“Come by my room, Cha-cha,” my dear friend, Kelsi said with a smile. I was reluctant to do so because I hadn’t finished doing my make-up for the night. I was anxious to put on mascara and a bit of “jungle green” eyeliner.
“Alright,” I said with a sigh, and I followed Kelsi to her room to find the biggest surprise ever.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHA-CHA!” Everyone shouted. There were balloons, streamers and a huge “Happy Birthday” sign that decorated the room. I was in complete astonishment. I had no idea they were planning this for me. I was given a card with sweet but brief birthday messages and a delicious chocolate covered cake! I never imagined that such a great birthday would take place while in college. I must admit that the people I have met here at Holy Cross so far are wonderful individuals that I feel honored to be spending the rest of my four years here with and many more to come. I had a fantastic time!
