It’s hard to describe how satisfying the first six months of 2012 have been. I finally had the track season I’ve been waiting for. I got into my number one college. I can afford my number one college. I got into the computer science house. High School is over. I actually went to a dance. With a date. Which was cool. I have the best group of friends I’ve ever known. I have an internship doing things I love for money. I will be running in college.
Things keep breaking my way and I’m loving it. I feel so lucky right now.
First of all there are really really fast people on my team. Steven Graham ran a 48.47 quarter, and Patrick ran a solo 4:18 mile.
Bruce, Josh, and I all ran fairly good early season times. Josh became just the 8th guy in school history to break 10 minutes for 2 miles, and Bruce ran a 10:02. I PRd by nearly 30 seconds to get a 10:10, hopefully I’ll be able to drop some time between now and the end of the season.
Fun fact: All 3 of us individually beat the winning girls 4x800 team which ran a combined 10:15 :p
Pandora, Spotify and the rest can only take you so far. I felt like I’d been just cycling through the same musicians for months. So I’ve gone exploring, and these are some of the things I’ve liked. (I don’t believe in “discovering” music)
If you haven’t heard them already, I would recommend listening to The Mistress (Album) by Yellow Ostrich. It’s an interesting mix of drums, acapella, and other goodie. Worth a listen. They have another album coming out in the next few months, so that’s exciting.
