Signing off from Open Eye cafe with, once again, Phillippa Owens '19!! (I have other friends, I swear.) Phillippa is studying intensely for a computer science exam while I take creepy pictures of her and think about starting my homework. It's working pretty well for both of us. So, yes, good night and thanks for sharing my day with me!! Go heels, gthd, gdtbath, etc. #TakeoverTuesday Photo by: Annie Kiyonaga '19

Colby Kirkpatrick '19 refused to go to Yopo, a Chapel Hill INSTITUTION, and instead got a milkshake from Ben&Jerry's. Phillippa Owens '19 and I are appalled. We're eating with him out of pity, not real friendship. #TakeoverTuesday Photo by: Annie Kiyonaga '19

I volunteer every Tuesday at Student U, an education non-profit organization in Durham. Student U partners with students throughout middle and high school, providing them with tutors (like me) and advocating for them within the school system to, ultimately, increase their chances of going to college. Today, Tahir, one of my students, drew this portrait of half of my face 😎#TakeoverTuesday Photo by: Annie Kiyonaga '19

My third class -- an English class on the 19th and 20th century British novel -- got cancelled, so I have an unexpected lunch break. Scott Diekema '19 appears to have ordered an entire pizza for himself. Very ambitious. #TakeoverTuesday Photo by: Annie Kiyonaga '19

In my English class this morning, we discussed Elizabeth Barrett Browning's conception of an artist: "...what then, / Unless the artist keep up open roads / Betwixt the seen and unseen, -- bursting through / The best of your conventions with his best / The unspeakable, imaginable best." It seems fitting that I'm now in Hanes Art Center for my second class, an art history class on the pre-Hispanic art of Mesoamerica. #TakeoverTuesday Photo by: Annie Kiyonaga '19

Goooood morning, Morehead-Cain Instagram followers!! I'm Annie Kiyonaga, a sophomore from Chevy Chase, Md studying English and art history. Here's a picture of me in my beautiful dorm with an aggressively strong cup of coffee to wake me up for my 9:30 English class, taken while my beloved roommate, fellow scholar Phillippa Owens '19, sleeps approx. 10 feet away from me. #TakeoverTuesday Photo by: Annie Kiyonaga '19
