A Weekend of Family Fun

Even after being away from home for a few months, you still make time to welcome your parents to your home away from home. While having your parents on campus, as much as they want to spend time in your room and see how you live, there’s plenty of ways to take them off campus and still spend quality time with them.

However, as you start talking, they no longer seem like strangers but rather best friends that you've known...

Holiday In Guatemala Pt. 2

Hello everyone and welcome to the second part of my Holiday in Guatemala post. Since this will be my last post before we get down to real business again, I have decided to give you a fun view of how I spent my New Year’s Eve. My entire family and I went to Antigua Guatemala to welcome the New Year. Antigua means “old” in Spanish, and, as you might have guessed, it is the old city of Guatemala. The city was moved from its original...

My First White Christmas

For Christmas this year, my sister and I went up to Boston, Massachusetts, to spend a few days with our brother and sister-in-law.  We had our very first white Christmas!  My favorite things to do are to hang out with my family and watch movies while eating warm, hearty food, and play board games after dinner.  This Christmas I have been able to relax with my siblings and enjoy the food that my sister-in-law cooked for us. Earlier in...
