One Month In

Time flies when you’re at college, right? Well, it sure does for me. I mean, we are already more than one month in for Fall Semester. What’s even scarier for me is that I am a senior, and next week is October. Crazy. During my first month at Hope, a lot has happened! For starters, life got real. It finally hit me that it’s my last undergraduate year, and I won’t be around these people after being with them for 4 years. WOW, it’s going to be one large adjustment.

Thinking about graduate school too has been somewhat stressful. I’m just embarking on finishing 4 years of school, and I want to go for 4 more years. Why? I guess I just can’t get enough of it. I’m somewhat kidding, but in order for me to get my Ph.D., that 4 extra years is necessary.

Time is flying because I am finally in the swing of things. I am in a routine and have a set schedule for everyday during the week. Of course there is room to do spontaneous things, like going to football games, or going out to eat with friends. Because my life is hectic, I need this spontaneous time to socialize and be with my friends!

Some of the highlights I’ve had so far were going to 3 Michigan games with some of my favorite people. 1) With my best friend Joey, 2) with my roommate Nate, and 3) with my friend Lauren! (see the slideshow below for some pictures!) Last week, we also had a Vienna reunion dinner. It was so great to see my very best friends, even though I see them often, and it was also great to see the other students who went to Europe. Of course no one turned away free food! Another fun time was just last Thursday, or the Ben Rector concert with Joey. His music is simply the best, and SAC sponsored it, so I’m not biased at all 🙂

Well, that’s just a summary of what has been going on. I have mentioned some of these in my previous blogs, so check those out! Also, check out the pictures below. Thanks all for reading!
