Aaaaaaaaand WE’RE BACK! What’s up errrbuddy!
Well, I have to say, being home is something else. Never in my life have I appreciated my Verizon Fios DVR so much. There is nothing like waking up and being able to make my own fruit smoothies and over-easy eggs. Driving my car was the best thing ever. And don’t even get me going about my own bed, my own bathroom, and my energy-absorbing bum couch where I would lie wrapped in a Tufts blanket eating popcorn and watching the playoffs for hours on end.
I must’ve slipped something into my friends’ drinks when I got back. It was far too easy to get people to come to my house to hang out so I wouldn’t have to change out of my sweatpants, leave my hot tub, or spend any money on gas. The New Year’s Eve party I went to was literally, LITERALLY right next door. We’re talking like 20 yards from my front door. I got all of about nothing productive done over break (aside from lifting, running, throwing, and hitting in preparation for the 2013 baseball season). No school obligations, no work, no essays or online tests, nothing. Life. Was. GOOD. And the Cali sun? HELLO! For all of you interested in what the west coast has to offer, check out the pics.
Now don’t get me wrong, I was ready to get back to school. After seeing everyone I’d missed over the break, I felt at home again. Yeah yeah, buying books, going to new classes, and trying to get your life back in order is just the busy work. But college only happens once and it’s time for a fun second semester.
TIME FOR THE GRIND. Captains’ practices are in full swing. This morning we all got up for a 7:00 am practice, followed closely by some Dewick and a four-hour nap. We have our annual 100 inning game on Wednesday, lift and run testing coming up in a few weeks, and plenty of work to do in the cages and on the field. It’s work time, and the team is looking good. REAL good.
