Spring Break in the Carolinas

This spring break, I got to go on tour with Hope’s Chapel Choir to North and South Carolina. I had never been there before, so it was a really cool experience! I love the Carolinas now and it was cool to see how our sound progressed and changed in each new venue each night. We started out in Ohio, then went on to several shows in North Carolina, a visit to Duke University, a free day in Charleston, SC, and one night in Virginia before heading back home. Choir tour was an awesome opportunity to experience so many new things. Otherwise, I probably would have just gone home, which would have been fine, but it was awesome to go somewhere I had never been before. We came back to Hope Thursday night, and Friday morning I took the train to Chicago, where my parents picked my boyfriend Larry and I up for a quick weekend at home. I got to see my high school’s production of “The Little Mermaid” (so, so cute!), visit my grandparents, and sing at my home church. It was great to be there, even though it was just for a few days.

Now I have about five more weeks left at Hope this semester, including finals. It sounds short, but I have so much to pack into these few weeks that I don’t really want to think about it! I know everything will get done, but I am going to have to budget my time more wisely than usual. It’s the final push! In the meantime, I have coffee and Jesus to keep me truckin’. Praise the Lord for that!
