First off, classes began. I LOVE school and can't believe that this is my last year. While I know I will never stop learning, being in an academic setting is something I will miss terribly (as well as being so close to all of my friends). Another thing I will miss? The incredible views on my campus. The sunsets I have been able to enjoy this semester are unrivaled.
As I've mentioned before, yoga is an exercise that I have a lot of fun with and is challenging (check out these free resources I've rounded up). I went to a beautiful garden for a yoga class, plus went to the beach with my CA friends (community advisors, like RAs at other schools) where I got to do even more yoga. It's an important way for me to keep my mind and body healthy, and I can't recommend it enough!
Being a senior means that all of my friends are now 21(!) and we can go out together. Dancing is a favorite activity of mine (especially with my bestie Nina) and getting to spend the night doing so with my friends is a joy! I do have the whole "work hard, play hard" mentality, which means that while I am having a good time going out I am also attending to business. My business fraternity, PSE, hosted a sales competition and it was great to help the event run smoothly. It was tough to be a coach instead of competitor (it's just in my nature!), but no matter what I am happy when sales is involved.
This year I am working as a CA in sophomore housing, which means that my room is so. much. nicer. I have air conditioning, and wifi, and my own bathroom (all things that I haven't had for the past three years), making me feel like a princess everyday. I also felt like a (n American) princess when I got to meet a John Adams impersonator. I was seriously so excited because John Adams is and always will be the love of my life.
Even though John is the love of my life, a close second is Ben Franklin. I got to see this painting in the MET and it was spectacular. The guy who took me to go see it is pretty cool too ;)
Once the fall weather FINALLY arrived I went with my PSE friends to a fall festival (aka just an excuse to have an autumn themed photo shoot). The festivities continued when I went down to Virginia for my uncle's wedding. It's absolutely wild how much my brother has grown up and I can hardly believe he is taller than me!
So, that's life lately. New and fun things are continually happening and I can't wait for the rest of the semester!
How has your fall been? What's been a fun event that you've attended?
