We have made it to another Friday friends! Congratulations!
Today feels like a sigh- like the campus has been holding its breath for two weeks and finally exhaled a little. The Friday buzz of activity has risen and sleep deprived students are looking forward to a few minutes of freedom following the first midterm season- right after a loooong nap. I think it is summed up well by a comment from my sweet friend Meredith, who was sharing with me about her weekend plans- “I am so excited to sleep- is that weird?”
I am posted up in a corner of our student union, by Alpine Bagel Shop. I feel like sitting here says, “I have work to do, but I am open to hanging out instead.” The past few weeks have definitely been library and top of the union weeks, but Alpine is hopping today. Its nice to see students get a little moment to rest. I think I also just have a special love for Alpine this week because one of the workers, upon observing my slightly rotten banana, brought me a fresh yellow banana to replace it, free of charge!
So here is to Alpine, the land of yummy (but slightly pricey) bagels, an overly noisy drink fountain, semi-studious college students, and friendly, generous strangers.
I hope this Friday marks a day of rest for you as well. Happy Friday!
OH- and if you notice my little computer screen- I had the privilege of hanging my first art show at Earth Fare in Brier Creek this morning, AND being featured on the sheheartsit.com blog! Check it out! What a wonderfully blessed day 🙂
