Reaction: Instead of just walking back from practice aimlessly, I took the time to reflect on my thoughts. I didn’t want music, I enjoyed a break of noise and allowed myself to be quiet and clear my mind. I was nervous about the tournament and needed to process my thoughts and feelings. I’m glad this journal assignment has made me aware of all the little moments I can take advantage of throughout the day.

Journal Entry 4 Date: 10/1 Nutrition: Activity: Ate a salad at dinner. Spinach mix with carrots, ham cubes, onions, and ranch dressing. Reaction to the activity: This salad actually tasted pretty good today. Although I’m still not a big fan of the spinach mix, the toppings made it good. Emotional/spiritual: Activity: Went for a drive with music. Because of the rain, I once again was unable to go for a walk. Time: 20 minutes Intensity: I needed to go to the store, so after I finished shopping I drove on some back roads around the lake and took some time to relax. It made me feel better about taking the time, since I already had to go off campus to the store anyway. Reaction: I was pretty tired yesterday, so I played my favorite calming driving playlist and enjoyed the drive. It was really nice, and because of the rain I had to slow my driving down a little which almost made it more relaxing in a way.

Date: 10/3 Nutrition: Activity: Ate a salad at lunch. Spinach/romaine mix, carrots, onions, ham cubes, ranch dressing. Reaction: So far I still feel the same way about salad. Hopefully I will begin to want one, but for now I am still working on trying to find ways for me to like it. Emotional/spiritual: Activity: Had a long bus ride to Boston for a match today. Spent a little bit of that time to myself while listening to music. Time: 20 minutes Intensity: Very calm. It was on the way back, most of my teammates were asleep, and it was dark on the bus. Reaction: It felt good to decompress after such a long, non-stop day. I just put on calm music and focused on relaxing both my body and mind. I really didn’t think of anything, my mind had been racing all day and I just tried to focus on nothing during that time. Date: 10/5

Nutrition: Activity: Ate a salad at lunch. Spinach mix, carrots, onions, Italian dressing. Reaction: The options in the cafeteria weren’t great for me today, so I actually kind of wanted a salad. Maybe this process is actually going to work and make me like salad. I’ll keep at it and see what happens! Emotional/Spiritual: Activity: Drove to Boston to pick up my brother for fall break. Time: 2 hours Intensity: For the most part relaxing, until I got into the city and it was a little crazy. Reaction: It had been a long time since I had gone on such a long drive. It was nice, but I’m feeling so overloaded right now, the length of time seemed extensive since I felt like I had so much I should’ve been doing instead. I had a very hard time relaxing and don’t feel like I ever really accomplished being fully calm, but I tried to play fun music to lighten my mood. Also, I was very excited to be with my brother, so overall I was very happy about the trip.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
