You do you boo.

My Friend, Sayde and I, doing Middle Part Friday.

So TODAY, Friday October 24th, my friends, is MIDDLE PART FRIDAY. What is Middle Part Friday? Well, it is a day where you middle part you hair. What’s the reason…just because. My friend Sayde wanted to do it, so we did. If you think “Middle Part Friday” was good, just wait until “Toga Tuesday” happening on the 28th. Not only do you get to wear a toga, but it is for breast Cancer Awareness Month!


Party Shirt
This is my friends, myself, and my “party shirt.”

Something that has come from being in college has been and still is a lot of discovery. And some of the discovery deals with ME. In college, I have completely and fully embraced my “inner-weird.” And I love ever minute of it. In high school, it came out at moments, but I was too concerned about what people would think of me and was controlled by a fear of being judged. Well, NO MORE. The phrase, “You do you,” that is how I live my life now: “I do me.” I am weird by the norms of society, and guess what, I proud of that fact because it is a part of what makes me, me!


Homecoming Hoedown. I came prepared.



Now that I know more about myself, I am truly happy and comfortable being my weird, goofy, and silly self. This year for school, I came prepared. I brought the right clothes in order to express my goofiness as you can see in the pictures. These clothes are more important than the clothes of normal day. They are a necessity in my closet.





All in all, I have learned that it is so important to be yourself. When you are yourself, that is when you can find joy. You do you friends, you do you.

My name is John Luke Hawkins and I am a sophomore at Hope. I am from the small agriculture town of Tipton, Indiana. I love my new Home sweet Hope. Currently, I double majoring in Communications and Religion. When I am not doing homework (too often), I might be working one of my jobs as a Library Worker, Overnight Host, or Student Blogger. If I am not doing homework or work, I am probably doing something with my numerous organizations that I am involved in such as Dance Marathon, Gospel Choir, Intramurals, Nykerk, and a small group. If I come up with free time amongst all that, then I like to run, free dance, self-reflect, go on adventures, and spend time with friends. Hope College has really helped me discover who I am. Here it is in seven words: energetic, organized, contemplative, determined, silly, social, and intentional.
