It’s absolutely crazy how quickly time has been going by here in Lexington. We have played 11 games already, with our 12th being today! (We’re 10-1 YAY!) It seems like not too long ago that we were just starting preseason, and now we are in the first full week of classes!
It’s definitely been a fun past few weeks. We had three weeks of preseason, which was so much fun and it was also super productive. I got the chance to really get to know my teammates (whom I love a lot!!!), and we also worked super hard in the gym to get 1% better every practice. Last week was O-Week, so all of the freshman learned a lot about the school and we met lots of new people!
Basically, I’m really enjoying things in Lex all around. It’s definitely a different culture for me, coming from the midwest, but I’ve really had a lot of fun learning about the different things people do here in the south. Like monograms are not a thing in Illinois, but everyone here seems to have one, and I had never heard of Lilly or Rainbows before coming here! I’m also absolutely loving the weather. It has been so much warmer than it would be back home at this time and I am completely okay with that. People here keep telling me that I have an accent though, and I absolutely refuse to believe that because clearly people from Chicago don’t speak any differently than normal! (We might say our a’s a little differently, but that’s not considered having an accent…)
