Hope friends come to Springfield!

Hi Everyone! I hope you all are well. I am currently sitting with my friends on the couch watching the Bachelor. I have never even heard of the show, but we have nothing else to do so I guess we decided to watch it. I arrived at Hope last night and have been hanging out with friends since I have been here. I loved spending time at home over break, but I am happy to be back. My friends Marga and Matthias came to visit me during break. I loved showing them around Springfield. We ate out dinner with my friends, made buckeyes, toured Springfield, hung out with my friends from high school, and spent time with my family. We also walked around Washington park and explored the woods next to my house. It was fun spending time with them outside of our normal college enviorment.

The weather was perfect when they were here. We played soccer outside in shirts and shorts. The weather was crazy nice over break, it did not feel like winter at all. I hope it continues to stay nice outside. However, Holland is already much colder than Springfield. Oh well, I am very happy to be back and am ready for a new semester!
