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!
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 . . . . But 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! The 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!
