I hope y’all had a great week. It’s always strange coming back from break, isn’t it? I wish I had slept more, read more and watched more Netflix. Oh, well. Time will come for that during the Winter Break. Right now, all I’ve been doing is cramming for all of my final exams. It’s been hectic.
Campus Activities Board hosted a No Stress Zone event where they basically had a bunch of de-stressing activities. I was there taking pictures for CAB, but I also got to enjoy their activities (and food!) They had board games, coloring pictures and even a special appearance from Murphy, the school’s therapy dog! I love him so much. He was so happy to be there! He ran around, playing with all the attendees.
The UHCL Police came by and gave out free stuffed animals! I got my own puppy plush. I named him Mylo. It’s been a week full of anxiety, and having Mylo to hug has actually helped reduce that anxiety significantly.
On Wednesday, the Student Life Office hosted their most memorable tradition: Lighting of the Letters! It’s a holiday-themed event, where we all get together to watch the UHCL letters on the hill light up in blue and green. Even Hunter was there! There were also some great performances from UHCL’s Spirit Squad, Fusion Dance and Music Club. It was a lovely event, especially because they gave out hot chocolate and cider.
On Friday, I finally decided it was time to do some serious studying. Of course, I didn’t actually do any studying until Saturday night. That’s just how it usually goes, isn’t it? I’ll keep y’all posted on how my exams go.
Until next time, Hawks!
