Andddd it’s time once again to spend the weekend at Northeast Conference Championships in Nassau County, New York. Of all the meets of the entire season, this one is by far the hardest. My involvement in our team here at Sacred Heart has lowered tremendously, from competing athlete and teammate who attends every practice and... Continue Reading →


I guess it's time to move forward. I haven't wanted to in the past few weeks, but I've had to, and quickly. I've been doing everything I've had to do since I woke up on Wednesday morning, the day after it happened. I'm not there yet. I'm not really there when I do things. I'm... Continue Reading →


It's only been a week and I haven't made much more peace with any of this. I haven't been able to wrap my head around the fact that the cycle is starting again. That the doctor's appointments, medication changes, and tests are going to start again. Everytime I try to tell myself that everything will... Continue Reading →

This may sound odd, but it was a tough one. I was more hesitant to join a sorority than... Continue Reading →


With the new year comes New Year's resolutions. In past years, I've made goals I haven't been able to keep. It's disappointing, but it's common. When I used to practice at a YMCA, after our winter break, we began practicing again on January 2nd. Those first few weeks of January, the YMCA would fill up.... Continue Reading →


As I sit here thinking about how blessed I am to have such wonderful holidays spent with the people I love, I feel so blessed for the opportunities and love in my life. With that thought came the reflection of how 2018 has been, and unbelievably quickly it went by. As I get older, the... Continue Reading →


When I sat down for my first day of sixth grade, I never expected that one of the most important people in my life would be sitting a few rows away from me. I didn't really know what really friendship meant. There were kids that I hung out with from time to time. Some of... Continue Reading →
