Spooky things

We’re currently in the middle of Family Weekend, and it’s funny because it’s also Halloween weekend, one of the main party weekends for any college. What better time for family to come visit, right? Either way, Family Weekend is always nice — the college arranges events for families that visit, the acapella groups have a joint concert (which I’ll be going to later today), and Val generally serves better food than usual.

Earlier today, I caught myself saying to a friend, “Anytime this week is fine — I don’t have anything going on.” A few seconds later, I realized how rarely I say something like this. No exams, no major papers — this is great! Seriously, it’s such a blessing just to be able to have a few weeks with no major stresses imminently looming on the horizon.
