If I could give advice to myself four years ago, or even to my teammates now, it would be to have more fun.
H A V E F U N!
G O PLAY!

Very meaningful words, because fun and play are associated with good times, happiness, togetherness, memories. Sometimes I hate the fact that I am such an introvert, and that I am perfectly happy vegging in my room, painting my nails, or catching up on magazines.
I wish I had more fun. I don't think it would have hurt. In fact, it could have made me better.
Just like you fuel your body with food and water, I think you need to fuel your psyche and your soul with fun. I really do envy those that are so carefree and always endlessly search for fun. I feel that I could have been less uptight, focused better, and performed better if I had let my self loose and had fun.
Of course there is a limit, and that one needs to keep a balance of relationships, faith, and education in check, but man oh man did I not put much emphasis in relationships.
These past weekends have made me realize what I've been missing, I am utterly exhausted, but so happy, excited for the next day.
So have some fun. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable, because it might just be the best night of your life.
