Transition Periods {Back to Cambridge!}

After getting back into the swing of things in New Jersey over the summer, I’m now transitioning back to life in Cambridge! I moved back in yesterday {I’m a sophomore at Harvard}, and things {surprisingly} already feel settled.

Transition periods can be a bit rough — the anticipation of a change, moving from one atmosphere to another, and so on and so forth; but they can also be fun. It’s been great to see everyone & be back in Massachusetts! I saw my crew teammates for the first time today, and I’m super excited for the fall racing seasons for both crew and triathlon.

Some tips for transition periods –

  • Stay organized. Last year when I moved in I brought WAY too much stuff & I wasn’t very organized. I’m making an effort to keep my room a lot more organized this year. Transitioning from one place to another {or from one point in your life to another} can be a lot less overwhelming if you’re organized.
  • Embrace the change. Worrying about the change in your life will only create more stress! Stay positive & excited for what’s to come.

See below for some pictures from my transition week 🙂
