Back in Tiger Town

So today concludes the end of my first weekend back in Clemson. I haven't been to school since Last December and I wasn't sure how it would feel when I got back. But as I got off the last exit, and saw the sky painted in Orange and Purple, it put a smile on my face and it felt like I hadn't missed a day. There's something about this place, 4 years into it, I still haven't figured it out. I don't know if it's the people, the city, the skies? I don't know...but something about Clemson always makes me happy. I'm not playing soccer anymore, so waking up that first day for class, and ending at 12:15 with nothing to do for the rest of the day was a little weird. Sooo, I headed over to practice with the guys. Being out on the field but not really being on the team definitely felt weird. I saw the freshman running as hard as they could, nervous from the pressure but excited for the opportunities ahead. I can't believe 4 years ago, I was a freshman, 18 years old and sitting out the first few days of preseason because I was ineligible. Then zooom, four years later, I'm out just knocking the ball around with Bryson and Hector and my career here is over. I thought I'd be sad about it all, but I don't think it will really hit me up until I'm sitting in Riggs Stadium and watching that first game, instead of playing.

I'm excited to be back, to see all the guys on the team, my friends that are still here and all my favorite professors. This semester should be interesting and I'm looking forward to it.

I'm back in Tiger Town.
