soccer, halloween, shopping, and north carolina
This time of year at Gould is a busy, often stressful time. Every class seems to be gearing up for exams (2 weeks..yikes), sport seasons are coming to a close, and everyone is holding their breath waiting anxiously (and sometimes dreading) the snow.
Soccer: It’s Friday as I write this, and it’s GAME DAY! The Women’s Varsity Soccer Team is heading off to Berwick today for a game. Usually, our games are on Saturdays, but the fact that our game is today leads me to my next point.
Shopping/Halloween: Since our team has the entire weekend off, I decided to plan a trip to the Portland Mall and Goodwill. Let me just make something clear. Halloween at Gould is a BIG deal. Almost everyone, faculty included, goes all out. This year, I have two costumes planned (one for school, one for the dance that follows), and both require a fair amount of shopping. Obviously, I can’t disclose any information on these costumes, however I assure you there WILL be pictures. So, tomorrow, a large group of juniors and seniors will head off to Portland for a much needed escape and some shopping. Just to give you an idea of Halloween I will post some pictures of past years Halloweens.
North Carolina: Next Thursday, I’m heading off to the deep south (ish). My sister, Anna (’11), attends Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina. I haven’t seen her in AGES so I’m going to see her for the weekend. I can’t wait!! (Yes Anna, I’m admitting that I miss you).
The next week promises to be full of excitement. Next time I will be writing to you from sunny North Carolina. Until then!
