I thought I was going to give up on the blog thing because I have the "who cares about me enough to read my blog" syndrome. But I decided to start it up again because although I originally thought my life got slightly more boring after graduation, I still have fun, awesome things going on, and want to write about them!
#1 - I graduated! That's nuts. Oh how far I've come since my past thoughts of "I'm not sure college is for me." HA. Oh really, Faith? One of the best pieces of advice I've ever gotten was from Alyse during my freshman year at Tech. "Is it possible for you to just take things less seriously?" I took seriously the reality that I knew I needed to transfer schools, and then the 'taking things as serious and intense as possible phase' ended. I got to Rutgers and loved every second of it, mainly the lacrosse part, and teammates part (Obviously). I could play lacrosse for the rest of my life, I'm pretty sure. I miss it so much already.
#2 - I'm training for a race!! It's a 92 mile team running race that I'm running with 6 other dudes. Lord help me. I've reached out to Oliver Knowlton about how to train and which phases to run, etc etc. I'm excited!! But one thing: I thought I had my DAD'S GENES!!! Apparently not his long distance running genes because this mess is ROUGH! I ran 4 miles today at 2 in the afternoon and I'm dead. Lord help me.
One thing I am looking forward to is running a) because my pops is going to be proud and b) for our little sister Genna. She has NF, a type of brain cancer, and came to many of our games at school. She is the sweetest, most upbeat, awesome, kind, creative, and energetic little girl and if I complete this race for any reason it's going to be because Genna has overcome SO many challenges and she's basically only half my age. GO her!
My next post is going to be about soccer and this world cup stuff... people may be mad at me.. but they'll deal.
