stoked

I found out last night that the UMD women’s club volleyball team got a spot at national championships in Dallas this April. And I’m stoked. There’s no other word for it. Incidentally, according to Merriam-Webster, “stoked” was added to the dictionary in 1965 and is a slang word. Excuse the word nerd digression – I have a degree in journalism, after all – but I guess this means I’m in the habit of using 40-year-old slang. Does that make me dated? I have no idea.

That news made my day. We have a lot of work to do in the next coming weeks. When I’m not in class or working on homework (for, oh, the hour or so a day when I force myself to do something), I’m trying to hit the gym. Hopefully it’ll be worth it – but I guess only time will tell.
