So after last night, my Hope College experience is complete. I finally won an IM t-shirt. At the beginning of the year (last fall), I said that I couldn’t graduate without a shirt. Thank goodness I won one – I’m thinking my parents wouldn’t really want me to be coming back for a 6th year…
This semester I learned how to play ultimate frisbee and had a blast. Every Monday and Wednesday I would look forward to 6:30 PM when I got to meet up with the team to play. It was fun playing on the football field – I have to say, turf is pretty nice. And last night, for the final game, not only did we play on the football field, but we also got to play under the lights – that just made the whole experience even better.
And while we’re on the topic of last night being a “cool” experience, I’ll just go go ahead and say that it was cool because we won the shirt, but it was also snowing… Only in Michigan does it snow at the end of April.
So here’s my advice to you – if you’re coming to Hope, you should learn how to throw a frisbee. Playing ultimate is tons of fun, and you get to make great friends along the way. Who doesn’t want to have fun and make friends??
