When you were younger, you played sports for fun. Most of the time, it was your parents who signed you up for activities such as sports to get you out of the house and out of their hair.

Your mind is a crazy thing. What's even crazier is the things that it allows you to do and the things it holds you back from. As an athlete the mind is just another aspect to overcome. For some, it's a bigger obstacle than others. It's a thing where seeing the glass half full can get you a lot...

This past weekend, my lacrosse team traveled to Washington, D.C. for a game. While we were there we got the opportunity to visit some of the monuments, including the White House. The inside was not as big as I had imagined, which was a let down. We also visited two museums:  the Air and Space Museum,...

As the first game of my lacrosse season begins today, so does the stress of having zero time. It's only Monday and I'm already having anxiety and feeling rushed.

Returning back to school towards the end of January felt like it came too soon for me. I was not ready to be back at school. Mostly I was not ready for my last season of lacrosse.

Women constantly whine and complain claiming that chivalry is dead. For those of you just checking into the world who didn't realize that they complain about it, newsflash, they do! You can go back to the death of chivalry and wonder did it just die - or was it murdered? My usual guess, Col. Mustard...
