That is most certainly an exaggeration, but it is currently 47 degrees out...and after months of frigid temperatures, this feels like heaven! I made a new playlist this morning in honor of my first outdoor walk, which I just got back from. It was great! Campus is really alive today and despite the fact that there is still some dirty snow on the ground and puddles covering most of the sidewalk, everyone is ready to get out and get started on some beautiful weather!
Lots of little things to report today...I am about to start getting ready to go to my friend Sarah's senior art show...she is a double major in art and psychology and has her gallery opening today. I can't wait! Last night was Friday Knight Dry, a campus event with tons of stuff going on. I participated in a scavenger hunt, went to a luau, answered SMC Jeopardy-style questions and listened to our two campus a Capella groups perform, all to earn Monopoly money for an auction at midnight! My sister and I pooled our money together and bid on a gift certificate to Papa Franks (an Italian restaurant just down the street from campus). They had some other pretty amazing prizes...gift certificates, iPods, a Nintendo DS, video games, lava lamps and a bunch of other stuff. It was a fun night!
This week will actually be pretty calm with the exception of my departure for the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC on Saturday!!!! I am beyond excited...we have been planning for the trip for almost a year and I can't wait to go to a place that I've never been before, enjoy the warm weather (80? OK!!) and do some really fulfilling service. I love airports and flying, so I am almost as excited about getting there as actually being there! We are leaving bright and early Saturday (we meet in the MOVE office at 4 am...I might not be as excited at that exact moment...) and return late the following Saturday. I know that it is going to be amazing and I can't wait!
That's all for now, hope you are having weather like we are!
