This weekend I am headed home with one of my roommates to her house in Moorestown, NJ. I am so excited to finally see her hometown and to see where she grew up! It is hard to believe that we let 4 years go bye without doing this.
So far we plan to leave McDaniel around 1 on Friday and arrive at her house around 4. We plan to just hang out and relax on Friday night and start to study for finals. On Saturday we plan to take the train into Philly and explore downtown. I have been to Philly before but am excited to see it again. Sunday is mothers day so we will be having lunch with her mom, who’s become another mom for me, and then head back to school.
I am looking forward to this trip so much for a few reasons. One would be that even though McDaniel is awesome and offers several activities, it is still nice to get off campus and go to a house. Another is that I love seeing where people are from and I believe this helps me to understand them a bit more.
I hope you all find lifelong friends in college and can go and enjoy their home towns, wither near or far, and see where they grew up.
