Athens, OH 28 October 2013 – This past weekend was Halloween here in Athens. As many people dressed up in creative costumes, and participated in the annual block party, I took off to Toledo and Illinois with the Ohio soccer team. Our conference play is wrapping up and it’s getting to be tournament time. We didn’t get the exact result we wanted and finished the weekend with a 1-1 result.
Traveling on the road is always hard, especially when we go far distances like Illinois. Many people think we have a lot of time to do our homework on the long drive, but doing your homework on a bus is not the most desirable thing in the world. There are many distractions such as watching a movie, playing card games, or not being able to read without getting sick. Luckily I don’t have the last problem, but I do have trouble not participating in the first two. We play a lot of euchre, and it’s one of my favorite games.
Besides soccer, school is wrapping up and I cannot believe where the semester went. We are in “week 10” and if we were still on the quarter system, this would mean finals week next week. Fortunately, we have five more weeks until we have to worry about that. However this week does mean midterms. I had most of mine last week, but a lot of my friends have theirs this week. I just have to keep thinking four more weeks until turkey time.
