Week 3

Hey there! This was the third week of school, and it’s been really nice to begin to settle into a routine. Sometimes it takes a couple of weeks to get the school year going, but things are in full swing, and are feeling comfortable!

On Tuesday, I went to our school’s varsity volleyball game and joined the student section. This was a big game against a well-known program, but we pulled off the win in 4 games! Congratulations to our team, and especially our seniors who have been faithfully leading the team for 4 years. Hoping for a great season!

Thursday, I decided to help hype everybody up for the football game the next day and for seeing the drumline for the first time this year! I made it fun and wore drumline clothes from all 3 of my previous years (shorts, shirt, and later a hoodie). Opinions differed, but it looked pretty fuego if you ask me…

Then came Friday night! It was so great to be back with the band in the stands and back to a greater sense of normalcy! The theme for our student section was “white-out” and the seniors wore togas as part of a longstanding tradition of the student section. The seniors in the marching band wore togas after our halftime show and were free to join the student section in the front row! As well, the band seniors had our senior banner pictures taken, and they are hanging in the stands near where we sit! Below are a bunch of pictures from the game, and below is also my banner picture!

Saturday, I tried pumpkin spice coffee for the first time to see what the hype was about…and I brought a friend the drink too to try it together! Our impression: it does live up to the hype, it’s tangy and sweet with a good fall flavor! I’d give it 8/10 stars, I was pretty impressed.

As well, that same friend and I decided to put into action a creative idea we’ve had for a little while…we call it a “recommen-day” where you choose certain activities, foods, drinks movies, outfit colors, and music for the other person to do throughout the day, based on your own taste! Today was our day to do that, so we took the plunge. I tried an AWESOME breakfast meal: a toasted bagel with cream cheese and a cooked egg on it (a picture is below, it was that good). Later today, I’ll be making chocolate strawberries and watching Swiss Family Robinson upon her recommendations! It’s turning out to be a great day, and I would highly recommend this to anyone, especially as a good way to get to know someone better! It’s a pretty great day with lots of personality behind it and many good times comin’. Shoutout to you, Miss Haynes (:

Praying for continued open doors this year, for grace and peace in this marching band season, and to keep being a light to those around me! It’s gonna be a good year (:
