Last weekend, the boys and girls swim teams competed at the Class 4A-3A East Region meet in Annapolis.
They all worked really hard, and the girls achieved third place, while the boys scored seventh against some really tough competition. While I was not able to attend, I am still super proud of every single swimmer, regardless of place.
This season, a lot of girls qualified for the state 4A-3A meet and will swim tomorrow at University of Maryland College Park’s Eppley Recreation Center. Good luck ladies.
As for me, I have definitely enjoyed lying on the couch and watching television re-runs, getting all of that sleep I missed. Or, so I wish.
This past week and the weeks ahead of me are jam-packed with everything imaginable. Between school events, a social life and shuffling through everyday procedures, I am finding it very easy to become overwhelmed.
What can I say? I am a teenager, and I do procrastinate.
Today includes scholarship deadlines and the National Technical Honor Society dodgeball tournament, which are followed by a birthday dinner. Saturday brings along the swimming state competitions, whatever homework I can squeeze in and the National Honor Society-sponsored school dance.
As if that were not enough, my 18th birthday is Sunday. Talk about a busy weekend.
To say the least, this is probably how my entire year will go. It is too soon to tell, but with only 65 days left before graduation, time seems to be flying by.
Writing essays like crazy for scholarships, doing service events, prom, graduating, starting college and doing everything else sandwiched between, you really could say this year is packed.
If it was not, I would be really bored.
With all this fun stuff going on, it is undeniably easy to get caught up in the moment. I do not want to forget my senior year, but boy, am I ready to enjoy it.
