Hope College is such a great place! But, no matter how great a place is, there’s just something about going home. And that’s why I love Fall Break. It [fall break] comes at just the perfect time. Classes have become more challenging, homework/assignments have become longer and longer, and there’s a test to study for almost every week. It’s so nice to be able to go home, see family and friends, and just relax.
This fall break, my mom and I were busy doing things all around the Dallas area. We tried new restaurants, ate at old favorites, saw some great friends, did a little shopping, started a Christmas craft, and celebrated having our puppy, Maizey Jane, for one year.
One of my favorite things about this fall break was spending time with so many great people back home. I love going out for long dinners, and catching up on life. It’s such a nice feeling to actually be with the people that you’re with, instead of worrying about homework, papers, and tests.
Break is now over, and I’m back in the swing of things – homework, cooking for myself, TV shows with housemates, and working. While I’m missing break, it’s great to have a community at Hope that is so encouraging, and fun to be around.
That’s all for this week! Make sure to check out the blog next week. I’ll be writing about ArtPrize 2014, and keeping y’all updated on Hope College’s Homecoming Weekend! Go Hope!
