Fine, Fresh, Fun, Fabulous Fall Break

I’ll just come out and say it, FALL BREAK = FABULOUS

It was so nice to be able to come home to friends and family. I left school on Friday at about 12:30 and got home at 8:30. It was a rather long trip but being home felt so great! During my fall break I visited my high school and was able to reconnect with people from my school. My friend and I drove to Illinois College to pick up another friend so we could all hang out. I am so glad we have been able to stay in contact with people from high school even though we are all spread out. While at college we have been keeping in contact by skype and texting. 

Even while I was home I still missed my friends from college so I was sure to keep in contact with them. I cannot wait to hear about everyone’s fall break. It was definitely nice to take time and relax and rewind. 

Here are some of the things I really enjoyed about being home:

  • My bed!
  • Home cooked meals
  • My home church
  • Visiting my high school
  • Hanging out with friends from high school
  • Spending time with my family
  • Driving
  • Running on Springfield’s bike trail

Although I had a super great break, I am excited to head back to school. I have a busy week ahead of me, and I cannot wait to get back in the groove of things. It is super weird not having somebody in the room at night, I actually miss it. I have enjoyed being home, but college is so much fun and keeps me busy. I’ll be back for Thanksgiving, so in the mean time I’ll keep you all posted about what is going on at Hope.

Have a great week!
