It has truly been such a great week at Hope! It is always crazy to me how fast the days and weeks and months speed by! It seems like just yesterday I was just a freshman starting my first day!

So many great things happened this week. For starters, Grace had her birthday and we threw her an awesome surprise birthday party with a great group of people! It ended with eating lots of great food and having a dance party in Reeverts. Also, this week intramural flag football started up, which has been a blast. I love being outside in the fresh air and running around with friends! It seems like I have been a lot less overwhelmed with homework this week, so that has been a relief! I especially enjoy my Microeconomics class; I really like the prof and the material is super interesting! Even though I am not in the dorms, I have been able to feel like I am a part of it still by spending lots of times with my good pals Ali and Steph in Gilmore 209.  I feel so at home there and love to study and chat with them.

I have also recently joined Business Club, which has presented lots of great opportunities! At the end of October we are taking a weekend down to Chicago to meet with big firms and go to fun places like Shedd Aquarium and Ed Debevics to eat! I am so excited!

Also, a new Biggby is just opening in Holland! Today, they were offering free coffee because they were training new baristas! I hope to visit there again tomorrow! Gotta love coffee!

Overall, it has been a great week at Hope College! I hope all of you have had a great week too!
