New Adventures

As my senior year at Hope is coming to a close, I never thought that I would find new things to do at Hope. Basically, my thought process was that I would spend the last 40 days of college doing the same things over and over again. But, that’s not what’s happened! In the past couple weeks I’ve had the opportunity to do so many new and fun things, and I want to share them with you!

Lake Michigan

In my time at Hope I had never visited Lake Michigan when it was frozen over. But just a few weekends ago, I went with my friend, and fellow blogger Leslie, to watch the sunset over the lake. The lake was so beautiful – definitely a trip worth taking if you decide to attend Hope.

Hope Baseball Games

Before Tuesday, I had never been to a Hope baseball game. After today, I’ve been to three. Like any sporting event at college, it’s fun to attend games that your friends are playing in. And today, it was even more fun to be at the game since Hope beat Calvin.

Taco Bell

Throughout my time in college, I always knew that I liked Taco Bell; however, over the past couple weeks, Taco Bell has become a much needed study break with friends. Once or twice a week, I head over to Taco Bell with two of my friends, and we order “three crunch wraps supreme – no tomatoes”. I really can’t explain it, but there’s just something about late nights at college and Taco Bell that go hand-in-hand.

Ultimate Frisbee

I’ve never played Ultimate Frisbee, but on Monday I have my first game. I’m pretty excited to be the “team mom” and bring snacks to every game – and eventually catch a touchdown (or goal… not sure what it’s called).

All in all, my last semester at Hope College has been tons of fun! And, I look forward to seeing what the last 37 days have to hold!
