Good evening, faithful readers! Hope you all have had a lovely week and that all is well! This past week it finally really happened… I got sick. Now this semester I have been trying oh so hard to be as healthy as possible because I am taking too many classes and involved in too many things to be ill. Eating healthy, daily exercise, sleep (or as much as a college student can get), and even vitamins! The whole nine yards! But yet with all of these efforts, it did no good because I spent Monday through Friday evening with a cold.
Even though I did get a cold this week, on Monday I was able to attend RPM Kathy’s event to go and see He Named Me Malala (the Malala movie). It was a fantastic movie and anyone who is looking for a movie to see, this would be the one!! The group of SXU students who attended were happy to attend and we all had a great time! The movie was really interesting and I will be buying it when it goes on DVD. Truly a fantastic film.
On Thursday I went to my first Chi-Alpha Bible study. It started with praise and worship which was followed by a guest speaker talking with us students who were there. It was completely different than all other Bible studies that I have ever attended before, but it was really fun! And as a perk there was free pizza (yay free food!). So if any student is interested in learning and deepening their own faith, attend Chi-Alpha Bible Study at 5:30in L341!
This upcoming week on Wednesday I am going to be going to Feed my Starving Children with student organization BSU (Black Student Union) which I am super excited about because I love Feed my Starving Children and I am also excited to be getting involved with BSU because it’s a great student organization at SXU! I believe Norris is still taking signups so email him at “email@example.com” if interested! Attached is a movie clip from Feed my Starving Children which I believe explains it all! http://www.fmsc.org/about
On Thursday, I’m invited to attend dinner at “La Taberna a Topas” in Halsted for the SXU Latino Alumni Networking Reception. I have no idea really what it is all about so stay tuned for details next week!
Lastly, this upcoming Friday will be the last Broadview trip for this semester! It is completely full! Which is good even though it means that you can’t sign up for it—but it’s not too early to put Friday trips to Broadview on your New Year’s Resolutions for 2016!!! All you need to do is shoot me an email about the next sign ups! “firstname.lastname@example.org” (Hopefully it wont be as cold as it was in the picture though!)
The good news is that signups for Spring Break Service Trips are STILL happening! The deadline is November 20th (THIS FRIDAY) and signups are done so through OrgSync on mysxu! So sign up fast because spots are filling up!
I hope you all have a lovely week and Thanksgiving is just around the corner! (Yayyyyyyyyy!) Have a great week!
