Yes, College Students still go skating!

Hello Everyone!

I hope your week is going well. I enjoyed a wonderful weekend. On Friday it was my friend Monique’s 20th birthday. We celebrated by eating at Jonny Carino’s, one of my favorite restaurants in Holland. After dinner we attended the Hope Orchestra Concert to support Monique and watch her play the cello. She looked fabulous up on stage; I felt like a proud mom.

After Monique’s birthday celebration, there was a roller skating event with the all guys dorm, Durfee, and the all girls dorm, Gilmore, The two dorms rented out the roller rink, and a lot of people from the two dorms attended. I loved the event, and everyone had a lot of fun skating! We skated from 9 to 12 in the morning, and I felt exhausted afterwards.

We got our picture taken with Santa!!!!

After walking around downtown, some friends came over to my room. We basically chilled the rest of the evening and enjoyed some great conversations and laughs.

Today, I attended church with my friends and then played tennis with Matheus, Matthias, and Amy. Matheus and I took the victory over Amy and Matthias. We were pretty excited after our big win. The rest of the today consisted of studying and grocery shopping. I am excited to only have 3 days of school this week. Thanksgiving break is SO close!
