Another semester has been completed. Only 3 more semesters left of college, 2 at Saint Mike's and 1 in Coleraine, Ireland. Saying some see you laters last week to my best friends put a lot of things into perspective. I won't be seeing most of them until August since I'm studying abroad next semester. Definitely a lot of emotions going through my mind as I have less than a month at home before I go to Ireland for 5 months.
With lots of free time at home, I decided to keep up with my tradition of doing some of my top memories from the year (or in this case, the semester).
- Hanging out with my SMC family. Without writing a crazy long novel (because I could go on and on about how great everyone is), this is how the section can best be summed up-- great times and wonderful people.

- MJD bonding. It felt like a good chunk of my semester was spent in Bergeron working on editing documentaries and writing articles. I do have an extreme love-hate relationship with Bergeron. I usually dread going there, but as soon as I walk in, I always see a lot of familiar faces which makes everything better. Along with missing a lot of my classmates, I'm going to miss the MJD department as a whole. I had two great professors this past semester (Jon Hyde and Allison Cleary) who taught me to think critically and work hard.

- Orientation Week. I enjoyed spending a lot of time with the group of orientation leaders and connecting with my orientation partner and our group (group 18, wooohoooo!) It was nice to come back a week earlier and be involved in the whole orientation week. Excited to be doing it again next year!

- Her Campus. Alex and I started a Her Campus chapter for SMC our sophomore year. All of our group meetings have been really fun and I'm going to miss them a lot. Since Alex and I are both going abroad and have a busy senior year ahead of us, we decided to step down from being the managers of the chapter. Still, I'm hoping to play a smaller role in it senior year!

I'm gonna miss Saint Mike's a ton, but I'll be blogging with updates about my time in Ireland next semester. Be sure to be on the look out for those posts!
Thanks for reading and happy holidays!
