A Wild Week
Posted on Saturday, March 26th, 2016 by Ali Froslie
Well, here I am, sitting on my bed at home, vaguely sick and still mildly sleep deprived. But, I’m totally fine with it.
Let me catch you up.
The last week or so has been one of the busiest. Last Thursday the Chapel Choir packed up two coach buses and headed off to tour Minnesota for a few days. This was one of the best experiences in my colligate career so far. We had so much fun– eating WONDERFUL church potlucks, staying with some AMAZING host families after concerts, exploring MALLS (okay, malls aren’t that exciting, but I needed to keep the pattern :)), and making some TERRIFYING face swaps (that new SnapChat app is sometimes too accurate…). Not to mention, we got to sing songs that I absolutely loved performing. A few people did get quite ill over the duration of the weekend, but I fortunately held out until we were back. And, all in all, it’s not terrible to be a little sick if you can sleep in your own bed (thanks Easter break). 🙂
If tour was inspiringly fun (which it totally was), the next couple of days were inspiringly stressful. We got back Sunday and Easter break started Wednesday evening. In that duration of time I had three tests to take… all of which were not studied for over tour. I had a few late night cram sessions, but I am proud to say I survived. Thank you all for your concern.
Ah, just kidding. It wasn’t that bad, and I wouldn’t give my weekend on choir tour back for anything… even if it means I wasn’t as prepared for those tests as I would have liked to be. Getting out and experiencing new places and people is sometimes just as (if not more) important than a few grades in the book!
