This past weekend I slipped away from campus to go home for Easter. Besides Greyhound’s notoriously late service, the time home was great. While I was home I was able to spend time with my family and my church family and we laughed, danced, ate, and had a generally good time. I managed to not get a single thing checked off of my to-do list but I am okay with that.
It gets really easy to become overwhelmed with school work and activities, especially as we get closer to the end of the semester. It always seems like papers appear out of nowhere and everyone wants to meet with you at all hours of the day. So, every now and then I have to go home and get rejuvenated so that I can jump back into all of the homework and meetings that my college life has become. Being at home gives me time to step back and I love every minute of it, then I come back to Bryn Mawr and start all over again.
