Alright, I don’t have a lot of time because I have to keep studying for my Environmental Biology exam, but here is a quick update.
Tonight we had a HERO meeting and talked about the basketball walk-over on Friday. Unfortunately I’ll miss the first men’s basketball game against Harvard because I’ll be on the ESCAPE retreat, but my roommate Hana and I are organizing face-painting for our dorm. I’m sad to be missing the b-ball game AND the football Patriot League Championship game on Saturday, but I am VERY excited for the retreat. It’s all freshmen, and we get to go to a beautiful retreat center in New Hampshire by a lake. There are rumors of a bonfire and s’mores… mmmm. I’m excited for a break from the fun, yet sometimes chaotic and stressful, life of a college student. I really enjoyed the retreats that my class would go on in high school, and I think this one will be a good opportunity to take a breath, slow down the pace, and do a little self examination after the first few months of college.
Back to studying (I’ve made upwards of 100 notecards so far…)
