A day in the life of Mike Burwell...

8 a.m. - My alarm clock goes off.  I hit the snooze button before I finally wake up. This normally takes me some time.

8:25 a.m. - I freshen up and get dressed for class.

9-9:50 a.m. - Report to my first class - "Conflict Resolution."

10-10:50 a.m. - Head over to "PAWS" restaurant on campus to have breakfast with a few athletes from various sports teams.

11-11:50 a.m. - Report for my second and final class of the day, "Community Corrections." Once class finishes I will normally do a dance of excitement then make my way over to the Towson Center to catch the 12 p.m. bus.

12:30-3:30 p.m. - Practice time - which means: another opportunity to develop my game and create better chemistry with my team. Following practice, I go get a nice lift then hit the cold tub. Taking care of my body is very important.

4:30-6 p.m. - Study hall time. I take advantage of this time because it gives me a chance to get work done in a quiet academic setting.

6 p.m. - Team dinner time. Dinner is always good food and good times with my teammates. It gives us a chance to catch up on things going on in each other's lives. After dinner I have a few hours of free time to my disposal, so I kick my feet up and play some "friendly" games of FIFA and Halo with my teammates.  Of course, that gets more and more intense over time.

9 p.m. - The gym is available so I go put in extra time to work on my game.

10 p.m. - I leave the gym, go grab a bite to eat then find my bed...This is probably the highlight of my day. There is no better feeling than lying down after a long productive day.
