Before I get started on the post, I wanted to share a few photos from spirit week-
For our race, we were given the option to make a poster for one of the girls running. Of course I jumped on this opportunity! I love my team and even though posters aren't my thing, I wanted to help motivate the team as much as I could so I went out and picked up poster paper as well as some acrylic stones! (I just saw them and they were too cute!)
After about two hours with my poster, these stones, glue, markers, and glitter, I was able to create this lovely poster-
I was debating whether to give my poster a theme or now. Eventually I settled on a theme of dogs because the person who would be receiving this post loved dogs! I got online, googled sketches of dogs, and did my best to replicate the images. I also drew a picture of a dog bowl with food and water as well as a set of dog bones that spelled out her name. It was so cute. No poster would be complete without glitter so for my finishing touch, I used glitter to write out "Run." I'm pretty messy/clumsy so my mom as you could tell, was not pleased with the glittery mess I made around the house!
Around the sides of my poster, I wrote a series of humorous running quotes. The pictures of the quotes weren't the best quality so I shall list them here instead-
Running is a mental sport, and we're all insane.
Our workouts are longer than our shorts! (This is sooo true!! Our shorts are super short!)
Cross country is one HILL of a sport.
Our shoes have more miles than your cars.
Pain is temporary, Pride is forever
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
The FASTER you run, the QUICKER your done.
Your feet hurt cause your kicking so much A** (I love this one!)
Sweat is Sexy.
The meet itself went pretty well. We didn't win it or anything, but we made an improvement from last year which is what maters! To qualify, we needed to come in the top 2 for our division. We got 6th so we didn't make it, but everyone ran so well and it was just an exciting, (and extremely cold) day! I couldn't have asked for a better team for my senior year. Everyone is so sweet and I love everyone on the team!
After coming home from the meet, I had to shower as fast as I can and rush to my friend's home to prepare for homecoming. I have gone to homecoming freshman and sophomore year and each of those years, I got ready for homecoming at the same friend's home. I went over her house this year for my last dance. I think it is crazy how we have remained friends since middle school and throughout high school. Even though we don't see each other that often at all, we still have so much to talk about when we see one another. Here are some pictures from homecoming-
|We are so strange!...|
For homecoming, I got ready with my friend and two other friends. One of my friend's (the one with blond hair) is actually an exchange student from Europe and this was going to be her first ever homecoming!! I'm so jealous of her because I want to go to Europe so badly. For my freshman year, I wore a poofy dress, my sophomore year, I wore a less fluffy, and finally my senior year, I chose to go for a tight bodycon dress! I got this dress over the summer and I have yet to wear it so I decided to wear it for homecoming! Why waste money on another dress I would only wear once? (plus our school isn't as fancy when it comes to dances. 1/2 of the people dress up nicely (usually the freshman/sophomore) while the other half dress like they are going clubbing. lol)
Overall, homecoming was a huge hit for me. It was awkward in the beginning, but once people started dancing, things got a lot better. I got more comfortable and it was just lots of fun. The exchange student loved homecoming and in fact, she was the one to push me all the way to the front to dance as well as pushing me into a guy. It was pretty awesome. Apparently, they don't dance like this in Europe so she was nervous at first though I know she does love dancing and music. I really wonder what Europe is like?? I need to study abroad when I am in college!
After homecoming was over at 11, we all decided to go out for a late night dinner since we didn't eat much beforehand. I wasn't all for a "late night dinner" because I really wanted to go home and just rest, but I'm glad my friends dragged me into it. After dancing for 3+ hours, I was not only tired, but a bit hungry. We went to a local restaurant that was open 24/7. I got a simple 1/2 meal and some melon. It was a lot of fun and a great way to end an amazing day!
|Notice how two of us are out of our heels and into flats/flip-flops hehe... those heels hurt!|
