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.
Moving into a brand new building with my three best friends is the greatest way to begin my junior year. The apartment is HUGE. And everything is new and clean! This year I am super excited to have a kitchen where I can cook for myself! I love cooking and have a great class schedule which will allow me to have ample time to cook and prepare meals (which I will most likely be sharing on this blog).
I learned, finally, how to pack lightly. You would think with such a huge apartment that you could bring anything you wanted. This is not true. First of all, I can only fill my car with so much. And, half of the things I brought last year were unnecessary. So, I have finally found a good balance. For starters, I only brought the clothes I will actually wear. This means bringing more fall clothes than summer clothes, one bathing suit, and two fancy-ish dresses. I mostly brought workout clothes, because, let's be real, once it gets cold, that's all I am going to wear.
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…
