Yes, last weekend was homecoming. And it was a whirlwind of a weekend. I especially love homecoming weekend because lots of recent alums come back to visit; now that I’m a junior, lots of the friends I have made in the past two years have graduated, so I only get to see them in Jackson for occasions such as these.
It’s always amazing to think back to everything you did over a weekend like homecoming. To give you a look at what I mean, over the course of about a day and a half, our sorority had an open house for our alumnae, we went to the football game, volleyball games, worked to raise money for my sorority’s national philanthropy, ate lots of barbecue, ate at restaurants, went out each night, I had to babysit (womp womp), visited with old friends, visited with new friends, watched movies to relax, and somewhere along the line found some time to sleep a little. Not to mention I tried to talk to Major Millsaps (the mascot) at the football game, and all he did was brandish his sword at me. How nice.
The only negative thing I encountered the entire weekend was a glowing sunburn on my back and shoulders from the afternoon spent behind the end zone at the football game. The rest of the weekend was wonderful. I even got to watch one of my good friends get crowned Homecoming queen in the middle of the football field. Go Kristin! ow! Ow! And once everyone was gone, I rounded out Sunday by staying in bed all afternoon, sleeping and watching TV. I wish I could do all this every weekend.
