I hope you all are having a good week. It has been a beautiful week so far. I am writing this blog from the pine grove, which is like Hope’s outdoor commonplace. I come here often and read under the huge trees, and it is very relaxing. People hang up hammocks and take afternoon naps in them. I definitely want to invest in one of those. The pine grove is a good place to just come sit, chill, and relax. I enjoy riding my bike along the paths. Academic buildings surround the pine grove so it is in the middle of everything. People also play a lot of Frisbee golf and other games in the pine grove. I am currently sitting here with friends and we are listening to music and doing homework. The pine grove is great study environment when you want a change of scenery from being inside. It is a double bonus right now because the leaves are changing colors. I absolutely love fall, and Holland so far is having an amazing fall. I am enjoying spending time outdoors here. Many students take walks/ run/ ride bikes through the pine grove. It is definitely one of my most favorite places on campus!
Enjoy the weather,
