My senior year was about as atypical or uncharacteristic as it gets. After spending the summer training hard I counted the days until school started anticipating the dance parties, bowling, karaoke, and other adventures. Saying I didn’t quite get my fill this year of the unique GMVS life would be an understatement. I spent about 20 days in total at school as the majority of my senior year was with the U.S. Ski Team. Rather than growing distant from the people at GMVS, my absence brought us closer and made us savor every moment.
