It’s strange to think that I’ll be coming home for Christmas in a little over a month. This semester has gone by so quickly, and these past few weeks were no exception. After a busy week of midterms and presentations, we went to 4th Ave last week to do a bit of Christmas shopping. It seemed a little warm at 80 degrees, but it was a lot of fun. Not to mention, there was the costume contest in Astronomy Club and the Night in Azkaban where one of the dorms had been turned into Hogwarts from Harry Potter. They had some really cool decorations, and although we weren’t there for long, it was a lot of fun.
This week started with little pouches of candy sitting outside every door in the hall. I’ve had all the candy I could want this week from professors, events, and really just being on campus. On the 31st, I went to Spanish class as Captain Picard then met up with some friends for a Halloween treat of ice cream. Then yesterday, I went to Biosphere 2 as a part of my Honors Catalyst class. Since we were only there for a few hours, we could not see everything, but my group went through the rainforest and beach biomes both of which were awesome! The whole idea behind the Biosphere is cool, and in visiting Tucson, I think it is a must-see.
This week I’ll mostly be keeping up with classes and finishing what projects I can before Thanksgiving. It will be strange not to be home for that, but I’m excited to see everyone at Christmas, which will be here very soon!
Until next time ~
