It’s already week seven up here at PUC! I’m a senior theology major and so, with this being my last year, I wish that the time would go by a little bit slower in terms of my college life. I’m ready to get out and do what I have been practicing up here, but at the same time I don’t want to leave PUC or the friends that I have made. I have been helping out in a couple of the campus ministries this year and it will be sad to leave those so quickly; especially when they have had such a big impact on my life.

Thanksgiving break is just next week. I know a lot of people have been studying so hard up here and a break is the perfect thing right now. I’m excited to see my family again and I’ve got plenty of things to be thankful for this year. I’m thankful for family, friends, PUC, food (I eat a lot), our savior Christ, and many more. I would go on but the list would get insane and I wouldn’t want to leave out crucial things; so I’ll leave it at five.

This past Tuesday was Election Day and I have to say, I’ve never seen so many comments on Facebook and around campus about how important it is to vote in a presidential election. There were people talking about it in line at the café, on their way to classes, in classes, in the dorms. It was the talk of the day and every TV on campus had CNN going showing the stats of the election. And, naturally, the place exploded with conversations when Obama won. I could hear people screaming and chanting as they were running down Newton Hall. And then despite everything I’ve said, and the excitement that people showed on Tuesday, there was not one sign of the election the next day. It was apparently a thing of the past that no longer needed to be discussed. I found it entertaining. Oh, how I love the people of PUC.

Well, it’s Thursday as I write this, so I think I need to start my homework since everything is always due on Friday. It has been a lot of fun talking and I’m sure we will be able to chat at least one more time before I graduate. See you later!
