Thanksgiving week was a short one at Palmer. We had classes until Wednesday, and then we were all headed off to break! Thankfully (hehehehe), we only had one exam this week- Immunology! Overall, it wasn’t too bad.
Joey had to work on Thanksgiving, so we weren’t able to go home on Thanksgiving, but Palmer had a free Thanksgiving dinner for students who couldn’t go home. It was great! The food was amazing and it was really nice to have something to do on Thanksgiving.
I also went out and planned some Black Friday shopping. I told you how I built that faux fireplace with my dad, right? Well, I found some electric logs (with a heater) on sale. WAHOO! Now I have a real fireplace. 🙂 It looks great, and I love that it actually gives off some heat now. I also started to decorate the apartment for Christmas. It’s my favorite time of year. 🙂
Then finally on Friday afternoon we were able to go home. I brought my friend from the rugby team, Debbie, home with us, too! She is from California, and I didn’t want her to miss out on this! So we brought her home and put her to work. 🙂 Little did she know she would be stuffing the turkey and helping to put up the Christmas tree. But she loved it, and I’m glad I was able to show her a Midwestern Thanksgiving. 🙂
Before we knew it, it was already Sunday and we had to drive back to Davenport. Debbie and I also had to study for a Microbiology test. Thankfully, we got home around 5 p.m., so we still had some time to unwind from the drive and study for a bit.
On a completely different note, the rugby team went to New York City to compete in a 7’s tournament – where the team plays 15-minute games with seven people. I wasn’t able to go because I’m still out with my broken finger, but that worked out perfectly so I could spend time with family. 🙂 But the girls did great! They met a couple different celebrities and explored the city! They also took home the plate in the tournament! Wahoo! Go Palmer! Now we are on a little break over the winter until our next tournament in Las Vegas.
What am I going to do with all this “free time” now?? Maybe I’ll start a new series on Netflix … hehehe
