As mentioned last week, I went to my sister's first cheer competition in Warner Robins! Although she participated in competition cheerleading at the middle school level, she took a break during her first two years of high school, thought she was completely over it, and found herself drawn back into it with the arrival of junior year. It's amazing how some things people never shake!
Anyway, I thought I would share a few photos (Now that I am thinking about it, I didn't even bother asking permission to post these pictures of her...Oops!), which just happened to turn into a photoshoot in front of IHOP...which is kind of embarrassing. It should be noted, that this the first full-length post with more than one photo (Wowza!)!
^^This is the dress I got to go with my sneakers after the Irma fiasco. Shoutout to Belk for conveniently having team colors at a low price! The first picture is probably the best picture of it!
^^ I tried crepes for the first time ever on Saturday at IHOP, and they are so good and unique! And yes, that is Nutella...
This week has been odd (Some days more odd than others for other reasons than the following...). It has definitely been about regrouping from that ten-day, unplanned vacation and jumping back into the routine of classes. Fortunately, most due dates were extended, which has eased the transition, but I was surprised by the administration of an exam from my post-Constitutional American history class on Wednesday. There was an initial shock with given just two days to prep, not going to lie, but if you can't acclimate to change, you won't survive. However, with history, it comes natural, and with questions and essays, there is the reliability of my reason to guide me. I reason and rule things out. Dare I say that it's my second nature? It's also why I am enamored with history, because it forces me to think. Now, I patiently wait to establish the efficiency of this second nature, and if it is worth even remotely celebrating, I might just treat myself.
Today, I am serving as one of the secondary leaders that will discuss three utopian stories. While I would love to say that I am absolutely thrilled to express a few ideas, I'd much rather listen and analyze my peers' thoughts. You do what is necessary to earn a grade though, right? This weekend has been designated as a catchup weekend of both sleep and assignments, and I may even scoot to the library to do some research for a research paper (just one of two I have this semester...). Big plans in a 48-hour time frame, no?
Oh, and I'm excited to finally say this: Happy first day of Fall!
