Hodgepodge of Things/SNOW DAY!

We are closing up on the third of week of this semester, and this semester finally slapped me in the face. My homework levels have skyrocketed, my extra-curriculars are finally up and running, and my clinical is in full swing. But before I say more, I NEED you to watch this YouTube clip. You’ll hate me for it, but it’s about time and it’s appropriate.

Ok, now that’s out of the way, this week has been a rough one in terms of academia. My classes are demanding, and I’m always busy. I do enjoy being busy, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes, I just need a break! My break is this weekend. I’m so RELIEVED it’s practically here. Anyways, on Monday and Tuesday, I had clinical. These two days are one of my busiest by far. But, I’m so glad they’re at the beginning of the week! On Wednesday, I also have a pretty long day. I go from 1:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. What can I say? Life of a college student.

On Wednesday, the Holland area literally got dumped on with snow. And so much of it. It was so pretty though. It really makes you appreciate this campus for sure. Here is a picture I took of Dimnent Chapel.

How can you not love this school?

But seriously, how can you not love this school? It’s just so majestic. Anyways, so we had a winter storm Wednesday. Thursday was a recovery day for the town. Our campus was (and still is) blanketed in this beautiful white sparkly stuff. Walking to class on Thursday was just so pleasant! BUT, now, we are under another winter storm warning until tomorrow. Honestly, I think this has been one of the worst winters ever. SO MUCH SNOW!

AND I JUST RECEIVED BREAKING NEWS. HOPE COLLEGE IS CLOSING DOWN AT NOON! That means no class for me today! Seriously though, Hope College is making history by canceling classes. And I think my point about this being the worst winter ever is true. I just want to share this photo.


This is surreal. Like, what am I going to do with myself!? Probably stay inside, because if you’re outside for more than 30 minutes, you’ll probably get frostbite. NO JOKE. ¬†And by the way, it feels like -20 degrees outside. So, I guess that’s all I have for now. My week was pretty standard, but now here comes #SNOWPOCALYPSE. I’ll have so much to write about! If you haven’t already, make sure you follow me on DA TWITTER at @HopeMarvin15!
