Well, friends, the end of CNU’s Snowmaggedon is quickly approaching. I am so grateful for the past day and a half of relaxation, actual time to finish homework assignments, and all the movies I could dream of watching, but I am ready to get back in the classroom (and I don’t want to make up too many of these snow days when May rolls around). I’ve been enjoying the classes I’m in this semester, and I don’t mind waking up kind of early (9 a.m.’s are “early” for me) or staying out kind of late (6 p.m. classes feel so much later than they actually are) to learn.
Plus, I volunteer in the Newport News Public Schools; if our school is closed, there’s a good chance their schools are closed. That means I miss out on seeing my four-year-olds’ and third graders’ smiling faces for the week.
Don’t get me wrong – I did my happy dance just like all the other students when I got the text alert about classes being canceled. In fact, I danced all the way back to my apartment on East Campus. My room celebrated by making hot chocolate and settling in for the latest installment of “The Bachelor” – all good things! But, I’m ready to get back to my normal routine, see my class friends and learn a little bit! Happy last (most likely?) Snow Day, Captains!
