Feast Day: Year 2

St. Scholastica is a very communal place to be, and this is always evident on Feast Day. Technically tomorrow is Feast Day, but tomorrow is also the first day of Lent, so we are celebrating one day early. I remember last year I shared the feast with my Dignitas class, and this year some of my co-workers all went together. People who normally wouldn’t eat together did today, and I think that is special. The sisters provided us with free doughnuts and juice this morning, and there is a free Italian feast at GDR. The entire community came together to celebrate this day, and I am sure many people pitched in to make it happen. Later there are refreshments available while we view interesting artifacts from the College’s Founding Mothers. I am so glad that the school does this for us because we get the opportunity to learn about the history of our College and who it is named after. The story of Scholastica and her brother Benedict and their close relationship even though they could hardly spend time together is one of my favorites. I feel even more grounded into the community when people from all the different areas (students, chapel, professors, staff, monastery, etc.) come together and share something we all love: food! Twenty-five accepted students of the School of Arts and Letters are also here today, and I had the opportunity to talk to some of them, and I told them a little bit about my major and some of them were even interested in studying English! Yay! Overall, the week is picking up from where it was yesterday. I talked to my mom and she gave me all these pointers on how to get better faster (the first being to sleep), and I have been trying to take her advice. Hopefully I will be fully recovered in a couple of days because these next few weeks are going to be busy ones! But for now, I am going to enjoy a great lunch before I get back at it.
