What Sara has learned at Stanford

I can't believe how fast these months have gone! I feel like it was just yesterday I was supposed to be signing that NLI (National Letter of Intent). From Toni and I going to Stanford camp before both our Junior and Senior years, to summer school, to moving in to dorms, to preseason, to now our first real game!

This is what we have been waiting for! But still, through all the stressful times trying to get to class or trying to keep up with practice at the beginning of the year, I am still in awe of this amazing place. I felt like I was in a dream running out on the court for the first time in the Vanguard game. Every step will be new experience for us freshman, but we are enjoying every minute of it. As Tara said to the three of us before the first game, "Never let the excitement of putting on that Stanford jersey go away."

These past few months at Stanford have been great, despite the many bike incidents I have had. Having the whole summer here to bond and play with the team was a huge key to our development as freshman.

But here are a few things I have learned so far:

  1. Don't lock only the wheel of your bike to the bike rack. You will come out of class with only a wheel.

  2. Jimmy V's is delicious.

  3. Keep an eye on your phone at all times. Do not expect people to return it.

  4. While riding your bike through intersections on campus, do not turn your head one direction for a long period of time. Someone is most likely coming from the other direction.

  5. Receiving mail has the power to make your day twice as good.

  6. Jimmy V's is delicious.

  7. Brunch in the dorms on the weekends is tasty as well.

  8. The Stanford Band is crazy, but awesome.

  9. And, our fans are the best!

See you at the games!
