Christmas Banquet

The Student Activities sponsored Christmas Banquet, on Saturday night went off without a glitch. Although that this being a SA event, meant yours truly was up and running by 8am, to the depot to set up for the gala. The banquet sold out – 1,200 tickets, 120 tables, 1,100 almond stuffed chicken breasts, 100 vegetarian almond alternatives, 1,200 ginger salads, 400 feet garland, 700 feet tulle, 50 strands of Christmas lights, one mad DJ, and one gigantic Christmas tree. All composed together made for one crazy party.

But alas, finals week, days of pure crazy and mad studying for 4 tests that count for more of my grade then any test ever did in high school. Although it does have an upside, no 7:30am classes, late night DC, and the looming fact that in 6 days I will be home. Home. A sight that I have not seen since the middle of August. I can’t wait to see the mountains, real mountains, not the mole hills out here. My family will be a sight for sore eyes, I have only heard their voices for the past 5 months.
