This evening I was able to attend the Chapel Hill Zen Center with several classmates for a session of za zen meditation. This was my first real experience, and it really was incredible! Their services are open to the public every week on Tuesdays at 7pm and Sundays at 9am. #TakeoverTuesday | Photo by Ivan Boyers ‘20

On days like these I love to study or read on the porch. It seems the love I’ve received from followers has cleared the sky! ☁️➡️🌤 It has been a fairly long day, though, so with my energy fading, I turned to trusty ol’ Joe for a cup of the good stuff. On a serious note, I think we all need to take a second and appreciate this mug. That is all. 🐶 #TakeoverTuesday #pugs&kisses | Photos by Ivan Boyers ‘20

I have to do a midday appreciate post for my team from last summer - Civic Collaboration Team Baltimore! This is a special post because it is the day of birth of Philip Smart ‘20!!! 🎁🎉Phil spent the summer with me in Baltimore, and he and the rest of the crew made my time unforgettable. The summer allowed me to grow as a problem solver and team member, but it also gave me opportunities to have new experiences with this amazing group of scholars. We especially loved meeting the horses on our tour of a racing farm owned by the company we worked with for much of the summer! 🐎♦️♦️♦️🐎#sagamoreracing #CivicCollaboration #TakeoverTuesday | Photos by Ivan Boyers ‘20

My first class on Tuesday is RELI 542H: Religion and the Counterculture with Prof. Ariel. This course is incredibly intriguing, and today we watched a documentary about Chongyam Trungpa. He was a charismatic leader that brought Tibetan Buddhism to the U.S. in the 1960s. I recommend this class to anyone, regardless of major! Check out fellow scholar Lily Zay ‘20 (back left) being a respectful student and not taking out her phone for a picture! #iaskedmyprofessoripromisemom | Photo by Ivan Boyers ‘20 | #TakeoverTuesday

A horrifying image - Davis Library before 9:00am. I shuttered at the idea of productivity so early in the morn’. Luckily, it was for a meeting regarding this upcoming SEP summer! I met with a research expert at the ODUM institute to discuss my potential plans for an Independent Research summer, regarding the intersection of music and social justice leadership. Independent research gives scholars an amazing opportunity to explore focused topics with immense freedom to personalize their work. 📚📖| Photo by Ivan Boyers ‘20 | #TakeoverTuesday

Good morning! ☀️ My name is Ivan Boyers. I am a sophomore majoring in political science, and I’ll be taking you through my day on this eerily foggy Tuesday! Here’s a pic of me with a fairly dilapidated snowperson from earlier this semester, so we can reminisce on the #snowweek here at Chapel Hill. I can’t wait to bring y’all through my day!#TakeoverTuesday | Photo by Ivan Boyers ‘20 ❄️☃️❄️
