Finals Week

Hi all So believe it or not finals week is here. I honestly do not know where this last week has gone to. Between last tests, projects, preparing for finals and all the Christmas activities going on around campus this last week was so quick. As I write this I should really be studying for my accounting final tomorrow but I figured I needed a break. It is so weird to think that in five days I will be home for the Christmas break. Yesterday morning my CLC (Christian Life Community) went to volunteer at a clothing distribution for low income families. The organization had collected 1.2 tons of donated clothing and our role was to get the clothing sorted and set up for the families to come in. It was a great way to spend a Saturday morning. After all isn’t that what the Christmas season is all about?
            This past week one of the organizations I am in sponsored Zumba classes as a way to de-stress. I had never done Zumba before but I found it to be a fun and a nice chance to relax.  So tonight is the annual Student Senate Midnight breakfast. As I think I mentioned in a previous blog entry I am on Student Senate so I am helping to serve breakfast to all the students that come tonight.
            Finally, last night was the annual Rockhurst Ceremony of Lessons and Carols presented by the Center for Arts and Letters and the office of Alumni and Constituent relations. It was a great concert. The Rockhurst Choir sounded great. I am always a big fan of holiday concerts and then of course the best part they had a free reception after the concert with holiday cookies J.
Hope you have a great 2nd week of advent.
Here is a quote from one of my favorite Christmas songs called Give This Christmas Away by Matthew West: “Give this Christmas away If there's love in your heart Don't let it stay there Give this Christmas away And your life will be changed By the gift you receive When you give this Christmas away Give this Christmas away You have the power Just give it away Give it away, give it away
