Finally February

My friend Allison once defined senior year as “one giant countdown to a countdown.” It’s a pretty accurate description. From deadlines and decisions to milestones that used to feel distant, it seems like nearly everything this year has been a countdown to February – and now it’s here!

It’s crazy to think that all the hours, weeks, yards, and years that I’ve put into this sport will amount to a few short moments. It will all soon be a memory – which is both exciting and sad. Nonetheless, I’m determined to make the hard work and commitment count and end on a good note!

February, let’s do this.
