So Graduations are currently taking place & I was reminded from a Friend last week that We Graduated High School 16 years ago! Wait what?!! How did that happen?! Kinda feels like a Blur but it also feels like yesterday I was at Cheerleading Practice, Studying for a test or getting ready for a School Dance. Seriously where does the time go?! So, on my Blog today I thought I’d make it a “Throwback Thursday” of my High School Days. Let me remind you… this was the years between 1998-2002 where Spice Girl Shoes were in, wearing those butterfly clips were cool, & taking pictures with those funky backgrounds at the mall was the thing to do. Yeah… these were my High School Years.
Freshman Year is always that awkward year. You are still trying to figure yourself out. Body is changing, which means pimples, braces & the only worry you had was who were you going to hang out with during Nutrition & Lunch Time. Ahhh…. those were the Good O’l Days. Seriously, not a worry in the world.
Being on the Cheer Squad was life for me. I enjoyed the Practices, Learning New Routines, the Friendships & obviously the Cheering! Is it lame to say that I still remember some dance routines & cheer chants?! No Seriously, the other day a song came on the radio and I was in the backseat busting my dance moves… I thought I was all that & a bag of chips but Joser thought I was a nut.
What about them School Dances? I could post a bunch of the Homecoming Pictures but I will post my Favorite Dance with my Favorite Guy… My Poppa. Don’t ask me what I was wearing because seriously I don’t know what I was thinking, but my Dad told me that I Looked Beautiful… so that’s all that matters.
So this picture is a Memorable Picture for me because I was a Junior & this was the day I got my Braces taken off. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Seriously I had my braces on… FOR-EV-ERRRRRRRR! If I wasn’t rockin’ my Cheer Uniform at School… you would find me in Windbreakers & a Polo… that was the School Uniform Life. Okay but how funky were my eyebrows?! Yikes!
I never understood when people would say “Enjoy High School, Because it goes by So Fast”. Now 16 years later… I know exactly what they mean. It’s kind of funny because I find myself telling other’s that now. Time does Fly when you are having fun. I was able to enjoy my High School Years because of my Parents. They put all 3 of us (my siblings) in Private School. I am Blessed to have Parents that worked hard & sacrificed for us to have the Best Education. On top of tuition, they dropped a good amount of money on books & for me to enjoy a what I loved to do… Cheerleading.
Our Mom & Dad’s are the Real MVP’s! Now, being a Parent myself, I want to do the same for my Daughter, give her the Best of Everything. There are 3 things I kept from High School. My Letterman’s Cheer Jacket, Cheer Uniforms & My Poppa surprised me with this the other day…
My Cheer Bag! Thank You Poppa for never throwing things away LOL. It’s kinda neat to keep in touch with friends from High School. Not necessarily seeing them everyday, but connecting with them through Social Media. We witness the Single Life, Married Life, Baby Life… so Thank You Facebook & Instagram!
High School went by fast just like our Parents said it would. It all Eventually Ends. Graduations get me all excited though… because that means one thing… Summer is Around the Corner!
