So I had a meet on Thursday. Got so close to sub-17 I could taste it last meet, so I was absolutely determined this time. I wanted to prove so bad to Coach F that I was varsity league material. I was #4, after all, and top 4 are varsity! And ya know what? IContinue reading “Track – BOOM! IN YO FACE”

Summer Plans

Eventful week. Got into Interlochen High School Summer Piano Program! It’s supposed to be extremely competitive, so that’s great. On the other hand, also got into the Brown Pre-college Program. Not sure about that one. It’s apparently not very competitive, and really just for rich kids who could pay. Decisions, decisions. My dream for summerContinue reading “Summer Plans”

Meanwhile, Crush V

Just a reminder, he’s not a ‘crush’ anymore, but I will continue to refer to him as such simply to keep things straight with the tags and whatnot. Alright. So. Some people are just gifted. In some way. Like either they’re just extremely likable, or super smart, or super athletic. Crush V is all ofContinue reading “Meanwhile, Crush V”

Track Update

Track. Oh track. My shin splints are fine now, but the second I start to¬†slightly do anything resembling a jog,¬†they scream at me to stop and I oblige. Therefore, I suck at practice. And therefore, I’ve been moved back down to JV. But at the meet, I hit 18.04, which is a personal best forContinue reading “Track Update”
