We cannot rely on what others say about how or what it is to be happy. We are independent people who is capable of defining our own happiness. Not everyone’s view or perspectives are the same. Some, might believe that smoking is happiness. Others, might contradict to that and say that, that is…
I’m looking thru old pictures & reminiscing a lot tonight…LOL.
I think the thing I miss most about high school is cheering. My Junior Varsity team was hands down, THE SHIT. From placing first at every competition, to qualifying for nationals in L.A. Even tho we placed 4th at Nationals, it’s okay. I love my team more than anything. I remember everyday when I got to practice, I will say “Hey fam!” Cause all those girls were literally like family to me. Despite all our arguments, I LOVE THEM ALLL <3
Then Varsity year came along. My backbone/bestfriend, Hydee (third picture) couldn’t try out because of some family problems. And I thought to myself “senior year cheering w/o her is going to be like hell. Who is going to be my roommate at cheer camp?! What am I gunna do in chant lines during football and basketball season?” We went from hanging out everyday to not hanging out at all. But we decided to catch up with each other one day, and we just clicked. That’s why this girl is my bestfriend. No matter how far we grow away from each other, all we need is one phone call, one text, one day to hang out…and we will be like we never been apart from each other :) I love my backbone F0 LyF3! <3
Then senior year came along. Made Varsity again and I was one of the cheer captains that year. Throughout all my years of cheering, I would think I would be the most proud this year. The fact that i’m a 4 year senior cheerleader, and cheer captain…you would assume I was proud. But nope. I hated this year. All my team did was argue, every practice. There are times were I cussed my team out, I cried, I told my coaches I quit, I walked out of practice numerous times, I didn’t go to practice or cheer at the games, I didn’t even consider going to competition. I owed over $700 in cheer fines and missed out on ALL the senior events, including Senior Ball. I hated senior year. But now that I look back, I regret it. Why didn’t I just stick to it? That’s my team, my used to be “Fam.” If I can go back, I would of focused on cheer and been way more dedicated.
Moral of the story! LOL. Stay focused in high school. It’s over before you know it. Join clubs, have fun, make friends! Be open to step outside your comfort zone. & when you commit to something, you better stick to it!
Most of all, don’t let relationships ruin your academics. All I did senior year was cry in class over this player, that player. Look now, none of those guys are even in my life! (Thank God they’re not). Don’t ever let a highschool relationship throw you off track in school. Not worth it. The right guy will eventually come to you. <3
