Long Weekend!

Hello everyone! I hope you have all had a great nice relaxing long weekend! This past week has been a lot of new experiences for me!

FullSizeRender (28)For those who followed along with me last year, I try my hardest to eat healthy and to be active. So to push myself to stay at it, so this past week I was a part of the glow run! And I have also joined not one, but two Intramural sports: softball and soccer! Not going to lie, softball hasn’t been a strength of mine since the fifth grade practice when I got a black eye. Since then, I have been afraid of the ball. But I figured this was the time to push myself and play. After the first game, I am not sure I will go back  . . . . IMG_1853But soccer was great! I have played on and off for a lot of my childhood: traveling soccer from middle school to part of high school. Soccer was also loads of fun because we won! So yay! I am a really competitive person, so part of the fun is winning!

I have no idea how people are able to do college sports. It is such a huge time commitment! But doing intramural or club games is my own preference so that I can study, work, and also enjoy college through all the stress! Not saying that college athletes can’t do all of those things, I just don’t know when they would sleep!

For me, and for many others, college is about trying new things. So although I have danced at family holiday parties, I decided to attend a get together for the SXU Bachata dance team. And I am so happy I went because it was so much fun! We will be learning different dances and practicing them! I had such a fun team that the time just flew! I am really looking forward to being an active member!

For Labor Day weekend I went with my boyfriend to visit his family in Davenport, Iowa. We are both from Minnesota but still love Chicago. Our trip was a nice relaxing weekend away from the city life. And the land was truly beautiful! IMG_2963The hills, valleys, and land were actually breath taking! Part of the reason we also went to visit was that my boyfriend’s family recently got a puppy and she was part of the highlight of the weekend for me! She was so cute! We had a little bit of trouble with signal and car issues! But just the same I was on time for my first class so no worries!

I wish everyone good luck on this short week of class! Thanks for reading!
