Well, many people have asked me what it feels like to still be at Hope without taking any classes. The answer I normally give is that it doesn’t feel extremely different yet. I still live in the same off-campus house, workout at the Dow, attend the Gathering, play intramurals, spend time at the coffee shops, attend sporting events, stay up way later than I should, and still blog for Hope. I do a lot of the same activities that I did first semester but now I don’t have classes. I am currently working at a church in Holland with middle school students before I start full-time with Edward Jones in June. This semester so far has been a complete blast. I thought I would run out of things to do, but I have found plenty of things to keep me busy. It is nice not having to stress about about completing homework, although I do miss attending classes with friends.
My jobs are keeping me busy, but it is nice to come home in the evening and spend time with my friends and not worry about completing homework or studying for exams. I think this will be a nice semester to transition into my full time job starting in the summer. And speaking of summer, this winter has been nuts! SO MUCH SNOW! I have never seen a winter like this. It has been freezing and flurrying nonstop, but the snow is absolutely beautiful. Thankfully next weekend I will be in Florida with some sunshine to look forward to.
Enjoy your week!
