Days without practice

Today was one of those days where as soon as my classes were done, my responsibilities to the outside world ended. There was no practice looming over my head, meaning I had to stick to a strict schedule in order to maximize the amount of time I had in the day. No, not today. Today, I went to class, did my rehab, then went to study hall. I started the day with 0 hours and finished with 4 hours and 29 minutes (which always makes me crazy, like I want to re-swipe in and then swipe out again to make it 30 minutes haha)

I spent that whole time working intensely on my study guide. I didn’t worry about catching the bus back in time because I didn’t pack cheer clothes so I can’t just stay on campus, I just worked in study hall until my eyes felt like they were crossed. That’s when I knew it was time to go home. I still came back and continued studying, but those 40 minutes it took to get home did wonders for my attention span.

I also, for the first time in my 3 years since being here, attended the Athlete Talent Show! What a hoot! We had a couple of our teammates performing and they all were hands down the best and I promise I’m not biased, well at least entirely. All of our performers finished in the top 2 of the talent section. Cheerleaders are clearly jacks of all trades 😉 Needless to say, some of the other athletes should be thankful for their physical talents and leave their other “careers” behind. Although I do give everyone props who performed tonight because I wouldn’t have the nerve to do it.

Once back home, it was time for some relaxation and Homeland! Anyone seen it? Apparently it is filmed in Charlotte, which is really amazing and I’m hoping that the next time I am home, Daddy can take me to go see one of the sets (hint hint) It is a really intense show, but I am loving every minute of it. Huge thanks to Meredith’s family for getting me hooked 🙂 If it was up to me I would probably already be through the 2 seasons because I would neglect all other responsibilities, stay in bed and watch episode after episode until I was done. Thankfully, that isn’t the case and I’m being paced so I’m not shirking any of my duties.

Random side note- ever notice how everything seems to run out at exactly the same time? I am currently on the verge of being out of toilet paper, conditioner, shaving cream, body wash, milk, bread, laundry detergent, mascara, and food in general. When I’m not on campus and can eat a meal there with my dining dollars, I eat bread with butter. Ahhh the life of a poor college student haha

Tomorrow is a busy day because I don’t finish class until 5:30/6:30 depending on how long lab lasts, and then I have practice from 6-8. Then it is right back to studying for my last test until spring break.

I think I can. I think I can.

22 days until my 21st birthday….eeeekkkk!!
