countless recipes on Pinterest, I decided to start making some of them and they have been so good! (BBQ Chicken Quesadillas, Egg White Omelet). I really enjoy making tasty, healthy foods.
  3. The Cold War is fascinating. Our public policy class has been centered around the repurposing of the plant, which the Voinovich School has been contracted to assist with. Out class has been tasked with coming up with policy background information (my group is working on the economic development portion). At the plant we toured the facility and learned the history of the plant. As a history lover, I really enjoyed learning more about the Cold War-era happenings and how the plant adjusted once it was over. It really gave me a different perspective on the project, as well as a new energy for learning more about it.
  4. Senator Voinovich is one of my favorite politicians. Yesterday, Senator Voinovich himself visited my organization theory class to talk with us about public-private partnerships. During his time as mayor of Cleveland, he utilized public-private partnerships to makeover the city’s infrastructure. It was great to hear how it worked from the person who engineered it. I definitely suggest you check out the George Voinovich Archives oh the OU Library website.

Have a great weekend!
