I sometimes wonder what college life would have been like if I hadn’t played softball.If I simply graced this campus without adorning my maroon athletic gear each day. If I carried a purse with me to class like most of my female contemporaries, instead of my softball bat. If I talked about going to the gym as a social activity rather than a daily obligation comparable to studying and doing homework. If I had time for midday naps and Netflix binge-watching and Starbucks dates with friends. If my college experience had been different.
