Winterful – Weekend

Hey Everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying the Christmas season. Life is good here. The past week flew by so fast. This past weekend, I went to Grand Rapids with a group of friends. We ate out at a Mongolian Barbeque restaurant. The food was so awesome. After, we walked around Grand Rapids and admired the pretty lights. We also hung out at a coffee shop for a while.

We took a picture by the huge tree in the downtown.

On Saturday, I accomplished quite a bit of homework and chilled with my friends. We went to a dance on campus. It was a neon dance, and people were decked head to toe in crazy bright neon clothes. The dance was a lot of fun and everyone was having a good time. 

Here is my friend Sarah and I before the dance.

On Sunday, I went to church and then did some homework with friends at JP’s coffee shop downtown Holland. Later on that evening, people from our dorm decorated the lobby for Christmas, and it was so much fun. We played Christmas music and had a good time together setting up all the decorations. I really like my dorm. It has a “homey” feel to it. Also on Sunday night, there was a campus wide snowball fight in the pine grove. It was totally epic. People were running around the pine grove having a blast and throwing snowballs. I am glad I participated in the snowball fight. It was a great end to an awesome weekend. 

Until Next Time,
