thanksgiving break thus far

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

I love being home.
I love being in a place I know, I remember, I have fond memories of, and a place I feel completely confortable in.

Westmont falls into much of those categories, but hey - at least my cat is here.

It's Tuesday night, I'm lounging on my couch watching Transformers 2 with my cat, after a lazy day consisting of a lot of homework. It seems like that is much of what break is going to look like for the upcoming days - homework, errands, and finalizing some details for the upcoming months.

Don't get me wrong, I'm so excited to be back at school. I think my favorite part of the school year may be the few short weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas break. It's the holiday season all over campus, students can listen to Christmas music with no reservations, Pickle Tree lighting, dorm events, and hot chocolate everywhere. Minus finals week - it's the way I wish college could be all the time. But alas, I only get two weeks (three if you count finals) to enjoy it, so I plan on making the most out of it while I can.

Tomorrow brings more homework, a trip to Wal Mart to pick up a few much needed items and scope the layout for black friday madness, maybe a bit of baking, and some cleaning to get done before the big day hits. Anyway, here are a few snapshots of thanksgiving break thus far. Enjoy!
