Time is flying

Wow! I cannot believe how fast college is going. I am enjoying everyday. I have been busy trying to undertake new extra-curricular activities. I have so far participated in:

·      Student Congress
·      Hip-Hop Club
·      Running Club
·      Poverty and Medicine Club
·      Sailing Club
·      Bible Study
·      Yoga Club

Hope has so much to offer. I like being involved in clubs because I can be involved as much or as little as I want. Yoga Club meets 3 times a week, so normally I will just go once. I like being able to choose my schedule and have fun with my friends in these clubs. I have been learning my way around Holland and can officially make it to Meijer without getting lost (great accomplishment for me). I love the down town area in Holland which is just one block from my dorm. I spend a lot of time studying at the local coffee shops and riding my bike with friends through the town. Today I went on a run along Lake Macatawa and it was so gorgeous. I like to be active here; it is a good break from homework and allows me to get some fresh air. I cannot wait to see all the leaves change colors. The first day of fall is tomorrow and I am so excited; fall is definitely my favorite season!

I hope you all are able the fall season.

Until next time,

  1. Dear CJ,

    I love all your pictures and stories about your experiences at Hope. I'm so glad you love it there. Except I am not happy about how far away you are :/ I miss you so much! Like you have no idea! When we are both finally home can we please go on a run in the freezing cold, play in the leaves/snow, drink hot chocolate, and lay in the sauna? I would love to skype you soon πŸ™‚ i love you so much Colleen Joy Quick!
