I've almost got my first week of school done. Classes haven't been bad since it's the first week, so basically it has just been going through the syllabus and meeting people. This morning was kind of rough. We had to run at 6 a.m. and then I had to go to classes. That was a hard thing do because I was tired, and had to sit through three classes. Adjusting to no sleep and workouts, and classes might take some time. I'm sure there will be a lot more of that though. Friday night the team watched the movie Remember the Titans in the locker room, which gave us some time to bond.

Saturday was pretty much just a recovery time. I woke up kind of early to go cheer on other teammates that had to run the mile and half. That night, I went with some of my teammates to tailgate before the football game. Another teammate's family was tailgating and we got to eat some really good food. After that our team met up and we went to the Hoosier Room before the football game and met some new people. This was something interesting because I'm not good at putting myself out there to meet people. After the Hoosier Room, a couple of us went and watched the football game. We stayed until the fourth quarter because we wanted to see the birthday video we made for Coach Jack. It was pretty cool. The football game was fun too because we won!
