Today was a rough day.

  • First off, my alarm was going off this morning (never a good thing anyways) and sub-conciously I began to think to myself A: “Why is my alarm going off on the weekend?” and B: “Why is my alarm going off in the middle of the night?”

It took me a solid 5 minutes of my alarm going off to realize that it was A: Not the weekend, B: It was time to wake up, and C: I seriously had to get up.

Thus ending in me shutting off my alarm, and then falling back asleep for another 30 minutes. Running late: always a great start to the day.

Story of my life.

  • Second of all, weights kicked my butt. I was pumped my max on both squat and clean increased significantly, but after accomplishing both of those things with pride, I became incredibly exhausted. The rest of the workout seemed never ending!
  • Next, I could not stay motivated throughout the day to do ANYTHING. I kept having to move around because I struggled with concentration. Must be a Monday thing. Maybe I need to break up with Mondays as well!
  • And lastly, I had to say goodbye to some of my best friends. Tonight was our cheerleading banquet, so never will I be in the same room with all of those girls altogether ever again. I’ve been a Varsity Cheerleader for four years and never have I cried that much at a banquet. I just feel as if I broke up with my family.

And so, I’m sorry if you aren’t looking forward to this, but I am dedicating the rest of this post to my cheer family.

Always the #1 fans at every single game all year.

And Coach McKenzie: You are my role model and a brilliant light when times were dark. You are an inspiration and I will miss being your copilot year after year and all of our long talks of suburban rides when everyone else was crashed out. I love you!

And Coach McKenzie: You are my role model and are always a brilliant light when times are dark. You are an inspiration and I will miss being your copilot year after year. I will especially miss all of our long talks on suburban rides when everyone else was crashed out. I love you more than you will ever come to know.

If anyone is still reading this, I just want to push you to go out and find people that inspire you to be the best you can possibly be. Surround yourself with positive people and the result can only be positive.

Love with no boundaries like these ladies (and one gent) taught me, and you will be loved in return.

Run on.
