If there was one word to describe this week, it would be whirlwind.
I have had tours upon tours, a French test, econ readings, homecoming events, graphic design projects, meetings, study abroad research, and videos to make. This past week has been super crazy but fun and exciting all at the same time!
Let’s start with two Fridays ago (the 17th). After class on Friday (I get out at 11:30!!!), my friend Kayla and I went straight to the movies to see The Best Of Me, the new Nicholas Sparks movie! I am usually a sucker for a good Rom Com but this was definitely not my favorite Nicholas Sparks (but let’s be honest could anything beat The Notebook?!). It was still a nice break from homework and a fun way to kick off the weekend! We ran back to campus so we could get ready to drive to Charlotte with 5 friends to go to Scarowinds! Scarowinds is at an amusement park (like Six Flags or Bush Gardens), but during the Halloween season they open it at night and it’s turned into a haunted amusement park! All the big roller coasters were still running, which are my absolute favorite and honestly it was no where near as scary as I thought it might be. I cannot even watch a scary movie and I was completely fine. We had an absolute blast riding all the rides until midnight but we didn't get back to Campus until almost 2!
Saturday was rough because I was getting up super early (I had to be ready to go at 7am!!) because we were going on a hike to celebrate a friend in my pledge class’s 20th birthday! So I didn’t get much sleep…..We had an absolute blast though, and the fall colors were gorgeous. Definitely something we are going to make a yearly tradition.
Sunday was homework day. We had a four hour sorority meeting planned from 2-6 and then chapter at 7:30. I woke up early (again!) to try to finish homework and unfortunately my computer decided to crash/ freeze right in the middle of a project. Of course it didn't recover and I called my mom sobbing and frustrated. I ended up redoing it all and somehow I lived to talk about it. Let’s say I was happy when Sunday ended.
This past week was homecoming week! I was nonstop busy with activities which made the week 10X more fun. We built floats, presented skits, and Friday we had a huge pep rally/ carnival/ swing dancing event! It was a blast but none the less, exhausting.Saturday was our homecoming game and we tailgated all morning and then headed to the game in the afternoon!
Yesterday was another birthday celebration for a sorority sister and this time we celebrated by going to Asheville for lunch and we walked around downtown. It was nice to get off campus for a few hours and spend time outside (and not doing homework!).
Now that I feel like I have finally caught you all up on what I have been doing the past two weeks, here’s a few things that you should know!
