Weekends in the Fall

Hey Everyone!

I cannot believe it is already October and the semester is now in full swing. This past weekend was packed with fun events. On Friday evening I ate with some friends on the patio at the City Vu restaurant in downtown Holland. We watched the sunset and chatted for hours. After dinner I played racket ball with a friend who graduated last year from Hope. He is now studying at University of Michigan. It was a lot of fun to catch up with him and play racket ball.

On Saturday morning my running buddy Steph and I drove to Grand Rapids for a 20-mile training run for the Grand Rapids Marathon. We woke up at 6:00 AM to start the run at 7:30. After 3 hours of nonstop running we drove back to Holland and bought some fresh food at the local farmer’s market downtown. Then I attended my final Pull at Hope College, and finally after losing all my years at Hope, Even Year won! I unfortunately was not able to see the very end of Pull, because I was headed to Grand Rapids to view ArtPrize.

On Saturday night I went with a big group of people from Hope to walk around Grand Rapids and check out some majorly talented pieces of art. After hanging around Grand Rapids we ate at Applebee’s for half-off apps (a very common thing to do at Hope).

Sunday morning I attended church and enjoyed such a beautiful day outside. I golfed at Winding Creek on a perfect fall day. After golfing I ate some delicious Qdoba outside and finished up my weekend with some homework and attending the Gathering.

One of the reasons I love Hope is because every weekend is different. There is always so much to do and different fun opportunities both on and off campus. I’m now a little behind in homework and need to catch up from such a fun weekend.

Enjoy the beautiful fall weather!photo 3
