This week has been so busy for me, but so many different and great opportunities have happened for me. I have been practicing a lot this week for both water polo and swimming, and I have been trying really hard to focus on myself lately. I have been talking to a lot of coaches and players to get some outside perspectives and it has really been working lately. I practiced at APU on Wednesday and Thursday and it was a lot of fun! I talked to the coach after practice on Thursday morning and he asked me, "do you always have to rip it up when you are out there?" I though it was such a great ego buster. It helped me so much this past week. I know that I have talent and I know that I am good at water polo but sometimes it is great to hear it because usually I only hear the negatives and forget that there are even positives out there when it comes to how I play. Not only did the coach from APU tell me that on Thursday, but my coach at FC told me how great of a job I was doing on Wednesday night. It meant a lot more coming from Gabriel my Fullerton coach because I respect and cherish his opinion. Last semester during my water polo season Gabriel yelled at me the most out of everyone. It is very rare that I got a compliment from him but on Wednesday when he did tell me how great I was doing lately, it really made me want to work harder and set new goals. I cannot wait to get started and I got started working on it a lot earlier today. I have been up since 5am and I think it is about time to hit the hay and call it a night.
