Spring Break

It’s been a busy time for me and I haven’t had much time to blog. The season’s over and I’ve started to look towards next year and transfer options. I’m faced with the sudden realization that my classes and academics are more important than basketball.

So since the end of the season, it’s been early morning meetings with instructors and late nights in the gym, diets to keep my body right and sleep to help it recover. It’s funny how it appears to me that now after the season my days are more like what I thought a college athlete’s life would be like. When I came here I thought I’d be constantly busy between training, games, and keeping up with my classes. But during the season we didn’t have training all the time and so I actually had free time and somehow felt less fatigued. Since finishing the season, I’ve found that I’m juggling lifting, working out, school, and a social life.

Here’s to spring break and hopefully the last few weeks of school will fly by and I’ll be home in no time.
