Hello, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing Easter break — maybe with friends and family and/or doing something you enjoy. I (as usual) had tons of homework to do, but I did enjoy an Easter lunch with my dad’s family (got to see my two young cousins, always adorable and entertaining!) and an Easter egg hunt with my horses! They each found six eggs filled with clover, carrots, or marshmallows, and of course they loved it immensely. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, my horses are spoiled. 🙂
If you’ve read my past blogs, you’ll know this semester has been quite a bit different than last semester. At 18 hours, commuting, working, and just trying to stay afloat, it’s been stressful to say the least. The upcoming two weeks probably aren’t going to be much different, but I do feel better going into these final weeks than I thought I would at the beginning of the semester. I have three labs to wrap up, a presentation/report to give, lots of homework, and studying galore for finals, but then before I know it, it will all be over! Fortunately, I don’t have more than one final on any given day, so it won’t be too unbearable (I hope), and by May 6 at 11:59 p.m., I must have completed everything with my online class and will be done with my second semester of college. It’s hard to believe that when I return in August, I’ll be a sophomore. Note to self: time flies by much faster than you think!
Good luck to everyone with finals…hang in there, you’re just a hop, skip, and a jump away!
Spring has arrived and so did Easter! Another holiday has quickly approached and passed. It was nice having a little Easter break (Thursday, Friday, the weekend, and the following Monday!). I feel like I’ve done a lot in the last few days. Of course I continued to work at my two jobs, and spent time on that thing called homework. But I also made time for fun!
My best friend from high school is in town, so we had dinner together two nights in a row. Also, FAB members and I saw MKTO in concert. We were in the front row, right in the middle! It was so nice outside, and it was a great show. During our FAB exec retreat last summer, we declared the song “Classic” by MKTO our official jam. Therefore, it was an absolute blast seeing this live. And then, of course Easter was nice as well. A couple days before, I dyed eggs with my cousins. And I got to see nearly everyone the day of. Nothing beats eating a big homemade meal with your family. See below for pictures of my eventful little Easter break!
Beginning my Easter break a little early last week, I went to a concert of one of my favorite performers, Gavin Degraw. Surprisingly, he didn’t make a stop in St. Louis on the current tour, but he did visit the town of Effingham, Illinois. Most people have probably never heard of the town, but being from Southern Illinois I knew right where it was at. A couple hours drive from St. Louis, I made my way there Wednesday after interning, class, and a meeting.
I was joining my concert buddy Jessi for the night. We always to to concerts together, especially Gavin Degraw’s. It was great to see her, eat some good food and catch up at the local pub, and then dance to the music all night long. Rozzi Crane, Parachute, and Gavin were performing that night. Jessi and I had great seats, but we rushed to the stage during the second band’s performance. Being so close to the stage for amazing performances was the only way to spend that night. I even ran into a friend from high school. All in all, it was a successfully fun evening, and a great way to kick off Easter break!
Thanks for reading..
Last weekend was Easter break, it was a good time for students because they got a one week break, and it was also a good time to think about how Jesus Christ died for us on the cross, then he was risen.
It was my first Easter here, and I joined the traditional Good Friday service and Easter Sunday service at Grace Church, St. Louis. I spent many times to think about Jesus’s death on Good Friday, and prayed with God. I like to spend time praying and studying the bible, which can let me be renewed by God.
Here is one of verses for celebrating the Easter Day. Take time to think about it:
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3)
