Hey Guys! It’s been a while since I’ve past posted, and so much has happened since!
This term, I’m taking History 215: The European Century. And as we approach the last few weeks of school (It’s almost summer!!!) there’s the last bit of work to do. I’ve been working hard on our last History Research Paper, one where we have room to explore Europe on the verge of World War I. As you can see, the books are piling! As I stare out my dorm room window writing my paper, I notice the days getting longer and longer and more beautiful. This past winter was brutal; now we can finally kick back, relax, and enjoy the sun. My friends and I took a little excursion out to the river last weekend; we explored town, ate out (there are many good restaurants within walking distance at Exeter), bought ice cream and strolled along the river’s banks. It was a beautiful night to be outside, a drastic change from the scenery back home in Vegas! At Exeter, your weekends are never boring, as there is always something to do.
I’ll be eternally grateful to Sam ’16 who bought us all coffee and donuts for English class the past week! We had just finished our biggest English essay to date called the Roots paper; in it, you would describe a story passed down in your family from generation to generation and how it has affected you personally. We decided to take an 8:00 AM class easily by bringing in Dunkin Donuts to read all of our essays. Here’s a picture of my English Class with Ms. Desmond.
Lower year had gone by so very fast; it feels as if move-in day was just a few weeks ago. We all look forward to a bright and safe summer. I’ll post next month of Exeter’s ESSO Service trip to Costa Rica, of which I’m so excited for! As this year comes to a close, I can’t hope but reminisce of the memories I’ve made in such a short timespan; you learn to take Exeter day-by-day, enjoy the work you do around the Harkness table, and be amazed at the friends and connections you make along the way. All in all, Not bad at all.
