Seven semesters down, one more to go! Can you believe I’m almost pau with college? I still have nightmares about my first few weeks of freshman year so I’m definitely not reminiscing upon those memories, but I am going to miss the classes I finished last week. I’m expecting to earn the best grades of my undergrad career so far and I’m the most ready to relax over the next 4.5 weeks and turn up the melanin in my skin because I haven’t seen the sun in months! Full beach days, sleepovers with my best pals, picnics, weekly trips to Tanioka’s/Young’s Fish Market, my 22nd birthday, and Christmas festivities are all on the to-do list for this Christmas break and I’m so excited for every activity to come! I lied a few days ago- Christmas in Hawaiʻi is just as magical as Christmas in New York!
