Sorry this update is coming so late, but this past weekend was so busy and emotional that I thought it best to wait until today to update. This year I have had to say goodbye to many things in my life. Earlier this year I said goodbye to the cheerleading team. It was a team that I spent 4 years of my life being a part of. I watched the team grow over the years and I could not have wished for a better way of spending my falls: hanging out with my best friends every day after school, learning new and interesting stunts, and screaming at the top of my lungs on Friday night football games.
This weekend I said goodbye to Robotics. Robotics has been a part of my life for 4 years and I have been through everything with this team. I spent my first year on the team struggling to get the predominately male team to respect me and see me as an equal. Fast forward to this year and I’m the captain of the team and a member of the drive team. The bittersweet feeling I have is insane. I have learned so many valuable lessons by being on the team and I will hold the experiences close to my heart.
I have created a playlist on 8tracks called Nostalgia. Music helps me get though situations in my life and saying goodbye to these important activities was very bittersweet. I am happy and excited for the future, but I am also emotional about that part of my life coming to an end.
