My Weekend!

Hi everyone! I had a jam-packed amazing weekend that I have to tell you about!


3pm-Went to a biology department sponsored lecture presented by a Hope grad about her PhD work in marine biology. It was so interesting!

5pm-Had a meeting at a local coffee shop, JP’s, with my Nykerk oration co-coach, the even year coaches, and the general chair to discuss the oration theme for this year. After lots of discussion, we picked one and I couldn’t be happier!

8pm-Went to the Antrim Dells and Youth Lagoon concert at the Knickerbocker Theater sponsored by the Hope College Concert Series. I’m so glad I went; it was great! HCCS always brings talented performers!


9am-Got up early to get a head start on my homework

12pm-Ate hamburgers at a football tailgate with my sorority sisters and the Promethean Fraternity. Added bonus: we won the game! Go Hope!

1pm-Met a student I will be tutoring this semester at Cup & Chaucher in the Library. I can’t wait to get started on my new job!

2pm-Went shopping for some clothes to wear at my high school field placement this semester. The trip was very successful!

7pm-Talked on the phone to my sister about everything that happened in my life at Hope during the last week. I always look forward to our talks!

10pm-Spent the night playing DJ with some friends and doing more studying


9am-Got up early and claimed a classroom in Martha Miller where I studied for an upcoming biology test. Martha Miller is my new favorite study spot!

3pm-Worked on a presentation for one of my education classes with my friend Betsey

6pm-More homework!

10pm-Attended my weekly sorority business meeting where I gave out some birthday treats and got everyone to sign a card for one of our sisters studying abroad this semester. My journey to the meetings is short this year because they are held in the basement of our sorority cottage, where I happen to be living! Very convenient!

So that was my weekend! Was yours as busy as mine? Did you do anything exciting? Let me know on Twitter or in a comment! Hope you have a great week!
