I never thought this semester would end. That’s a lie. It kind of went by way too fast. But kind of slow. Whatever–It’s December and I don’t believe it. One more semester left of graduate school and then I have to turn into a grown-up. Gross.
I was thinking back on the past semester and came up with a ‘Top Five’ list. Here are some fantastic highlights (in no particular order)
1) Hokie Camp
How could this not be a highlight? I stayed at Hokie Camp all three sessions and it was amazing. I played a ton of dodgeball (and wasn’t very good at it)
And I spent a ridiculous amount of time with these fools.
And I loved every second of it. Now that I think of it, I should have just written “work” as one of my Top Five. I work in the BEST office ever with the BEST people ever. There’s never a dull moment. Oy. I graduate in 5 months. I’m getting all emotional. On to the next…
2) I ran. A lot.
This semester I did a Tough Mudder…probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
…and then ran a marathon a few weeks later.
Then ran with Brit in her FIRST 5K on Thanksgiving…she did awesome!
It’s scary to think about the total number of miles I ran this semester. But my next marathon is in March if anyone wants to join…
3) Flag Football Championship
If I talk to you on a regular basis, you are well-aware that my co-rec flag football team, Show Me the Money, won the Advanced Championship. Yeah. We’re a big deal.
That’s a terrible picture. But I had a blast playing…when I wasn’t being tackled bt the other teams. Or getting stepped on with cleats.
4) Beautiful People
I hung out with some absolutely wonderful people this semester. I wouldn’t have made it through without them.
Here we are freezing at the Thursday night game.
And some of us at the Hideous Christmas Sweater Party
I don’t even want to think about not seeing them on a regular basis when I graduate. Ugh, I’m getting emotional again.. Gross.
5) Ridiculous Stories
And seriously, I really don’t know how crazy stuff happens to me, but it does. I mean, how many people get told by Santa on Bourbon Street during Halloween that they are a “bad bad girl“? Or get sprayed by a skunk? Or get hit by a car in a cross walk? Or pay money to put themselves through a Tough Mudder and Marathon? I am a mess.
Now that I’m actually writing this, I realize that I ton of great stuff happened this semester….Making a ‘Top Five’ doesn’t do it justice. Oh well.
I’m headed for New York City for a few days before heading to Texas. Hopefully I’ll come back with some good stories…wish me luck!!
