Celebrate Midwinter Ball, Midterm Break, and a box of chocolates with Eve!

Hello world,

How was your weekend? At Carleton, we celebrated a long weekend, also known as Midterm Break (a day off from classes on the sixth Monday of each term).

Traditionally, Midwinter Ball falls on the the fifth Saturday, so this weekend is usually a pretty energetic one. Mine was definitely packed with friends and fun, including a group movie night (we watched Annabelle Comes Home and Nacho Libre), Midwinter Ball festivities, and a trip to Mall of America.

I didn’t get to play a DJ set for Midwinter Ball like I did last year and one of my good friends was off-campus, but I got to dance and bond with this group (I’m in the navy dress):

Movie night was on Sunday. Then, on Monday, I went to the mall with a friend. We bought and ate a lot of chocolate from Lindt (!!!!), including the varieties pictured below. Apparently Lindt makes a matcha truffle flavor now, so that was cool.

On Tuesday, I also listened to some poems and stories at Carleton’s chapter of Define American.

How is your week going?

Stay warm!

Hello hello! I’m Eve, a 20 y.o. Anthropology major and hybrid image maker. On campus, you can find me hauling around weird photo props in the Weitz, pretending to study in Sayles, lounging on 2nd Cassat, or boxing at the Rec. If you see me, don’t be shy… come over and say hi! Meet the other bloggers!
