Thanksgiving is a great time of year. It provides a brief rest from the hectic college life, and helps to remind us (me) of everything I have to be thankful for. I am home, and Turkey Day is tomorrow! It feels so good to be home.
I am now a sophomore at Covenant College, and I am enjoying every minute of it. Life is very busy. I am taking 18 credit hours this semester. I don’t recommend it. For the 2nd fall in a row, I decided to run with the school cross-country team. I love running, and enjoy every minute I am on the XC trails. However, because I have been so busy with school this fall – not to mention the 12 hours of work study I also have, things became a little too hectic, and I decided to drop off of the team so that I could focus more on school and other things that were important.
This fall has been a lot of fun. I now know have experience with college, and I have been able to meet and encourage a lot of freshmen this year. I decided to work on the school’s Orientation Team this year, so I got the opportunity to help the freshmen and transfer students move in this fall and welcome them to Covenant College. It was a very hard job – especially the actual week of orientation (1 week before classes started) but it has been very rewarding.
As Thanksgiving approaches, I have so much to be thankful for. I go to a school where I have the closest friends I have ever had in my life. My teachers and professors care for me. I have a home to come back to where I can eat good home cooking. And, most importantly, I have a savior, Jesus Christ, who loves me more than I can imagine.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
