3 Days Left

Hey folks! Today marks the day of when all countdowns begin. As of today, there are only 9 days of class left. And my title states “3 Days Left” because there are 3 more days until THANKSGIVING! So after Thanksgiving Break, there is one week of class left, followed by exams. WHAT? And as of today, there are 30 days left until Christmas! Now, it really feels like Christmas because there is snow on the ground. It’s going to be a white winter folks! So, I’m going to try to post everyday until break. It will build up the excitement and I just have so much to talk about!

This past weekend, I went home. It was the first time I’ve been back since Fall Break, so it was a decent amount of time. I was just so ready to get out of school. My family celebrated Thanksgiving last weekend, because we have exciting plans for actual Thanksgiving Break (more to come!). For the first time in a long time, I actually got a lot of my homework done at home. This usually never happens because I am so distracted by my family because there is always something to do in TC! The best part of being home for the weekend was the intense SNOW!

Lake Effect Snow!
This is just some lake effect.

Yes, SNOW! Traverse City, as well as most of Northern Michigan was under a lake effect snow warning. From Friday night until Sunday morning, we were slammed with so much beautiful snow. Although I thought I was going to die while driving, I felt as if I was driving through Narnia! But with snow, comes work. The shovels were brought out and our snowblower was taken out of hibernation as well. Clearing the snow is a pain, but worth it because we have to get out of our driveway somehow!

Anyway, back to reality. These last 3 days are going to rough, but in the end, it is going to be worth it. There are simply too many assignments that need to be turned in! But my goal is to finish all of them, and as of now, I am in great shape, so I won’t have any homework during break! Ok, that’s all for now!
