I am currently on winter break and loving it. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Since I last blogged alot has happened. My last final was on December 15th, so I was on campus until the very last day, not to mention the fact that I got really sick . However, the campus was nearly empty and I got to spend the last moments with some of my friends. We exchanged gifts and had a great laugh. It seemed that the day before finals everyone was not letting the stress get to them and having a great time. A group of us were studying and laughing the night away on Friday. It was refreshing to see the smiles on everyones face especially since everyone had been so tense from taking exams! I am proud to say that I survived Holy Cross Exam week and lived to tell about it!
Now I am on break! We celebrated Christmas this year at my house. We went to Christmas Eve mass where after four months apart I saw my best friend! It was a joyous occasion. I love going to Mass during the holidays because there is only peace, happiness, and joy filling the air. After mass we had dinner at my house and stayed up until midnight opening gifts. I must say Santa was very generous this year! On actual Christmas Day we had family and friends come over for Christmas dinner. I absolutely LOVE food so the sight of turkey, chicken, mashed potatoes, stuffing, rice, and pecan pie gave me a great big smile!!!! Oh and I can not forget the basketball games on television. CONGRATS to THE HEAT!!!!
Now that Christmas is over I have New Year’s Eve to look forward to and that will surely be a blast. My family and I are going to visit with relatives in New York and plan on going to the city to spend New Years! I am so excited because there is nothing like family and friends to bring in 2013! Hopefully next year will be just as great as this year!
Besides the holidays, break has been a time to reconnect with high school friends. One of my good friends attends a University in Arizona so this was the first time I have seen her in a long time! We met up in town and went to visit our old elementary school. It was great to see old teachers, and our principal and see how much the school has changed. It was a walk through memory lane.
That’s all I have for now, but can’t wait to update you all about the rest of my break!
