We’ve been here for over a month now! On one hand, it’s flown by, but at the same time it feels like we’ve been here forever. It’s definitely an adjustment from preseason to regular season; we go from all of our energy going towards volleyball to having to prioritize and learn time management… but classes and meeting non-fall athletes has been so fun! That said, volleyball is still going full speed ahead and when we’re in the gym it’s all we focus on. It’s so nice to have an outlet each day where we can focus on something totally different than studying, and the fact that our team is so positive as a whole makes that even more enjoyable. I can’t believe how quickly the season is flying by! I was just looking at our schedule earlier today and realized we are basically halfway done our games for the season! …Regular season, that is. We’re still working hard toward our goal of a national championship, and luckily that goal comes with the benefit of more games!
Life outside of volleyball has been quite busy recently, but totally fun too. I’m taking classes very different from those I took in high school, and while that makes it more challenging, it also keeps things interesting. Philosophy, Psychology, Photography, and Spanish are what I’m spending my fall term working on. I feel like I should have taken another class that started with a “P” and ended in a “Y” instead of Spanish to keep with my unintentional theme… just kidding. But seriously classes have been really great so far. A lot of work, but I mean we’re at Washington and Lee- that’s expected! Getting to know people outside of volleyball is also fun. While I love the team, it’s always nice to meet new people and make new friends. Rush Dates have began, and sororities are more on our radars recently, and that just adds to the excitement of what the future has in store for us. Rush dates are also fun because they’re an excuse to eat at yummy places in town…
I probably should get back to homework, but until next time,
Elizabeth (or Liz, Lizard, Lizzy, Killer… have your pick)
P.S. “Killer” is referring to athletics, not anything concerning haha
Here is a picture of the freshmen from a few weeks ago! It was one of our first times together where we aren’t wearing spandex and a t-shirt, so this was a big moment. #girly
