I love attending Bucknell, however at times I feel that I get bored staying in Lewisburg and going through a constant routine, never escaping the “bubble”. I last minute decided that in order to feel better and less stress constantly running around on campus that I would take a break from Bucknell and go home for the weekend. The comfort of being with family and surprising them for the weekend helped me reset and relax. The ability to have New York City, ski mountains, and hiking trails so close to my home allowed me to have an active weekend that I usually do not experience on campus. I felt inspired to fill my few days up turning my phone off and hitting the slopes, enjoying a little vacation. Coming back to campus I felt excited to continue to soak in everything Lewisburg has and continue to enjoy everything that Bucknell offers.
It is hard for Bucknell kids to escape the bubble and go out of their way to consume everything that the area has to offer. Just from experiencing this weekend I realized that I need to step back on campus and change the way I face every day, forcing myself to be exposed to new things.
