When I’m home next week slicing open the Turkey (or watching my dad do it), I’m going to have a lot to be thankful for: my great friends, being fortunate enough to get a great education and family that supports me no matter what. Mostly, I’ll just be happy that I don’t have the flu anymore though!
It’s always about this time that people are WORN OUT with school, which is why it’s important to have a lot going on. Our teachers have been throwing tests at us like a Thanksgiving day football while mother nature has given us nothing in the way of the fresh white powder us mountain lovers are craving.
Luckily, classes are pretty much over for me until after this upcoming break and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve gotten a chance to check some other things off of my check-list: yesterday I went to see a few houses with 2 of the people I’ll be moving off-campus with next year. It was pretty exciting to be house-hunting, something typically reserved for… adults? I’m shocked at how quickly my generally slow-moving generation is jumping on this whole housing thing, half of my friends have already signed leases for next year! It’s great to go through this process in Burlington because there are so many different neighborhoods to look at and so many great properties.
Last night was Moonlight Movie Madness, one of the largest Class Council events that I’ve ever been a part of. We closed Essex Cinemas in Essex Junction for the night, and between the hours of midnight and 6am we had all of the theaters playing, showing each movie about 2 times. Class Council, through tabling in the Davis Center and outside of the Bailey Howe Library, pre-sold almost 350 tickets! That is HUGE in the world of college event planning! The event went off pretty flawlessly and people said that they had a great time! It was a great way to wind down before break.
I hope that everyone out there has a chance to relax and reflect before this break, and that everyone has a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving!!!
