Friends and Warm Weather

Friday night, after almost a semester and a half of saying I would do so, I decided to decorate my room! Well, part of it at least.

I spent one the last days of winter break shopping and browsing stores such as TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, Marshalls etc. in search of some cute wall decor for my dorm! I could walk around HomeGoods for hours; there are so many photos, paintings, frames and word art I would love to own. Nonetheless, after some decision making, I bought a 3 piece set which included the words “Be Kind, Be Positive , Be Courageous.” I stuck those on my walls as soon as I returned to school and now, finally, the wall space above my desk is filled!


These are only a number of the many photos I decided to order; I’m still not sure how I’ll utilize the rest. Maybe I’ll put them in an album.

After a relaxing Friday night, Saturday was definitely more exciting. Not only was it a gorgeous day (the temperature reached 60 degrees!) but one of my best friends from home came up for a visit. She couldn’t have picked a better day. Tons of students were out and about, drinking Starbucks outside or playing sports on the green.

Sabrina and I decided to stay on campus for lunch and munched on Chick-Fil-A when she first arrived. I gave her a mini tour of the U as we passed and walked through different buildings; she was so impressed! She couldn’t believe how friendly everyone was. As I said to my friends, I was incredibly excited to have to Sabrina not only because I would be able to see one of my best friends for the first time in a month, but because she would have the “Scranton experience” for a weekend! We walked into town later that night, enjoyed a delicious hibachi dinner at Osaka and headed back to Condron and watched a few episodes of our favorite show “Jane the Virgin.” As stuffed as we were after Osaka, we couldn’t help taking a walk over to Good Fellas around midnight to grab some pizza. Sabrina and I had such a great time together; if only she could come to Scranton too!

Overall, my weekend was relaxing, which was definitely much needed. The work this semester is really starting to pick up and that means, as usual, tons of papers, exams and readings! Can’t wait to see what the week has in store for me. 🙂
