A window inside life at Augustana College

Writer’s Block

Hello friends!

It’s been awhile huh? Well quick recap of what has been happening since Jan 13. I started my first season with the women’s lacrosse team, I sustained my first concussion, I couldn’t go on spring break with my team, my team has 7 wins of 7 games in 6 states including 2 conference wins, and I am pledging!

So first thing first, concussion talk! I was at practice when I tried to catch a pass that was just out of my reach when it tipped the top of the head of my stick, I looked down to search where the ball went and instead the ball came straight down and hit me. I didn’t think much of it until I had a headache from noon until I went to bed that night (so around midnight-ish). I emailed the trainer and sure enough I had a symptomatic concussion. That was all on Feb 4. I started seeing a doctor in Bettendorf who told me that my concussion was worse than we all expected. With that being said, she suggested I not go on spring break with my team and instead go home…to Colorado. So, I made an impromptu visit to my home and boy was it needed! When I came back it was only three weeks until I got the clearance to start the return to play protocol and I couldn’t be happier right now! I was out for a little over five weeks and I never want that to happen again.

Next on our list of topics is the winning season (so far) of the Augustana Women’s Lacrosse team! I honestly couldn’t imagine being a part of any other team anywhere else. I seriously have the best of the best. We have been lucky enough to have a perfect (so far) record including conference. Our next game will be one of the toughest but I know we will pull through together.

And finally, pledging! I  am lucky enough to be a part of the wonderful Delta Chi Theta. This group of girls is incredible and I really couldn’t picture myself anywhere else or with anyone else.

Now as to why I am writing this post. I have THE worst case of writers block right now and I was hoping this would help unblock me.. It kinda has but not enough for me to crank out a paper. Shoot! Oh well, maybe I’ll write again soon…

Peace, Love, and Lacrosse season is here,
Andie
