My dad has always told me that high school will go by very fast. Of course, being the naive fourteen year old I was, I did not believe him. I went through high school thinking that it was going to last forever. But before I knew it, I was getting ready to graduate from high school. I never knew that it was going to go by that fast. I was very happy with myself and how I ended my high school career.
Of course, when I went to college I was actually listening to what my dad had to say about college. He told me that before I knew I was going to be coming home for Christmas. It is very hard to believe that time does go by that fast. I cannot believe that I only have three weeks of my first semester of college. It feels like yesterday, I was just moving into my dorm room.
This year has been very exciting between volleyball, new classes, new friends and new places. My team and I traveled to Denver, Colorado at the end of August and was lucky enough to see mountains, while playing against some very good Colorado teams. Even though, I did not play through the whole season, I feel lucky enough to actually be part of the Saint Joseph’s Volleyball team.
I have one more month and I will be able to again since May 20th (the day I tore my ACL). It feels good knowing that I can actually start playing again. Volleyball has been a part of me since I was nine years old. I do not know what I would do if I did not play volleyball. As break get closer and closer, I just think how far I have come since my surgery and I am proud of myself for not giving up on myself and pushing through this first semester of college and pushing through rehab and becoming stronger for next season.
