Hello everyone! So sorry I haven't posted in a while! As you may know, SMC studnets just finished up our first week of classes after spring break. I had an extremely busy week, but I'm so happy to be back at school. Before I tell you about my week though, I want to update you on how awesome my break was!
I left SMC on Friday afternoon after class. My dad usually works from home (in New Hampshire), but his office is in Vermont and he happened to be there on Friday. I had never been to his office before, so I decided to take a slight detour and go visit him on my way home. He showed me around the town of Waitsfield, VT (where his office is located) and took me out to lunch. My dad has come to visit me at school a few times, so it was really nice to be able to return the favor and see where he works.
After lunch, I headed home to New Hampshire and was welcomed with some beautiful fresh snow! (My brothers had a snow day...I was jealous!) I quickly unpacked and then headed over to a family friend's house to watch Pitch Perfect. My friends make references to the movie all the time, so I figured it was about time I watch it. It wasn't the best movie I've ever seen, but it was quite funny!
On Saturday I got to hang out with two of my best friends, Paige and Val. We had a great time doing typical girl things - watching TV, making brownies and eating half the batter, and talking all night long. I hadn't seen them since January so I really enjoyed getting to catch up on how their semesters were going.
Since my brothers have to get up early to catch the bus every morning, it is tradition for me to drive them to school at least once each time I come home. I chose Tuesday since they had a late start (which means school started at 9:30 instead of 7:30). After dropping them off, I stopped by my old guidance counselor Brian's office. One of the reasons I decided to be a psych major is beacuse I want to be the next Brian. I hope to be a school counselor someday, and Brian continues to inspire this dream because he was so helpful to me during high school, and whenever I go back to visit him he is extremely welcoming and interested in hearing about how my college life is going.
After visiting Brian, I also visited my old chemistry teacher Viet and my old Ethics teacher Chris. My best friend Paige happened to be in Chris's room at the same time I was because she was observing his class (for her education class back at school), so I decided to stay and observe with her. Being best friends, we of course ended up talking and passing notes for the majority of the class, which was a blast. It was also really fun to talk to Chris about college and how the way he teaches Ethics prepared us for learning in college.
Later that night, I babysat for two of my favorite girls, Genevieve and Grace :)
On Wednesday I headed up to my family's house in Maine with my mom. We were able to go for a walk on the beach, relax, as well as do some studying (she had some work to do for one of her massage classes!). As many of you know, I have an extremely close relationship with my mom, so I always treasure the time I get to spend with her.
When my mom and I got home, my best friend Paige came over so we could hang out one last time before going back to school. We of course had lots of fun!
I finished up the weekend by going to Mass with my family and then going out to dinner with some family friends to talk about our trip to Hawaii in December...is it bad that I'm already excited?! :)
I headed back to Vermont on Sunday (hard to believe that was almost a week ago already!). I had a lot of work to do this week, but I was able to accomplish everything I needed to. I have another crazy week ahead, but I'm looking forward to it because I'll be going home after class on Thursday for our Easter break.
I'm off to get some work done, but I just wanted to say congratulations to everyone who has officially decided to make Saint Mike's their home next year - couldn't be more excited for you! :)
As always, thanks for reading my blog and have a fantastic weekend!
