Let the Adventures Begin: Weekend #1

My roommate, Kristin, and her parents kindly offered to welcome us into their home for the weekend. So on Friday Kristin and I packed up, grabbed our best friend, and left our bee problem and campus behind us for the weekend. We drove an hour and a half south to La Porte, Indiana, counting the significant […]

Exploring – St. Joseph, Michigan

Hello! I hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday. Last night I was in St. Joseph, Michigan, for my sorority’s Spring Formal. The hotel that hosted us was just kitty corner to the downtown. I was surprised at how cute the town was, and thought I’d share in my blog post this week. St. Joseph is […]

Why Drinking a Slushie in 7 Degree Weather Was Good For My Ego

I was drinking a slushie today in the parking lot of Holland State Park. I know that sounds kind of weird, but it’s actually an experience I take part in on a semi-regular basis. It was a 20 oz ICEE, to be exact, and it was one sale for only $1 from the Meijer convenient […]

Sunday Beach Adventure

We have been blessed with some beautiful weather this past week and I wanted to take advantage of what might be our last opportunity to venture to the beach before fall’s chill sets in. So, my roommate promised that if I finished writing my papers she would take me to the beach this weekend. I […]

It’s Colder Up North Than It Is In Holland

ROAD TRIP: One (of many) adventures a college student will take part in throughout their years of schooling. And, since we were searching for an adventure, that’s exactly what we did. My cousin, Jordan, her roommate, Rachel, and I made a trek up north on Friday afternoon to my family’s timeshare about an hour south […]

Hey, I’m Home Again!

Home Sweet Hope, as the saying goes. It’s a new year with new and exciting experiences ahead, and I am psyched to see what God has planned for me in the coming weeks. With this in mind, I figure with the new year starting off, I’ll throw in a reintroduction as well as a recap […]

To Study, Or Not to Study?

To Study, Or Not to Study? Holland, Michigan is so absolutely beautiful, so I constantly feel tempted to explore the outdoors and play in the current beautiful weather. Last Saturday, my friends and I were studying at Starbucks, when suddenly I received the urge to play in the water at the beach. I asked my […]

Reunited with Hope Friends!

Yet again, I was reunited with some more Hope friends this past weekend. Three of my friends who are working at Spring Hill Camp this summer came to visit. Also, two of my friends drove from Indiana. We were all reunited. We walked the streets of downtown Holland Saturday morning. Following a visit to Lemonjello’s […]

Beach Escape!

Hey Everyone! I hope you all are doing well. Today concludes the first day of exam week. I woke up at 7 to study before my Spanish exam this morning. I was very tired because I had stayed up late working on my stats final exam paper, but no worries… IT IS FINISHED! I felt […]
