Springing Into 22S
Another 12 hours of somewhat tiring travel, here I am again. But now there is a freshness to the air. There seems to be dozens upon dozens of new faces I have not seen before. Everyone seems to be refreshed (after a well deserved) spring break. And I am more ready than ever for this term to seriously begin!
Although my classes are bringing me plenty of joy, my friends bring even more good times! After my plane arrived, I instantly went to hug my friends and catch up with them after our breaks. Some friends stayed at home with families like I did, but others traveled either for fun or even with their teammates to practice in different parts of the country. This weekend I celebrated one of my friend's birthdays with a Saturday filled with random plans. After getting a nice lunch, I went to the Women's Tennis match and supported another one of my friends competing. After the match, I eventually went to Boloco (a Mexican restaurant in town) and then continued to hang out with my friends by having a powerpoint night for fun to laugh at our friendships.
This week has reminded me that sometimes taking a break to change your pace can bring a beautiful, refreshing view. I feel ready to conquer this term. I feel ready to appreciate the little things. Whether it is my friend laughing at a bad dad joke or embarrassing myself in front of a crowd, I am ready for this Spring term to enjoy. There definitely is something in the air here in Hanover. And it is refreshing.
