Weeks Photo It has been about a month since classes started up, but it still feels like CAP week was yesterday. That’s one thing about this place that never ceases to amaze me—how quickly time passes. Between classes, homework, swimming, water polo, hanging out with friends and sleeping, there isn’t any room for a slow weekday. The weekends, however, are very relaxed. Weekends are perfect for sleeping in, getting ahead in coursework and just relaxing in general.


My swim meets and water polo tournaments all fall on the weekends, and I get to travel for most of my competitions. I just returned from the first water polo tournament of the season in Amherst, Massachusetts, and it was a blast! Our team rode up in a bus, spent the night at a hotel and competed in four games. We went two and two and ended up with 3rd place in the tournament (pretty good for the season opener). The swim season officially started up this week, so I will be balancing swimming and water polo practices for the next month or so.


The school year is off to a pretty solid start as well, the majority of my classes are in the mornings, which gives me two or three hours of free time in the afternoons. I use that time to get homework done, and then I take three hours off for practice and dinner. By then, most of my homework is done and I can spend the rest of the evening relaxing and getting ahead in my studies.
