Sometimes I realize that in the moment, I can easily make things far more dramatic than they seem. In a school like Middlebury, often we balance 2,3,4, even 5 activities at once, trying to put 100% effort into all of them because we are young and motivated. This week has been a whirlwind and I’ve realized that after running from practice to class to practice to the library, I haven’t even taken a second to process anything I have felt or done. Today I did just this by sitting outside, drinking tea and calling my mom, recalling all the tough workouts and long nights in the library. By taking a step back, I realized how much I have done in the past 5 days, but how little I have stopped to enjoy my success and share my news with someone I care about. From now on, I think I am going to make calling home a Saturday tradition.
