Thanksgiving break was a really nice time to spend with my family and friends. I really enjoyed seeing some of my best friends, and I was excited to see them for the first time since school had started. We had so much to catch up on, and it felt just like old times even though we had been away at school for months. My parents and I enjoyed some time together spent outside enjoying the nice weather we had one day, and indoors watching movies and Christmas shopping the rest of the time, when it was rainy and cold outside.
I realized when I was home that as much as I love being there, it is just a little too quiet for me and I really feel like Bloomington is my new home, where I am surrounded by so many of my friends all the time and always have somebody to study with or play guitar with; it’s never lonely here.
Coming back from break, however, was a transition back into the “real world,” which includes tons of homework and projects to finish out the semester. I am questioning whether I have enough hours in the day to finish all the projects, homework and studying I need to have done by Monday alone. I am getting a little worried, but I know that no matter what it takes I will get everything done, even if it means having a few late nights at the library.
In the midst of everything, I am beginning sorority rush this weekend and I’m really excited, although it puts a huge dent in my studying time! I definitely think it will be worth it though- I will just challenge myself to manage my time so I can finish everything I need to by Monday. I will check back in a week, see you then!
