This semester has absolutely flown by and I can't believe that the next time I pack up my car and drive down 89 I will be saying goodbye to St. Mike's until the fall.  As excited as I am to study abroad in South Africa this spring, it will be hard leaving so many friends and my home for an entire semester. I know it will be a life changing experience, but right now I'm trying to focus on living in the few moments I have left to cherish for a while.  I am so grateful to call St. Mike's my home for more reasons than I can count, but I'm going to give it a shot.

1.  I'm thankful for my rugby family. I joined the SMC women's rugby team in the spring of my freshman year and haven't looked back since.  The team of 40 girls is my family away from home and we stick by each other through it all. Our season just ended last weekend when we advanced to the second round of nationals, the furthest the team ever has, making St. Mike's history.

2. I'm thankful for my beautiful surroundings. I may be biased, but Vermont is seriously one of the most beautiful states in our country.  Whenever I need a break from the stress of school, I know I can go down to Lake Champlain to appreciate Momma Nature and instantly feel better.

There is nothing quite like a Burlington sunset
3. I'm thankful for the St. Mike's community and campus.  Everyday I appreciate the community at this school more and more. There is always a familiar face wherever you go, but at the same time I am always meeting new people.  I have such a supportive group of friends who I truly call family here.  Family dinners in Alliot are one of my favorite parts of every week.
