I cannot believe that this semester is almost over!Though I was a bit stressed this week, it
didn’t stop me from partaking in the various activities both on and off campus!
Friday night I went to the Saint Michael’s home hockey game
at Cairns Arena in South Burlington. This was the first game I went to this
year and it was an awesome game! We played Babson College and we won 4-2! A
bunch of students from Saint Mike’s were there to have fun and cheer on the
Purple Knights! And my roommate Julie sang the national anthem in the beginning
of the game, like she does for soccer games! It was a great time!
Speaking of hockey, my intermural hockey team had our last
game Thursday night. Sadly, we lost, per usual L.
However, everyone played their best and it was evident that as a team, we all
improved and that this was our best game of the season! The end score was 2-5,
which is pretty good considering the team we played was made up of all boys and
one girl who all actually played hockey.
This semester sure was a crazy one. There were ups and there
were downs. And even though the downs were pretty tough, many people were there
to support me. Because of this, I got to know many of my friends on a more
personal level and made many new friends.However, I am so unbelievably sad that I had to say goodbye to my senior
friends. Since I am going abroad next semester, I may never see some of them
again. I know I was eventually going to have to say goodbye, but I’m not ready.
I wish we could all stay in college forever!! I am thankful that two of my good
friends will be living in Burlington this summer and next year, so I may live
with them or, at least be able to see them. And as for my roommates, I am
obviously sad to leave them as well, but they’ll be living with me when I
return for senior year!
Before I left, my roommates and I took a group picture at
the antique shop on Church Street! It was so FUN! They let us run around the
shop and pick out all of our costumes! And th…
This past weekend was super fun! There were many festive on
campus activities to take part of during the week and on the weekend! I made my own costume Friday night and I could
not have been more excited. It seems weird, but since last summer I knew
exactly what I wanted to be… A Wacky Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man! Yes. I
was one of those waving things you see at car dealerships. And, yes, I flailed
and waved all night long. I actually got so into it, that I cannot move my neck
now because I gave myself whiplash. L
Anyway, here’s how I made it! First, I bought two pop-up
hampers from Amazon. I cut off the bottom of one of them so I could fit inside
both hampers when standing up. Then I used zip-ties to attach the hampers to
each other since I cannot sew. Once attached, I covered and wrapped the hampers
with a plastic tablecloth that I bought at Party City for a dollar using super
glue! Next, I cut out holes for my arms (cutting through both the hamper and
