What’s Been Happening at Hope!

Hello, everyone! Hope you have been enjoying this week of beautiful weather. As I sat down to blog tonight, I considered my different topic options. While I could probably post something about success in college (or some helpful hints) I thought it might be nice just to share what I have been up to recently. After all, every minute of college shouldn’t be spent in the library.

Apple Picking: Not too far away from Holland, MI is a great apple orchard called Crane’s. A few weekends ago, I went with my housemates and some friends to the orchard for some good fall fun. After trying so many types of apples, I decided that the Blondee apples were the ones for me! After picking apples, my friends and I headed over to the orchard store were we ate cider donuts and drank apple cider. It was the perfect fall adventure!

High School Football Game: Last weekend I was able to watch my cousin play football or Zeeland East High School. Matthew is a very talented football player who is tons of fun to watch play. Thanks for inviting me to your game, Matt! Hopefully I can catch another game soon! Go Chix!

Hope vs. Calvin Volleyball Game: What a great game! As a Hope student, there’s nothing really like watching Calvin be beat! And were they beat! Hope Volleyball won the match in three sets – super impressive. And, as fun as it is to go and watch the games, it’s even more fun when you know someone on the team! My roommate Elyse is on the team, and she had a great game against Calvin. Looking forward to attending more games, and {hope}fully there will be more wins to come.

Well, it’s been an exciting couple of weeks! I look forward to more fun times at Hope, and more blog posts to write. Until next time, have a wonderful last half of the week, and make sure to follow me on Twitter and/or Instagram (hopechelsea15).
