    As September ends and October begins, I want to make a little list of a few of the things that make me realized how blessed I am surrounding me. Disclaimer: I am writing this more for myself than anyone else. Honestly, Sophomore year hit me hard and September was challenging to put it easily. For most of the month, I was covered in piles of homework and trying to keep my head above water in the rushing river rapids that are life.

    So Much to be Thankful For…

    Hello to all my friends and family! Thursday was Thanksgiving and also the three month anniversary of me moving into St. Norbert and it led me to reflect on many aspects of my life. Many things have changed in the past few months, mainly for the better. I have met an incredible group of people and I am immensely grateful. I love living in Bergstrom in such a great community of the incredible Second Floor Sisters. The girls of Chiara have also really helped support and guide me these past few months in the change in atmosphere on my faith journey. Thanks to the incredible Katie for dealing with me and…
