I headed back to the Cross for homecoming this weekend!
I picked up Carrie in New Haven after work, and we headed up to Worcester! Our friend Sarah graciously offered to host us, so we headed over to her house. After a nice hot meal of pho on Park Avenue (and an encounter with our class dean from Holy Cross) we headed home to watch some bad TV and go to sleep.
We got up bright and early to attend the Holy Cross Goodtime Marching Band alumni event! I joined a bunch of other band alumni in marching at halftime and performing in the stands. I love busting out the flute every so often, so homecoming was a great excuse to do so. I also love seeing all the band members past and present. Band was a huge part of my life in college, and was probably one of the best things I ever did. Like ever.
Unfortunately, HC lost to Dartmouth 13-10. 😦
After the game, the bandos (Carrie, Meghan, Michelle, and I) met up with Sarah, Rebecca, Sean, Caitlin, and Fallon for a nice meal on Shrewsbury Street. I probably laughed harder than I have in a long time. Eventually we all met up again for a party at Michelle’s house in Worcester. I personally had a great time, but I know all of us were exhausted from being at the game all day. Either way, I always enjoy Michelle’s parties because she is probably one of the classiest people I know. Period.
Finally, after a nice breakfast at Culpepper’s with Rebecca and Sean, Carrie and I began our journey back to Connecticut. We made good time and got Carrie back to her swearing in ceremony with time to spare.
I promptly went home and sprained my ankle while helping my mom bring in groceries. Typical Alyssa. WHOMP WHOMP.
