In the last blog, I was telling you about the amount of schoolwork I had. I tell you with much joy and relief that all tests are done. Well, for the most part. I have one more test this week in Business Law, but one test is not too much to worry about. After that, spring break begins. I am flying down to New Orleans right after my three o’clock class on Friday to visit my brother, and then flying to New Jersey to spend the remainder of my break with my family at home. I am very excited.
A very popular activity on campus is intramural sports. We have four intramurals throughout the academic year: football, volleyball, basketball, and ultimate Frisbee. Football and volleyball are during the fall semester, while basketball and Frisbee are during the spring semester. Right now, we are currently playing basketball. We have just finished the regular season and playoffs are about to begin. My team is doing very well so far; we only have one loss. I think we will have one playoff game before spring break and then the championship will be right after we get back. Hopefully, we can keep up this winning record and win it all.
In my last blog, I talked about mind, body, and spirit. I like that theme, so I’m going to stick with it. We already covered the mind with academics and the body with intramurals, so now it’s time for the spirit. This past weekend, we had a Festival of Praise on campus. Commonly referred to as “FOPs”, these festivals are times when anyone can come together in the Finnegan Fieldhouse on campus to praise the Lord. They happen once a month and are very popular. The one we just had had a Lenten theme of calling to mind our “deserts” that we are walking through, all the while keeping in mind that Christ is walking with us through this time. It was a very beautiful night to come together with the Body of Christ in that way and praise the Lord during this time of purification, continual conversion, and anticipation for the Resurrection.
Life has been great here on campus. The semester is going by so fast; I cannot believe it is already spring break. It’s crazy how fast time goes by. It has been very enjoyable and I am excited to see what the rest of it holds. I look forward to sharing some more experiences with you.
Talk to you soon,
