Well summer is half-way over. As usual, I've been keeping busy. I have to say, it's been a hot summer so far, and I've already made many trips to the beach, working on my summer tan! I'm excited to say that my teammates, Sissy Pickett and Jamila Veasley, and I have found our apartment! After a lot of worry and stress, we finally found a great 3 bedroom to stay in, and I can't wait to move in! I'm glad I have my summer job at the Student Health Center at UCLA because the apartment wasn't cheap. On top of working, I am also attending summer school. Classes are good, my teacher is very funny, and I'm understanding the material. I'm taking a class on psychological statistics, which involves some math, not my favorite subject.
As for basketball, we just finished our overnight camp, definitely hard work. If I was tired after the camp, I know the campers must be exhausted. Regardless, we had a lot of fun, and I'm sure the campers also enjoyed themselves.
I've been working out all summer with some of my teammates, along with girls from other sports. Everyone has been doing well, and we improve every week. Since our schedules are so different, we don't always get to play together, and many of us are in the Say No basketball league over at USC. I have been playing in the Wooden Center with the guys, trying to keep in basketball shape. I can't wait until our freshmen arrive and we all can begin playing as a team!
I can't believe this will be my last summer. Four years went by fast! I'm excited for this next year; we have some amazing players on our team. I still have half the summer to go, so lets hope for more good weather, good basketball, and good times!
