Snowy season

Hi all!

If you don’t already know, I’m not much of a winter person. (I know, why go to school in Vermont, right?) I enjoy the snow-covered ground for about 5 minutes and then it’s numbingly unpleasant. But, hey, to each their own.

However, I will say that with snow comes a lot of holiday cheer here on campus. My housemates in particular are rather festive this year, and we have a winter wonderland-esque window display in our living room. (Which makes the season a whole lot more enjoyable!)

This is really what the season is about. Great friends, hot chocolate (while watching Frozen, of course) and trying not to freak out too much over finals.

Also, I suppose it is quite pretty with just a sparkly dusting of snow covering our already beautiful campus. Vermont is spectacular any time of the year, really.

Here are a few snaps of the season thus far. Hope you’re all enjoying the winter weather – stay warm!

Did you know that the iconic LL Bean duck boots now have a 100,000 person waiting list until 2015? Apparently, Vermonters are quite on-trend and practical with our favorite winter-wear. I actually posted about them on my other blog, too – click here.

My housemate Emma is a snowflake genius. I mean, look at these! Gorgeous!

Just last week, I discovered that you can get the chai latte at Einstein’s (on campus) with a shot of espresso, which is called a “dirty hippie” – the perfect drink for a tasty jumpstart on a cold day.

Our magical winter wonderland window. Just more reasons why I love it here – fantastic people and so much season spirit.

Our last Defender layout day of the semester just happened this weekend – very bittersweet! Producing the paper is always such a rewarding feeling, but I’m also very excited for winter break, naturally…

This snowfall happened a week or so ago, and I’ll admit, the first real snowfall is always rather stunning. (I just can’t stand the cold, but oh well!)
