Hello World, it has been about 3 weeks since I’ve arrived here in Letterkenny and it is safe to say, I LOVE IT HERE! Everything in Letterkenny is really close and within walking distance, which is clutch because I’m not a fan of long walks anyways haha. Recently our house has been really chaotic because the rest of our roommates have moved in… all 5 of them. We currently have 8 people living in our house, males on the first floor and all of the females are on the second floor. I guess you can call it a “half mancave/frat, half sorority house !”  Our new roomies (in Faith’s voice), are really cool and chill, but a little shy obviously. The diversity is insane, we have 2 Italian boys (Val and Frederico),  1 German girl (Rebecca aka Becks), 1 French girl (Anice), 1 new American (Jon); along with Faith, Mak, and Myself. It’s kind of funny that Jon is here because I actually played against him this year in college. Unfortunately, his team beat my team and knocked us out of the top 25,  so I don’t think I can fully forgive him. But we’ll work something out since we’re teammates now haha! Jon is definitely a cool, laid back person and I can’t wait to see the damage we’ll do on court together!


At 8:54 am, I hear my alarm constantly buzzing on this wonderful Tuesday morning. I dread the sound of the alarm because I know I definitely have to get up. The only thing running through my mind is “WHY DO I HAVE TO GET UP RIGHT!” Welp, these are all of the thoughts I’m having on my first day of grad school. It’s crazy to say, “My First Day Of Grad School!” I was filled with many mixed emotions, to the point that I didn’t know what or how to feel. But sitting in my first class reassured everything, kinda sorta. I only have classes on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s which is a bonus. However, six hours of school, three Classes, each class is 2 hours and I have an hour break between each; along with practice at nights. So to say the least, My Tuesday’s and Thursday’s are jam packed! I can’t wait to see what this year has in-store for me. I was blessed with this opportunity from Sport Changes Life and the Rory Foundation, so I’m definitely going to take advantage of it!
