Birthday Quest

Monday, February 20th, 2017

This weekend was my friend Eric’s 21st birthday! To celebrate, I put together an Adventure Time themed quest that had him running all over campus searching for clues, rescuing candy people, and completing challenges. His locations included Tower Hall front doors, the tutoring center, the Honors Lounge, the library, the rock climbing wall, the basketball court, The Cable office, and a few more. At each location there was a clue or challenge leading him to the next location. There were riddles, word scrambles, and even a tarot card reading by our very own fortune teller. I was super thankful for my friends and the campus faculty and staff who helped out with putting this quest together, even if some of them didn’t know they were participating as he asked for assistance navigating the halls! At the end of his quest, he had to battle two “witches” to rescue all of his friends from the dungeon. When he did so, they all jumped out and yelled “surprise!” Then we had food and played games the rest of the evening! 

Birthday Friends

Monday, April 25th, 2016

One of the most important lessons I have learned in college is to greet the world with open arms and an open mind; this has allowed me to meet some incredible people, especially at CSS. Yesterday, I celebrated my 21st birthday with some of the best humans I know. I cannot begin to put in words the amount of love and care I felt and received. I was reminded by all of my special friends and family how truly lucky I am to have them all in my life. Cheers to them!

23rd Birthday

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

I turned 23 today and my workout buddy, Jen, took me to bdubs instead of working out. She brought me back home and my friends SURPRISED me. I had no idea they had been planning this for a while. I couldn’t believe they have planned it out. Jenny, one of my roommates, was at her nursing clinical and joined us at the end. I felt so loved. Even my roommate from last year was here. Sher, who graduated from CSS last year drove from Minneapolis to see me. I have the best friends.

Birthday Celebration

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

  Sunday was my birthday! I went home for the weekend to spend time with my best friends and family. When I came back Sunday night, my roommate surprised me and opened the door and I started to, and had balloons and a banner! They also got me great gifts. We went out to Olive Garden that night with a few others and had major food babies afterward. This upcoming Friday we’re going to have a movie night also to celebrate with people who couldn’t make it Sunday night. One great thing about college is there’s always a million people who want to join in on the celebration, so you might end up having a few throughout your birthday week!
