The first semester is over! I really had a great time here at Wentworth. I already look forward to the Spring semester, because that's when we're really going to play baseball! According to my teammates and coach we really have a great team this year, so we have a good chance of going far in the Commonwealth Conference.
My previous blog was just before Thanksgiving. So, I'd like to tell you that I had a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving in New Jersey at my roommate Alex' house. His mom and his brother made so much food! Alex and I ate from it all three days we were there. The turkey, the stuffing, the salad, everything was very tasty. We even had 6 different pies for desert! My favorite was probably the zucchini bread (zucchini is the vegetable 'courgette' in Dutch).

I am writing this blog while I am waiting at Boston Logan Airport for my flight home! I'm really looking forward to finally seeing my family, my Dutch friends and my cat again. (Rik, I hope you took good care of him while I was gone?) I will have to enjoy being home for two and a half week very much, since I'll leave for almost 8 months after break! That's because the Northwoods Summer League Baseball will start almost right after my Baseball season ends at Wentworth.
By the way, this will be my last blog on this website. But I enjoy keeping you guys up to date about my adventures, so I will continue blogging on another website next semester. And that website isn't just some website, it's the Wentworth website! I will be an official Wentworth Admissions Blogger next semester. All my future posts will be available on this website soon: blogs.wit.edu/grootenb
Have a nice winter break, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
All the best,
