Finals got me like…
I am typing this at midnight after a long day of studying, but honestly, I have nothing to complain about. Finals always suck, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. Instead, let’s look at the positive things that happened last week. Theme: How can it be…?
How can it be that I’m going home in five days?
How can it be that my best friend gave me the most thoughtful Christmas gift in all the land? Rachel put together a beautiful scrapbook consisting of letters written by all my friends here at college, as well as family and friends from home.
too many emotions!!!
I love you, Rachel! ♥︎ And thank you so much, friends who contributed!
How can it be that Christmas is less than two weeks away?
How can it be that friends who I’ve known for a year or less have become like family?
How can it be that my engineering friends are so brilliant?

How can it be that my friend Emma and I made it to the roof of the Arts and Sciences building before 10AM on Thursday?
How can it be that my friends and I survived skating without falling on our butts?
How can it be that Mr. Bartley’s Burger Cottage delivered into my life everything I needed and more on Saturday night? It took Rachel and me 1.5 hours to get to this place (unexpectedly), we were hangry and fading, and I was dead tired. By the grace of God we made it to the restaurant and this meal made all things right.
pumpkin pie frappe (milkshake)! there were graham cracker pieces.
“iPhone burger” with boursin cheese, grilled onions, mushrooms, lettuce, and tomato + sweet potato fries (p.s. crushed that burger)
How can it be that the dining hall spoils me too?
African sweet potato, peas, and lentils
holiday dinner night: herbed chicken with apricot pomegranate sauce, sweet potatoes, and green beans
BBQ lentil “meatball” sub
baked fish with mashed sweet potatoes and sautéed kale
salad from the food court
How can it be that my friends are so hilarious?
How can it be that my brain and body are still functioning right now?
How can it be that God is so good to us “squishy mortals” (← favorite phrase ever via Geraldine)?
There is nothing more attractive in the world than my bed, so I’m gonna go there now.
Hope you all have a fantastic week ahead! This time of year is stressful for nearly everyone, but I hope you find some light in the darkness 🙂
So tell me:
How can it be that…(insert something wonderful)?
What is the best burger you’ve ever eaten?
