CHRISTmas Gathering!

Wahoo I’m done with my finals!!!!! Now all I have left is one paper then I’m home free. People are starting to pack their bags and head home. I am staying until Friday because I work, and I just want to hang out with my friends on campus and not have to worry about schoolwork. I have put in quite a bit of studying these past few days, and I am worn out! I cannot wait to go home and catch up on sleep. Coffee has become my best friend this week! During break, I am going to try and cut back on my caffeine intake. People told me I would start to like coffee in college, but I never believed them. Now, I do not even remember what it feels like to not enjoy drinking coffee. What was I thinking? Now one of my favorite things to do in college is grab coffee with my friends.

My friends at Hope are incredible, and I could not be more thankful. I legitimately have met quality nice people. On Sunday night we attended Hope’s Christmas gathering, which consisted of classic Christmas carols and scripture readings. The chapel looked beautiful with its classy Christmas decorations and lights. It was a lot of fun to dress up with my friends, and after we had a little photo shoot in the Voorhees lobby. Here are some of the pictures from the last gathering.
