Making the Most of My Weekend

Weekend Fun

Everyone looks forward to the weekend. But is the weekend worth the hype if you don’t make the most of it? When I have a free weekend, I most definitely make having a relaxing and fun few days my top priority.

When I am not traveling to New York or Chicago for basketball games, I like kicking my weekend off with a shower and a big breakfast. Nothing starts your day better than some eggs, ham, and Netflix! Afterwards I either catch up on some homework, or I go out into Pittsburgh to find something to do. Whether I go to a museum or just walk around the Waterfront, this part of my day usually involves a lot of walking. This clears my head and settles me down after a long week of tests, homework, and late nights in Skibo gym.

Later on in the day, I usually drop by the gym to get some shots up. I like training, lifting, or just running games on my own time because nothing beats working on a skill that you are good at and are very passionate about! However, the exercise makes me painfully hungry so I usually go out to get some food with my teammates or some of my friends. The choice usually ends up being Chipotle or the Exchange. Then, later that night, I like to do one of four things:

  1. See a movie at the Waterfront
  2. Play the Catan board game
  3. Go play more basketball
  4. Get on Facetime with my girlfriend

And on occasion, I might spend time with the SPIRIT crew or cook out with some of my teammates!

On Sunday, I like to be as relaxed as possible. I like to catch up on some homework, get some shots up if I can, and watch Sunday night football. This part of my weekend is also the most depressing because the five-day cycle of overwhelming class work begins again the next day. But, the weekend makes it all worth it!
