Highlights of the Week — Oct. 28-Nov. 3

Hi again! I’m back on this lovely Sunday to share some of my favorite moments from this past week, because it was a busy one! I’m writing this, by the way, after watching the Panthers celebrate another victory against the Buccaneers, making them 6-2.  A happy Sunday indeed! Anyways, here it is:

SUNDAY I had the privilege of going to the Ben Rector concert in Raleigh with my friend Chloe and let me tell you people, that was a gift! He is spectacular live and very fun to see in concert. We enjoyed singing and dancing along to his new and old songs. Go give him a listen if you haven’t already here!

WEDNESDAY was the spookiest day of the year and we celebrated accordingly! I dressed up as a Toy Story alien with my friends and we actually received some approval from people on Franklin Street (which is a big deal, because everyone at UNC comes out with their costumes). It was so much fun, as always, to see what costumes people were dressed up in this year. We also caught the end of a B.O.B. concert, who is a rapper that I surprisingly am familiar with (I’m not very hip when it comes to rap music) that was playing near some of the fraternities!

THURSDAY I met with my lovely small faith group through my church at school, which is always such a refreshing time of the week. I also noticed that the leaves are finally changing on campus, and the colors are so rich and beautiful!

FRIDAY the Media and Journalism school hosted an information session with two alumnae from UNC that now work for the NBA! Listening them talk about their experience so far working in the sports industry was really cool and inspiring for my (possible) future career in this field. Also I hosted a fun Mamma Mia movie night where some of my friends and I watched both movies together and sang along. There wasn’t much to it, but nights like those enjoying time with my friends are so important to me.

SATURDAY I made the trek down to Kenan Memorial Stadium to watch the Tar Heels play against Georgia Tech in our Homecoming game. It was somewhat disappointing because of the end result and our season thus far but I’ll always jump at an opportunity to support the Heels 🙂 I also went to the Fall Clef Hangers concert with my friend Jared which was great as always! They have so much talent and I love getting the opportunity to see them in concert.

Reflecting on my week has shown me how grateful I am for the wonderful people in my life as well as the opportunities that are available to me as a student at the best university in the world (unbiased opinion, for the record). If you haven’t noticed already, I love sharing the things I’m passionate about on my blog, and my friends and university are two of those things. There will surely be more to come about what I’m grateful for this month as Thanksgiving approaches. Happy November, friends!
