Since my last post I have been incredibly busy hitting the books studying for final exams! I am happy to say that today I am officially finished my freshman year of civil engineering! WOW! How did it go by so quickly? I could never have imagined how much I enjoyed this year. I have really been enjoying school the past few weeks. Its the first time since before ski season that I have been able to get into a rhythm and have a set schedule. It was nice. My marks really took an upturn since the end of the ski season and I feel like my exams went fairly well! Today I showed up to hand over and test my final project in Matlab (a computer programming course). We had to make a computer script which would tell the iRoomba robot (you know the little robot which is actually a vacuum) to sweep an area looking for "survivors" in a "disaster zone". Our teacher set up rocks, water jugs, "cliffs" (black paper) and walls which our robot had to navigate. It was really cool to see something that I designed on the computer take shape in real life....well sort of. As I walked out afterwards I felt an immediate sense of FREEDOM!!! And the thought "Well what should I do now?". And as usual that thought led me to the great gym on campus for a spin and lower body. This April/ May has been great for my favourite activities of running and playing tennis. I even got new grips for my tennis racket....BRIGHT Pink (So I'd better improve my game quickly!!!!). About a week and a half ago I ran 10 miles! That is the furthest I have ever gone! So its been a great spring!
Today I can officially say that I have been selected to once again be on the Canadian Team! I am SUPER excited to represent Canada and the University of Vermont in the upcoming season! I will keep everyone updated throughout the summer!
Thanks for all the well wishes and support it couldnt have been done without you!
