New Crib in Holland

Hey everyone!

I hope you all are doing well. Life in Holland is great. I am now finally moved into my summer house. It is located on 13th street, which is still close to campus, and I am living here with four other girls from Hope. I now officially feel like an independent college student: living on my own, cooking and cleaning, taking class during the morning, working in the afternoons, and trying to squeeze in a little time for myself. These past couple weeks have been crazy, but they have also been great.

Last weekend I drove home to Springfield for my sister’s graduation party. I brought my friend from Hope home with me. My sister said we were legit college friends because I had visited her house and now she had visited my house.

We enjoyed our time together. I especially enjoyed the company for the six-hour car drive. =]

After the visit to Springfield, my friend helped me move into my off campus summer house. Moving the futon from the basement to my room was quite the trip. It took a good five hours before I settled all of my things.

Now I am sitting at my desk in my new house. It feels good to be settled. However, I probably will not get strong enough Wi-Fi to post this blog, so I will post it in the morning. =]

Have a stunning weekend!

Until next time,


New room!
