  • A Week With Me, Part 2

    by Nick Rush | Feb 24, 2017
    <p>Back in the fall I posted what I did during a normal week. Since then, with a new semester, my schedule has evolved into something new. I wanted you to get a feel for what a week would be like with me now that baseball season is underway and I have new classes. Let&rsquo;s begin!</p> <p>Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I always start my mornings with breakfast. I have classes at 9, 10, and 11, so I wake up at 8 to eat before my 9am. I eat lunch following my 11am which takes me up until about 12:30. After that, it really just depends on how much homework I have. Usually I like to come back and do homework until 2:30ish, leading me to baseball practice. Baseball players here normally start arriving for a 3:30 practice around 2:45 to get extra practice in, and I like to be one of those guys. After practice, I head to dinner. I eat in Haist Commons with the rest of my team. Once I get to my room and get cleaned up, relaxing always sounds great, but usually I have some homework to do because the classes I decided to take this semester are a bit harder. When I don&rsquo;t have homework, I like to just lay around my room and watch TV or play guitar. Usually I&rsquo;m drained from practice, so weekday nights are pretty lazy.</p> <p>My Tuesdays are a bit different because I only have one class form 8-9:15. What makes it different is that I go to work at Claypool Elementary to read with the students. I go straight from class and arrive back to campus around 12. Also, I&rsquo;m a back-up lunch host for a job where I eat with prospective students from 12-1, but either way I&rsquo;m eating lunch at that time. From then on, the afternoon plays how I said before. On Thursday, I still have my 8am but I also have a class from 9:30-10:45. Once I&rsquo;m done there, I head back to my room to chill for an hour or so, then I actually do lunch host prospective students from 12-1. Yet again, the afternoon follows the other 4 days of the week.</p> <p>As of right now, my weekends consist of practicing, homework, guitar, and just relaxing. Starting March 4, though, the baseball team starts its weekend games. So, I will either have doubleheaders on campus, or I will be playing at another college. Aside from baseball on the weekends, there won&rsquo;t be much time for relaxation. I plan to do homework &ndash; if I even have any &ndash; on the bus ride or when I get back on Sunday nights.</p> <p>This is a bit different from my Fall semester but it&rsquo;s all the same concept: class, practice, homework, relax. My schedule may be different from others because of being a student-athlete, deciding to take somewhat harder classes during season, and working 3 jobs (yes, that is all possible). Whatever homework I have I get done with plenty of time to relax and do other activities.
