Almost There – On Pushing Through The Rest of the School Year

Hi everyone! Here at Hope, we’re very quickly nearing the end of the school year. As the weather heats up, the ants in the pants start squirming, and everyone is ready for summer. I know that at most colleges and universities the time is winding down, but high schoolers might still have a little ways …

It’s a Blast to be in a Cast

Alright, it’s been a couple weeks since my post about May Term, and enough is enough. I can’t say that everything about May term was absolutely fantastic. Or maybe I can. But I really can’t. But I kind of can. Here, let me explain… Two weeks into May Term, I went for a walk with …

It’s Partway into June… way too soon!

Yikes! Am I far behind or what? I’ve been meaning to update you on my summer thus far, and after review I realized that I have plenty of drafts and nothing published. I apologize for that. However, I was up to some pretty awesome shenanigans in May. I stayed on Hope’s campus to complete my …

For those reading this, you’ve come to the right blog. I know I already did an introduction of myself and whatnot, but now I want to share my summer with you. I know it seems kind of ridiculous, especially in September, but trust me, it’ll be worth it. Now that that’s out of the way, …

My Summer + Orientation 2013!

Hello Everyone! Even though I already made my first post of the year, I wanted to talk a little bit about my summer! From early May to mid July, not much happened. I was at home in Iowa, where I watched sheep play behind my house and way too many shows on Netflix. But seriously, …

You guys, I am so excited to tell you about an event I’m going to this summer. You may have heard of it; it’s called… Yes, I’m going to Lollapalooza this summer! For those who don’t know, Lollapalooza is a three-day music festival in August held in Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois. This isn’t your …
