As one of many full-time students who also works for the athletics department, the week we all wait for is finally here. I took my last final exam yesterday and can officially say that I am on winter break…sort of. While I will still have work and the start of swimming and diving’s home schedule in a week, the idea of getting to leave work and just relax is something I have been waiting for since August.
This semester has definitely been a test of my mental strength to say the least. I have had to balance four very difficult classes along with my first season working with men’s soccer. The experience has been rewarding and has me more excited than ever to finish school.
Throughout the next month, I look forward to taking advantage of my extra time normally spent on school work. Along with finally getting back to my normal gym regiment, I will spend the next month preparing for the start of FAU’s spring schedule including numerous home swim meets and my second year working the men’s golf tournament.
I am also thrilled to have the honor of working with the media relations department for the 2014 BCS National Championship game in Pasadena, CA. The opportunity is one that I am still in shock about as I contacted their media relations department hardly expecting to hear back. So, there is definitely much to look forward to in the next month as I look toward my final semester of school and a very busy spring for FAU Athletics.
