Last week was midterm week meaning we only had three days of class before (Monday , Tuesday and Wednesday) school let out for Fall Break (WOOT).
As you can imagine, it was a very stressful time not just this week but last week! A lot of professors gave exams or assigned huge essays that would be a big portion of your midterm grade. It was a stressful time but luckily I was quite relieved when midterm grades were posted Thursday!
However, after my last class Wednesday before heading home, my friends and I decided we needed to do something fun after all our hard work put in that week. So we headed to the movies! Being a Wednesday afternoon it was nice and empty. We hadn’t really gone with a movie in mind to watch. So we narrowed it down to two and then rock-paper-scissored over it. House at the End of the Street won!
After watching it, I kinda wished Pitch Perfect would of won but we didn’t really care too much – we just wanted to think about anything but school for a while. After the movie, we headed towards Barbourville (which is my roommate and I’s hometown but we had a friend who had never been there), where it was the first night of the annual Daniel Boone Festival.
Not all the rides were up and running and they didn’t have any live entertainment like they usually do, but we mostly planned to meet up with some of our best buds from high school. Hanging out with the gang again for the first time since before I moved into the dorms was GREAT! I’ve missed them soo much and it felt like no time had passed. Before departing my friend Sid (who works at Wendy’s) did hook us up with a bunch of coupons for free frostys. So we grabbed some of those before heading home.
It was really exciting getting to talk to my mom about school and showing her my grades. It always feels really rewarding to talk about school whenever I come home. Then the rest of that week was filled with much needed rest and relaxation. Along with a couple nights out with friends at the festival, of course! That’s why its such a big deal in a town where pretty much nothing ever happens. It’s like one giant family reunion, you run into everybody you have ever known. I also got to see one of my former teacher who is expecting her first child in the next couple of weeks!
Overall it was a pretty good Fall Break, but now it’s back to the good ol’ college life filled with homework, instant ramen, lack of sleep and full of memories !
