“What are your plans for the Spring/Summer?”
This spring and summer I have a a lot to accomplish. At the end of this month I will be going to New York City to compete in the NYAC wrestling tournament at 68kg. I am excited to be in a familiar place and wrestle some people that I have not wrestled since last year. I feel that at Brock I have become a whole different athlete, and I cannot wait to prove that to myself, coaches and family. After that tournament, I am going to be preparing for the US open in Vegas, Nevada. That is one of my favourite tournaments because well… it is in Vegas. If I place top eight at this tournament, I will go on to compete in May at the United States Wrestling Nationals.
Aside from my wrestling, I have some academic plans as well. This summer I will be going back and forth between school and New Jersey so that I can train. While I am here in Thorold this spring and summer, I plan on taking some business courses. It would be ideal if I could get some of my requirements taken care of before the September 2018 school year begins. I hope that I can find a few classes that do not go into June, because I will also be going to Europe for the first time with my family.
For fun, I will be going to Europe, seeing my old friends, and spending quality time with my family back in New Jersey. I have never been to Italy before and I finally get the chance to travel there this summer. I will be going with my two parents, my Dad’s fraternity brothers, my sister, and my best friend since 7th grade. While we are there, I plan to explore Rome and enjoy some great Italian food (my favourite)! After Italy, I plan on spending a decent amount of time at home and reconnecting with family and friends. I am excited to see all of the friends I made at Lafayette College last year and asking them about sorority life and school. The things I am most anxious for, are to see my dog and sisters, as well as eat my mom’s food. It is quite odd living without a pet, and I miss the cuddle sessions that I always have with my goldendoodle, Lilly. Seeing my sisters is also an exciting occasion because I have not seen them since Christmas. My family is pretty close in general but the bond I have with my sisters is unbreakable. Lastly, like every college student, I am excited to enjoy my mom’s excellent cooking skills. I am so tired of the mediocre food I make for myself and am looking forward to being spoiled by my Italian mother!
As you can see I have one busy summer ahead of me! I can not wait to see what the next couple of months have in store. It will be nice to get away from the four- class workload and focus my energy on a other things. I hope that your summer sounds as busy and exciting as mine!
