Well, it’s official…freshman year of college is over! After finishing my last exam, I spent the night before and the morning of move out day doing some of my favorite things at college.
Last night of freshman year
I spent the last night of the year hanging out and eating ice cream with these wonderful friends until the early hours of the morning. We’re party animals, I tell ya.We were (okay, maybe mostly I was) cracking up over this 6-second clip:
Watch it a couple times and tell me if you DON’T laugh. It’s impossible!
How could I spend my last morning at school doing anything other than waking up for an early run with my airplane friend?
Here’s proof that running wakes you up like nothing else can. This was us before our run:And this was us after our 6 mile run:The lighting’s a little different, but wow– those endorphins work some magic! Laughing and running are good for the soul.
And I guess it was my last time using my dorm key/shoelace trick for a while.
After I got back from my run, it was time to pack. Thankfully, my parents were there to help do lots of the heavy lifting.In a few hours, my room went from looking like this…
…to looking like this.
It may’ve just been a dorm room with a leaky floor, the occasional cockroaches, and a shower so loud that the water sounded like it was coming through our wall at all hours of the night, but it felt like home. I loved everything from the big window that let lots of natural light in to the Christmas ornament that my roommate hung from the smoke detector to be our very own “disco ball” (hah).
I’m planning on doing lots of cooking while I’m home, but last night, my mom made one of my favorite meals for a belated Cinco de Mayo dinner: Mexican chicken with a spicy black bean and tomato sauce. Yum!
And afterwards, I babysat some of my favorite kiddos. I traced their outlines on the pavement (remember doing that?!) and they turned themselves into Rapunzel and her prince. So precious. I can’t wait to do lots of babysitting while I’m home for the next couple of weeks.
Questions for you:
Did you eat Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo?
I didn’t somehow, so last night’s dinner helped make up for that!
Do you/did you ever babysit?
Are you a nostalgic person?
