You know those days where you just feel like your life is go, go, go all day long? That’s where I’m at right about now. I left my house at 7:30 this morning and finally got home close to 10:00 tonight.
As soon as I got out of work, I headed back to my alma mater, Grand Valley State University, for a meeting with the Young Alumni Council.
I did both my undergrad and graduate degrees at GVSU and yes, I am one of those people that will go on and on about how much they love their college. It was a rough start but I had an amazing experience during my time on campus. I grew up a lot during that time and learned so much about myself. As I walked through campus, I felt almost giddy about being back. I love being a Laker and I’m so proud to be an alum twice over!
Fun fact: my high school and college mascot were both a “Laker”. At Grand Valley, his name is Louie and he even has his own Facebook profile.
While I on my way into the meeting, I stopped at Starbucks for old time’s sake. Having a Starbucks on campus was a life-saver during my night classes once I was doing the full time work and full time student thing! A life-saver on my wallet? Not so much.
Did you know they can make a peppermint mocha all year long? I didn’t and I was kind of bummed to learn that. It ruins the illusion of it being a seasonal drink!
The Young Alumni meetings always include dinner which is a definite bonus. Tonight’s was delicious! A couple different salads, some couscous, fruit, bread, and dessert? What more could a girl ask for? Well, maybe a class of wine. I had a little bit of everything.
That chocolate-y, peanut butter-y square? Brownie? I don’t even know what to call it. Whatever it was, it was uh-may-zing.
I left that meeting a bit early to drive to the church for Anthem, where I was a bit late. I’m glad I was able to fit everything in, as best I could, but now I am exhausted!
Are you involved as an alumni? Or if you’re still in school, do you plan to get involved? I highly recommend it! I love staying connected!
