The concept of D&D is basically to have a discussion that relates to God/our faith in some way, while also incorporating some delicious dessert. This week, Alex and I chose to make sugar cookies. We also provided icing and sprinkles so that everyone could decorate their cookies. We decided to focus our topic of discussion on how our relationship with God has strengthened since being back at school this year. Everyone who attended was able to contribute to the conversation as well as enjoy a cookie or two, which was wonderful! Alex and I were and are very pleased with how everything went and we can't wait to do it again next month!

Another situation that made me slightly nervous this week happened on Thursday. I had a meeting right around the time I normally get dinner, so I knew I'd have to eat when I got out. This may sound silly, but I get nervous about sitting by myself in Alliot (I'm sure at least a few of you can empathize!), but I had to eat, so I prepared myself for this possibility. Once I got to Alliot, I immediately saw some people who I was comfortable sitting with and had a great time eating with them. It was definitely something little, but I was really proud of myself for being able to go talk to people I don't necessarily see every day. One of the great things about Saint Mike's is that just about everyone you meet is so friendly and welcoming - I really had nothing to be afraid of!
Hope everyone's Sunday is going well and for those of you at SMC, thank you for your smiling and friendly faces! And as usual, thanks for reading my blog!
