These past two weeks have flown by because finals have come to an end (finally!) and the holidays are fast approaching. With school over and our outreach programs being on break until after the new year, I have put my focus towards basketball. We had an amazing one point win over the Celtics, which is the other Limerick team which means there is a big rivalry between our two teams. We were down the whole game but managed to keep the score close and comeback in the end. It was a gritty game that had a positive outcome for the Huskies and I am proud that we were able to get a win right before I go home for Christmas break!
I leave for Christmas break soon and I can not wait to be home with my friends and family. I miss Boston so much and I can’t wait to see a bit of snow on the ground (words I never thought I would say)! My mom and two sisters are picking me up from the airport and our whole family is going to get dinner together which will be the first time we are all together since August when my little sister left for college in North Carolina. I think the first thing that I will do when I get home is go to Dunkin Donuts and get a pumpkin iced coffee because that is my absolute favorite drink when it gets cold out and I have not been able to find it anywhere. My family is also going to Florida for Christmas to visit my grandparents, so I am excited to spend some much needed time in the sun!
