A Memorable Weekend!

As the school year starts winding down, I’ve been finding myself busier and busier during the weekends. Busy in my life doesn’t necessary translate to boring; in fact, this past weekend was one of the busiest of my semester, and it could not have been more fun!


I started my night by briefly attending an event called Culture and Mocktails. The ballroom in the Haworth Inn was filled with fruity drinks, light refreshments, and great conversation. I left the event early to go to the last Hope Orchestra concert of the year. As a former orch dork, I try to go to as many orchestra concerts as I can. I’m so glad I went to this one, because it featured a Hope Professor, Adam Clark, in a piano concerto that was amazing. Seriously, it was beyond words. What’s more impressive is that he had the whole piece, which was about 20 minutes, memorized! After the concert, I went to Applebee’s with a group of my sorority sisters. Following the meal, I went to my friend Meghan’s room with another friend Chelsea, and we made a music video to Shakira’s Hips Don’t Lie. Out of sheer embarrassment, you (and the rest of the world) will never see the finished product!


I spent my morning at the Admitted Students Student Life Fair, where I met some of you and took a selfie with the other bloggers! It was really cool to meet some of the new freshmen and spend some time with the other bloggers, who I don’t see very often. Later in the day, my family drove in from Iowa to attend a sorority family picnic with me. Unfortunately, it was only about 30 degrees at the time of the picnic, so we didn’t stay too long! I went to my family’s hotel where we warmed up for a little bit before heading to the current Hope theater production, Stage Door. It was hilarious and the actors did a great job. Congrats to all involved! 

And that’s where my fun weekend ends! I spent my Sunday doing homework, which is not so fun 🙁 How did you spend your weekend? If you came for Admitted Students Day, what was your favorite part about it? Leave me a message or tweet me!
