think about it: pizzas come as a circle, they’re in a square box, and cut into triangles
As winter break flies by, I can’t help but feel nervous, anxious, and excited for the upcoming semester. Yes, I will be going into my final semester of college. While I am more than ready to tackle the real world, I can’t help but wish that each and every day takes it’s sweet time to pass.
I have successfully landed an internship with IO Creative, a public relations and marketing firm located in downtown York City and could not be happier. I think that it will be an extremely valuable asset and put me on the right track coming out of school.
I also will be going into my last semester of track. Track has been such a huge part of my life for the past 8 years and I wouldn’t change it for the world. It has shown me how to properly balance my schoolwork, a social life and athletics. I will most definitely continue to compete through the USATF (United States of America Track and Field).
I have a lot on my plate with these next few months and I can only say two words about it, “Bring it!”
As I sit home and ponder what is going through Mother Natures’ mind, I cannot help but think about how just 10 days ago I spent all day playing in the snow like a little kid. Jeez, this global warming stuff is starting to get out of hand that’s for sure!
our massive snowman that took up the majority of our lawn! great packing snow!
it’s safe to say we weren’t too upset about classes being cancelled
white as far as the eye can see
the local watering hole, Murph’s, still accessible!
minutes after this picture was taken, a street-wide snowball fight broke out. safe to say we were the victors of course! I may complain about the snow and cold, but it sure doesn’t stop me from acting like a child every time it snows!
finals time! spent all day yesterday studying, spent all night studying, spent all morning study…PLEASE PAY OFF
While I continue to “study” as quoted in my most previous post, I did have my first track meet of the season yesterday. The meet was at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA. School in attendance were Bucknell University, Kutztown University, Shippensburg University, Lock Haven University, University of Maryland Baltimore County, Bloomsburg University, and St. Francis University. Our school, York, was the only Division 3 school present, all other schools were either Division 1 or Division 2. Going up against competitors who are consistently better than you is very helpful. While it may be discoiuraging at times, you have to mentally focus and tell yourself that they are in a different category than you are, push yourself. AS for myself yesterday, I had an interesting day. In shotput I fouled all three of my competition throws. I unfortunately was unable to stay in the circle, the boundaries in which the thrower must stay inside while throwing. I had very good throws though. If I would have stayed in the circle I just might have had a school record. It was a great throw but I couldn’t stick the landing. I was so upset with myself but it did feel good to know that I had the capabilities inside me. Better luck next time! I can only better prepare myself for my next meet which is at Ursinus College on January 24!
It’s finally here. Pre-meet. The day before track meets. Usually our practices consist of a light throw and stretch just to loosen up and run through our moves and steps. This year, my coach has ben focusing a little more on the rest that our team needs. Hopefully by using these news techniques and methods my teammates and I can improve. We’re going up against some tough competition tomorrow at Bucknell University. There’s going to be a ton of division 1 athletes so I’m really going to have to dig deep and give it all I’ve got. Go Spartans!
This cold weather stuff is for the birds. Actually, it’s not for the birds because they’re the smart ones who leave this God forsaken weather. I need a pair of wings to get my butt somewhere warm.
Bora Bora looks nice enough for me right now
