Hey guys! Happy March!! Can you believe it’s already the third month of the year?! It’s crazy to think that this much time has passed. I feel like the year has just begun and I haven’t gotten anything done. Yet, it seems like I’ve lived three more years, not just three months.
Last year and the year before I used to write installments every week on how I was personally doing, and I’m going to start again. I can’t promise that it’ll be every week because, surprise, being a college student is super duper busy all the time! I’m going to try to keep up though because this was one of my favorite parts of the blog.
So what have I been up to lately? A lot. This past week we went on spring break, and I travelled with the crew team to South Carolina for training. It has been a long hard week of rowing every single day, 2-3 times at least. I’ve been really tired all the time, and I feel like I can’t get a moment to myself without feeling guilty for not socializing with my teammates. This introvert is having too much people time without enough time to recharge her batteries!
That being said, I have really enjoyed a lot of my break. This hard work is getting us ready for a competitive race season, and we’re shaping up to be really good on the water this spring. I’m really looking forward to travelling to Philly in May for the DadVail regatta. My parents are going to come see us, and I’m excited to see them there.
Here are some pics that I’ve taken from the week:
The picture on the left is me and a few of my teammates in the dining hall here at Clemson and the one on the right is taken off the starboard side of our boat from Thursday’s practice. It was a beautiful day for rowing in the morning but we had to do dryland training in the afternoon because of the rough winds.
I finished three books so far on break, but I have a 16+ hour bus ride back to Michigan, so there’s plenty of time to get even more complete. I can’t wait to share reviews on the amazing books I read, and I hope you like them too!
With classes starting back up on Monday, I have a lot to get done so I’m signing off for now. Until next time!
