Pushing the Limits

Early in the semester, I went and played some basketball with the Lady Eagles. To make a long story short, I walked out of the Sports Center Arena with a headache and with a bruise all the way around my lower leg, which is still there as we speak. I honestly don’t know a lot about the positions and rules of basketball, but I love to play! I spent the entire summer practicing in the front yard of my house in anticipation of trying out for this year’s team.

After the few scrimmages we had that night, I left feeling highly embarrassed and very self-conscious; however, I later realized that even if my game was…to say the least, not that great, I still got a lot of experience and pointers that night. I played basketball with an entire team who had all this skill, and all I had was self-taught knowledge.

At the end of it all, I actually didn’t try out for the team, mainly because I wanted to gain some more experience and practice A LOT more, but the real lesson I learned that night was that I did something that was completely out of my comfort zone: I pushed the limits.

Well, after that long-winded story, I feel like it’s formally time for me to introduce myself. Hey everyone! My name, as you can see at the bottom of this post, is Alex! I am a sophomore Criminal Justice major from the beautiful state of California, and I am very excited to be able to write to y'all sharing my college experience and insights with you.

I wanted to start my first ever blog post off with a theme that I hope to keep throughout the semester called “Pushing the Limits.” My goal with this theme is to encourage you all to push your own limits spiritually, academically, and socially.

 For with God nothing shall be impossible.” —Luke 1:37

Student body, I want to challenge you to push your own limits whether it be striving to be better in academics, striving to make more friends, striving to be more active in sports, and most importantly, striving to grow your relationship with God.

Are you ready?
