I’m not a real morning person, so I usually go to extra help on Tuesdays and Thursdays, when it’s in the middle of day. If I feel a little behind in a class, or am struggling in a class, I take care of that first. I’ll go on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday if I’m having a quiz or test in a class that day. It’s very helpful. I never had anything like extra help in my other school but the teachers here are always helpful.
4 p.m. - Baseball
I love Coach Elie and Coach Kinney. All the coaches are on the same page. I’ve been on teams where the coaches are thinking different things but I feel like the Baylor coaches work together perfectly. They really help us grow as a team.
6 p.m. - Dinner
After practice, I go to dinner. That’s a good time to visit with kids from other dorms but I mostly hang out with my Probo friends. It’s been good to make a lot of friends here.
After dinner, I take my shower and maybe play some PlayStation for a bit before study hours. Normally I study in my room but if I need total quiet, I may head over to the library. It depends on what’s going on. I usually have a little free time between 10 and bedtime, hanging out in the dorm.
