Subject: big tens, baby!
|i am sooooo excited for big tens next week. i have a feeling this is going to be the sweetest meet i've ever been to, not to mention the fact that we're all gonna look ridiculously hot ;) i'm so proud of my team and myself for all the hard work we've done this year, and i know it's definitely gonna pay off and people are gonna swim out of their minds fast. there are only four days left till we get there, and all of a sudden it seems like it's RIGHT HERE in front of us....and that makes me really really pumped. even though i won't score in my events at all, i'm just looking for some personal bests and i'm excited to watch everyone else swim their best, too. there's been some stupid little dramas going on lately, and i think it's just because everyone's getting really worn down, but it seems like taper has been getting our energy levels up and we're starting to goof around and get along a little more than we have in the past month, which is a good thing. i mean, we were definitely really close anyways, there were just those little things that come upon every team at some point or another. anyways, i think everyone's starting to realize that this is our last chance this year to perform as a team and be there to support each other, so we're getting really into it. i <3 my team!
next week i'm going to be failing school because we're missing four days of it. not to mention the fact that i have two papers due next week that i haven't started...i should really get on top of that. i know i'll end up doing it at the last minute, but i hate being stressed like that. oh well.
i haven't been home in about six or seven weeks...i think my family's starting to miss me. haha. i mean, not that they don't on a regular basis, but in the past few days, my grandma, my aunt, and both parents have asked me when i'm coming home again. i've been sooo busy in the past month that taking time off of my schedule to go home is just not in the picture. i guess it would be nice to sleep in my own bed for a day or two, but i've been having so much fun here that i just sort of forget about it. that sounds really really horrible but it's easy to forget about home when there are so many other things on my mind. however, since swimming will be over in ONE WEEK, i'll be able to see some of my family and high school friends and whatnot.
i can't wait for spring break. it's in 14 days. i still don't really know how i'm supposed to pay for it, but i guess i'll have to figure something out. laying on the beach reading a book pretty much sounds like heaven right now. and since, unlike st. lucia, i won't have to worry about the double practices, there will basically be absolutely nothing on my mind the entire time. the only thing that sucks about our spring break is that we are one of only like ten colleges who are on vacation that week, so there won't be that many people down in ft. lauderdale. all of the other schools have sb sometime in march, so they'll get to enjoy the crazy partying. i guess it is actually for the best, since i'm gonna be absolutely exhausted anyways. i'll relax for a week, and then i'll party when i get back. haha.
