The Final Stretch Until Fall Break!

We are entering another week! It sounds crazy right? Time has been FLYING, and that’s a understatement. Here’s my theory: the days are so long, but the weeks are incredibly short! I just want to let you all know what I did this past weekend, and I want to give you an update of what is coming up this week!

FRIDAY: Friday was just such a great day. Why? NO CLASS! I was super productive that day. I worked out, did a lot of homework, and cleaned. I also ran some errands which was nice. I also got the Vienna Summer School application, so I filled that sucker out right away! The application wasn’t open to the public yet, so I felt honored! Friday night was the Homecoming Hoedown, sponsored by one of the best organizations on campus, SAC (which I’m in!) There were hay rides, animals, line dancing, great food, and of course, friends!! Here are some pictures of my closest friends! After the hoedown, it was time for bed.

SATURDAY: How did I start my Saturday? By working out, of course. I went with my friend Nate, and our workout killed us. After about one hour after our workout, we went to the Taste of the South, a Homecoming event made possible by our own President Knapp! Here, alumni and students sampled southern cuisine, and let me tell ya, it was out of this world. After I ate food, I did homework with friend Hannah and her friend Lauren who is a med school student at MSU. It was fun talking about medical stuff. It always gets me going. After a couple of hours of homework, I went to Grand Rapids, Michigan for ArtPrize 2013 with my friends Erica, Tara, Tess, and Abby. It was so cool to see all of the art entries from all over the United States. I took a bunch of pictures, but my phone decided to freakout and deleted them all. But, I salvaged some, so no worries! Here they are!

The panda was my favorite entry. Why? It was cute and it is my favorite animal, hands down. We also ate dinner at the Cottage Bar. They had really good burgers. I recommend it! I had the Tijuana burger and it had guacamole in it. YUMMY!

SUNDAY: Today was a lazy day, but fun! My friend Joey and I had breakfast, I did homework, had a FAMILY DINNER with some of my friends. It was amazing! The food was great, but the company was better! Hope College’s own Chelsea Barfield was there! (click her name to get to her blog!) After that, we all went to the Gathering together. Now, it’s time for bed.

AHEAD THIS WEEK: This might be my longest week yet. I have a presentation on Monday, and an exam on Thursday and Friday! I’ll be sure too give you all a mid-week update! Make sure you follow me on twitter!! CLICK HERE! God bless to all!
