Saturday, March 11th, I caught the train with my friend, Alex, who came home with me for break (again)!
We left campus around 9:45am, and went to McDonald's. It was -6 degrees Fahrenheit, with a "real feel" temperature of -35. What a way to be starting "Spring Break," right? We got to the station at 10:20, thinking that the train was going to be there at 10:25. We tried to call it close, because nobody wants to wait at a crowded station, and nobody wants to wait in the cold for too long, either. We finally boarded the train at 11:15am; almost an hour late. Once on board the train, I slept. I had pulled an all nighter the night before because a friend of mine needed a ride to the air port, and none of my other friends were willing to drive him (I borrowed someone's car, as I don't have my own). Nothing too exciting happened for the duration of the ride. We arrived in Maryland around 10:28, only one minute later than scheduled (which was surprising, considering that it was almost an hour behind when it picked us up in Vermont). My mom took us to Wawa (which made me super happy), and then took us to get some real food, at IHOP.
I know that it isn't anything too interesting, but if you are interested in seeing my Snapchat story, you can watch it here: Download Spring break snapchat story (I tried to get it to show up, but it's only giving me this link. If you don't watch it, no big deal- I just took random pictures and put the GeoFilters on them so my friends knew where I was at.)
Monday evening, my aunt Lee passed away. Friday night, before break, I got word that she had been put back in the hospital on Thursday night due to weak muscles and lack of vitamins in her blood. We all believed that she would be fine, as she had pulled through this before. Monday, after running my errands for my mom and sister, Mom got the call that she needed to get to the hospital ASAP. Sadly, we did not make it in time. Aunt Lee, or as I called her, "Momma Lee," donated her body to science, so there will not be a service until the state is done with their research.
The rest of the week was uphill. I met with my best friend, Adrianna, I bought an adorable new pair of high heels (see picture below), and I started playing Sims 3. When I wasn't out and about, I was getting some much needed, certainly deserved sleep.
Wednesday night, I went to a Norwich Alumni Networking Event in Arlington, VA. It was a blast. I met with interesting Almuni of all ages. One man was the class of 1969. A woman was class of 1997 and 1999.
If any of you would like me to elaborate, please leave a comment!
