Half-Way Point

Wow, it’s June and we’re already at the half way point of this year!

Lots of things have already this year and it doesn’t seem like it’ll be slowing down anytime soon.   In January, I came back from Japan after a three month, study-abroad prgram.  Speaking of which, I miss my friends out there.

After coming back, I started judging a bunch of boys competitions as I returned right at the beginning of the season.  It was fun as I got to judge all the way up to regionals this year!  Also, as soon as I came back to the US, I went straight into intensive rehab at Stanford to get my knee back shape after hurting it at last year’s Japan Cup.  It was only a few weeks ago that I got fully released from rehab and to go back to training without any restrictions.

Now I feel like I’m finally back into a consistent schedule of work (I currently have 3 part-time jobs) and training.  While the combination does put a toll on the body and mind, I’m grateful not to be in school anymore.  Juggling school, gymnastics, and my part-time work as a tutor was definitely tough.  Having school out of the equation is definitely a huge weight off my shoulders.

Speaking of which, a lot of the students should be finishing up their school year right about now.  Good luck to everyone with their final exams and Happy Summer!
