Luckily, college students get about 4 weeks off from school between the fall and spring semester, and for many students this time is full of traveling home, vacations, and many holidays. This year I spent Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years with my family, friends and Grayson. This year brought so much joy to my life and it was so nice being able to end the year with so much fun. I’ve spent a lot of break working, spending time with Grayson and heading home to see my family and friends from home – I am so grateful to be so busy even when on break!
Grayson and I headed to the Broncos game against the Raiders (his favorite team as you can see by his jersey...) he was very happy because the all mighty Broncos lost to the Raiders and thats a pretty big day to Gray - he's never watched his Raiders lose in person so he's glad to keep that going. NFL is not my most favorite but I will always support my Broncos :)
I had a few days of finals left before it was officially break after Thanksgiving, but it was so nice to head home and get a touch of break.
Thanksgiving was spent at my dads with family friends and lots of love, it was so nice to see some people I have missed for so long and so great to have so many people together!
I finished my 5th semester of college with my best grades ever, and a new beginning in Journalism – where I have finally started classes for broadcasting and telecommunications, it was a big semester that’s for sure!
Once finals were over I headed home to see family and enjoy the holidays with the people I love most – Christmas came and went oh too fast and I think the saddest day of the year is when we all pack up the Christmas decorations and the tree goes back into the box - this year I was so excited to give Grayson his christmas gift, I found a company that creates custom made vinyl records and made a soundtrack to our first full year together :-) My family spent Christmas eve driving around and checking out the lights throughout the neighborhood - it was a happy christmas
Gray and I made it out to a Nuggets game, but not for the Nuggies - we went so Gray could see his beloved Kobe at least once more before he's not a part of the Lakers after this season :( I supported bae and wore a Lakers t shirt that fit me like a dress and it was pretty weird supporting the opposite team for the first time ever in my own home city
New years was spent with my sweet boyfriend Grayson in Boulder with al of his friends from high school that he hasn’t seen in forever, it was so nice to get to know his friends even better and they definitely know how to throw a great party :-)
Over break both my mom and Gray dragged me to the movie theatre to see Brooklyn and the new Star Wars - I hate the movie theatre.. it makes me sad to sit in uncomfortable chairs and not be able to cuddle to watch a movie when I can do that just as well at home on my couch but I still had a great time with two of my favorites
Now its time to enjoy my last week of break and get a few hours of work in before its time to head into my second semester of Junior year – I am so excited for all this new year will bring and all the adventures that will be even better than the ones before!
Happy New Year lovelies – make it a good one
