I honestly cannot fathom how quickly this semester is coming to a close. As I sat attempting to write my final essay for a philosophy class I felt the procrastination building. What to do I thought? I perused pinterest (something I had barely known about the last time I actually wrote on Miscellanea) and then decided it was time to update.
Here is a brief recap on the semester:
I became a sister of the Theta Kappa Chapter of Alpha Phi at University of Rochester and have already met the most amazing girls that I am proudly able to call my sisters.
I said goodbye to my best friend and first dog Greta (Bunny) who lived an amazing grouchy life constantly scaring away my friends.
Brendan and I went to my friend Sarah's Wedding in Upstate, NY which was absolutely beautiful.
I spent hours making these AMAZING irish car bomb cupcakes for miss. Maureen's birthday
Which we later celebrated with many desserts and a great dinner out with her friends from school.
Spring flowers finally sprouted (and then froze again).
I visited Brendan numerous times all which included some pretty delicious meals. (whole wheat pasta, tomatoes, greek olives, capers, feta, basil)
and most recently, friends from home came to visit for a night out!
While the semester as a whole has been one of the best yet and I have met some of the most influential people that have had a wonderful impact on my life, I have yet to explain the best part.
From June to July (this coming summer) I will be in Cape Town, South Africa! While in Cape Town I will be taking course while spending 16-20 hours weekly in clinics, hospice facilities and rural AIDS clinics working with the locals while learning their healthcare system.
I cannot wait to share these experiences with my friends and family through photographs and writing!
Further updates for the coming weeks:
1. Ballet Performance Group spring show, this friday
2. First D-DAY weekend, next weekend
3. My mom and I will run a 5k together next weekend as well
4. Summer begins!
