My best friend wanted to be a cheerleader, and I didn’t. I thought It was dumb and it wasn’t a real sport, but she talked me into doing it anyways. She couldn’t get her physical in time so I ended up trying out on my own. I barely tried thinking I’d get cut. I made the team, and I was somewhat happy about it, so I stayed. I went into the practices, and found all the popular chicks had also tried out. I then began to actually make friends with them. We were a small squad, but we all ended up loving cheer and became friends. Some not so much as others but we all got along and helped each other with what we had to do. It was something new, and I loved it. I also began to do theatre at the same time. It took up almost all my time, but I didn’t care it made school worth it. I made so many friends, and had so much fun. It kept me away from trouble that I could’ve gotten into if I wasn’t. I learned then that it’s not just the sport but those people associated with it that made extra-curricular activities a blast. After that I fell in love with school, mainly after school.
