All I can say is wow! So many thoughts running through my mind at a thousand miles per second it seems. It feels like just the other day I was getting ready to take my recruiting trip to the U of U and now I’m a student here. So many feelings, some happy, some sad. I find myself getting just a tad bit home sick when I look at the many pictures of my friends and family from back home; but at the same time I’m excited! Excited for my first day of class, excited to meet new people and learn new things. I find myself getting excited for track season, how I’m going to get to travel and see new places, try new things and venture out of my shell. How this time in my life is supposed to be special, filled with moments that will be forever etched into my memory, and of course that small thought in the back of my mind, the one we all seem to have: That negative voice that tells me that maybe, just maybe, I signed up for more than I can handle.
