What are you most looking forward to this year?
As my senior year at Mercy begins, I cannot help but think about all the adventures that are ahead of me. Prom, senior lock-in, and my trip to the Presidential Inauguration this January are just a few of the events that will make my last year at Mercy the most memorable. The one activity that has me most excited about my senior year is going on the senior retreat.
Since my freshman year, I've heard from every single class how life changing and eye-opening the senior retreat is. Although I don't like missing school, I think I can manage being away for a few days, spending time with my sisters. It will be a time for me to open up to the girls that I have spent the last 4 years with and to complete the bond that we created freshman year.
I want to leave Mercy knowing that my class knows more about me than where I sit at lunch or who I am friends with, but that they can know where I came from and the events and people that have made an impact on my life. Even though the whole class can't go on the same retreat together and learn everything about everyone, I can make the most out of the time with the girls I will be blessed to spend those three days with.
I can't wait to not only connect with God but also connect with the young women I will be graduating with this summer. It will be an experience of a lifetime where I can escape from my reality and into a world with my Mercy sisters. I can't wait to see what I will learn about the other girls and to share my experiences with them. Mercy and the people within it mean the world to me, and because of this retreat I am able to connect with them on a deeper level than I thought possible.
My senior retreat on March 22 can't come soon enough!
