Buying gifts for others
What I’m really excited about this Christmas…I got my first job recently, so I can actually buy Christmas gifts for my family. I’m used to just receiving gifts and sometimes I feel bad about it, so this year I have the chance to go out and give Christmas gifts.
What are you looking forward to in the new year?
I run track, and right now it’s indoor season. So, New Year’s is kind of my time to build myself up to where I need to be for track season. I’m a sprinter, so for outdoor track I’m mainly a 400 runner. But when it comes to indoor, I kind of do everything.
All of the women in my family have run track. I got into it in sixth grade and I was like, “Wow! I love it.” It’s a stress reliever, especially with doing all that I do in high school. When I’m stressed out, I can go and run and release that stress.
I want to run in college. I’ve applied to five colleges and have gotten into two so far – with a lot of scholarship money, so I’m thankful for that. So, I’m just waiting to hear from a couple more and I’ll figure out where I want to go.
