2 Days Left

The anticipation, it’s just getting out of control. We’ve made it so far, but I still feel like its so far away. But it’s going to be okay when I wake up, because it will be Wednesday. Thanksgiving Break, freedom, but only for 4 days. It’s definitely better than nothing though. After break, there is going to be so much going on. It’s going to hectic, I’m going to get stressed, excited, nervous, anxious, and sleepy. It’s just going to be one pot of mixed emotions! After break, I figure out if I get accepted to the Vienna May Term, I have my SAC Director interview, I have my final assignments to turn in, then it’s time to get locked in the library and just S-T-U-D-Y, for exams. Then it’s actual freedom. A BREAK WITH NO HOMEWORK!

Anyways, today, I finished all of my assignments (with the exception of 1) for Thanksgiving Break and after. I feel so accomplished. I managed my time wisely and made good use of it. I am proud of myself to say the least. Because I accomplished such a huge task, I am rewarding myself during break with Black Friday shopping. It sounds weird, but it just makes sense.

New topic: Today, Hope College launched its first annual tree lighting near President Knapp’s house. What a great tradition. 50 years down the road, I’ll be able to say, “I was at the first lighting!” It was a great event to bring the student body together. More than 800 students showed up, COOL! The tree was lit, we sang carols, we had candles, and great food. Many said that this was weird as it wasn’t Thanksgiving yet. I say it’s totally appropriate seeing as there is already snow on the ground. This event is going in the books. Seriously, what a cool idea. Here are two of my favorite pictures I took tonight. Take a peek!

Here are some of my favorite people ever.
Here is the lit tree with my candle. How cool!

Well, that’s all I have for you tonight. Tomorrow will mark my last post until Thanksgiving Break! Stay tuned for more! If you haven’t already, follow me on twitter at @HopeMarvin15. God bless!
