October 5 – November 16
Well the rest of the quarter went by fast – whew!
October was a great month though. Aside from recruiting craziness picking up, I feel like I am getting better at the whole balance thing.
I also had two friends (Chris and Stef!) come visit Halloween weekend. It was so great to catch up with both of them. We also saw Hamilton in Chicago that weekend (it was AMAZING).
Kellogg’s big fall formal also happened in October (Fall Ball). The event was great, but my favorite part was definitely the two hours my crew spent hummer limo-ing around Chicago before the event.
November kicked off with the election (see my last post for more detailed thoughts there). I am still not quite over the results. Don’t support Trump. Not impressed with some of the cabinet members being floated around nor his ideas around policy. But, we are where we are, so still hoping for the best there.
Otherwise, November is going well. Everyone on KTech exec went to Michigan last weekend for a retreat. It was so nice to spend a night away from Kellogg with no technology and just each other. I feel closer to everyone who went and can’t wait to go again (hopefully soon).

I am really really excited about the Thanksgiving break. Though I will be spending most of it writing cover letters and working on projects for school (boo!), I will also get some quality time with Ryan. I haven’t seen him in two months and am going utterly crazy over the whole separation. I am equally (if not more) excited to also get some time in with Keno:

Not looking forward to the political drama that will inevitably erupt among my politically-split family over Thanksgiving dinner, but at least I’ll have the food to comfort me 🙂
After, I’ll have a week of class before finals then will be off to the Bay for the holidays. Looking forward to all my Ryan time <3
