February break is coming round the corner and I couldn't be happier! Most people refer to February break as Ski week but skiing is definitely NOT what I am doing this break. Instead of cold, icy weather I'm dippin' out of PC and heading to Arizona and Mexico!! I am traveling to Arizona with my soccer team for a college showcase, and Mexico with my friends.
Arizona: A hot desert with no water, scorpions, orange rocks, dead grass, and lots of sun... who would ever want to hold a National soccer showcase there? Well... that's where I am going for part of break. Every year Del Sol, AZ holds a national showcase with over 413 teams and 270 college coaches from all over the United States. You must apply to the tournament, and if you reach their "standards" you have the chance of getting accepted... and my team got accepted! This is going to be such a cool experience because there will be lots college coaches like from Stanford, Vanderbilt, UC Davis, North Western and many more. I get really nervous before tournaments but I have never been to a real showcase with teams from all over the nation, and coaches from everywhere so I'm wayyy nervous. Something else, I am super excited for is rooming with my teammates, my coach assigned us rooms of 4 and I got a hella good room with a girl from SLC, Mckinna Lee, and Kate Young... they're really chill Sophomores and am sooo stoked. Anywhooo, that is basically the summary of my trip to Arizona, my roommates, the nervousness I am experiencing... but after AZ I'm dippin' out of the country and heading to...
Mexico!! I am traveling to Mexico with Grace Dalton, and Bella Criscione. We are going to Punta Mita which is a small surf town by Puerto Vallarta and it is going to be sooo fun I can't even put it into words. We leave for Mexico at 6am Monday the 20th and take a quick pit stop in LA then fly to Mexico. Although I am way stoked for Mexico tbh I am low key nervous, the last 2 times I have been to Mexico I have gotten way sick so I really don't want that to happen. But don't worry, I have a plan it involves... quesadillas, and bottled soda and water that way there is not as large of a possibility of me getting sick... i hope :/ But that is way besides the point. In Mexico we are going to surf, tan, jet ski, boat, fish, snorkel and it is going to be so fun I can't wait!!
In conclusion, February break is going to be AMAZING and I can't wait... Catcha' later alligator!
