What a Week!

Happy Friday everyone! Let me tell you, this week turned out
to be something else. Here’s a list of some of the things I did:

  • Got an
    A on my Accounting Exam
  • Enjoyed
    some nice, cool fall weather
  • Attended
    the Hope vs. Calvin soccer game
  • Went to
    Good Time Doughnuts with some freshmen
  • Had
    dinner with my Dad
  • Met
    some high school seniors for coffee at JP’s

The longer that I have been in college, the more I have
realized that it’s truly the simple things in life that make my day. While it
was great to receive an A on my accounting exam this week, it was equally
exciting to drink coffee and chat with high school seniors about life and their
potential college choices.

Another exciting thing that happened this week was my dad
came up to Michigan
for work and since he was in town, he took me out for dinner. While the dinner
was really good, and the company was even better, the Chick-fil-A nuggets that
he brought me from Indiana
were the best! It might sound strange but seeing my dad and eating Chick-fil-A
just brought a little bit of home to me.

One of my favorite things about beginning the school year is
all of the new faces on campus. While it’s great to reconnect with old friends,
it’s also fun to branch out and make new friends. This week, I was invited to
go on a doughnut run with four pretty cool freshmen. I loved hearing about Hope
from their perspective because everything is new and exciting – it’s almost
like reliving your own freshman year.

Finally, last night was the big Hope/Calvin soccer rivalry.
Even though Calvin won this time, the game was still fun to enjoy with friends.
Plus, I have total confidence that the Dutchmen will come back and win the next
game!

Have a great weekend!!
