    New Year, New Semester

    I’m back! After three weeks of traveling and enjoying my break up in the frozen tundra of Michigan, (I enjoyed the break part, not so much the frozen part) I have to say it feels good to be back in Ave. Besides the obvious fact that it is about 70 degrees warmer in Florida, it’s good to see all my friends and get back into the swing of college life.

    Now that I’ve settled back into my room, it feels like just yesterday we were all freaking out about finals: late nights in the library, study breaks on the sand volleyball court, and many prayers to St. Joseph of Cupertino. After my last final, I packed my bags for break—this entailed attempting to shove all my belongings into my suitcase and sitting on it to zip it. Before long, I was on the plane back home. The weather was a shock at first, I had to sleep with mittens on because I was so cold, but I did enjoy having a white Christmas. Seeing my puppy, my family, and friends was great and break seemed to fly by.




    Those three weeks went by in the blink of an eye and before long I found myself in the bookstore, gearing up for a new semester of classes. The first day back went well, I really like all my teachers and classes so far and I’m looking forward to a great semester! I already signed up for the back to school beach trip this weekend, which I’m super excited about mostly because we’ll be going to the beach in January. The March for Life is also coming up soon. A bunch of my friends and I are going with the Ave group and we can’t wait to head up to DC to save the babies!

    Like most people, I’ve made some New Years resolutions that I’m determined to work hard to keep this semester. For example, I want to go to daily mass and adoration more often, I want to keep my workout schedule consistent, and I especially want to procrastinate less and stay on top of all my work. So far, so good!
