SPRING BREAK

Well, it is finally over. Our one week divider between “I have enough time to learn everything” and “OH crap, there is no way.” Spring Break was awesome this year. It started with a track meet at LC (finally.) It was awesome. I started with a nasty crash in the hammer, but after that I did fairly well. Professor Paul Allen of the math department came and watched the shot put and discus competitions. I love that professors are willing to come out and support their athletes. It shot put, I qualified for the NWC Championship meet.

Then, on Sunday I watched 11 straight hours of a Ken Burns documentary on the American Civil war of the 19th century. That was amazing. Monday and Tuesday I spent the mornings practicing and the evenings with my lovely girlfriend. It was very relaxing. We got the opportunity to watch Red Tails. It was a good movie, but not the best acting.  Wednesday morning I practiced again, and then got on board the Amtrak and headed for Tacoma, Washington.

In Tacoma I visited my younger brother at the University of Puget Sound. It was awesome to see him in his environment. I went to his work in the morning. Met some of his team mates (he plays football for UPS.) Friday morning I was back on the Amtrak and headed for Portland. That was a long travel day because we had another meet on Friday. I went from the car, to the train, to the bus all in a 3 hour span.

This track meet was at Willamette. That was another solid performance. I threw 2 personal records for the second straight week. My parents were at this meet too. It was nice to hang with them in between my throws.

Now, we only have 3 and a half weeks left for classes. That is not a lot of time. I have to learn a piano piece early because our final recital is the same day as the NWC Championship meet. I have a 7 page paper due for my Ancient Rome Class. I have to finish a program for my final project in Computer Science. I am not too worried about Spanish. And then there is Calc 4.   LLLLLLLL. And that’s how I feel about that.

 

 

Almost there,

Matt
