My word today is fidgety. Tomorrow I am going to visit a college and meet the coach of the college. The university is in my state, but I feel it is a big step in my life. This makes me realize how close I am to changing my life forever, the life I am used to and know well. I am nervous and I just can’t seem to stop fidgeting. I am a little scared, too.
At cross-country practice today, my track coach also brought me a letter from the Naval Academy. I waited until I made it home from practice, and my mom and I opened it together. The letter informed me that the academy would love to have me attend, I could even run for them if I pleased. And once again, I began to fidget. When the year ends and the time comes, I hope I am ready to leave and follow my heart.
