Haha, so it's been ages since I've updated. I'll try to do a recap, starting from the day I broke the school record...the setting is Bridgewater College, on a cool sunny day.

I've got shin splints -- yuck! I counter this by taking 1200mg of ibuprofen. My liver is going to hate me one day. Luckily, though, this results in a rather pain-free meet. I do the long jump. I hate the long jump. Wait around for the 4x100/my flight in the triple. I sprint across the entire field to go find the 4x800 relay card. Run the 4x100, we do alright. There's a crazy head wind.

I'm ranked 2nd in the triple jump. I'm on my last jump, but I don't quite remember what place i was at this point. My legs are dying from having already jumped 5 times (not including run throughs and what not) and running the 4x100. So I jump. I hit the board gawd awful but some how I manage to hit 36' 1". New school record!! Woo~ I run around screaming, jumping around, because I've just vaulted myself to first place as well. Some Sherando track alums hit me up with a congratulations and I'm set for the rest of the day. Lauren and I are both champions, and we wait around for them to announce the results so we can pick up our champions athletic bags. Good day :)

Go on to the district meet: district champion with 35' 8.5". Not bad. I'm just happy I didn't scratch out  (like I did at ABI).

Fast forward to the Region II meet this past wednesday. First things first, 4x100 was terrible. Ayana and I had a disgusting hand off. I nearly had to stop so we could get it in the zone. I warm up for the triple way ahead of time because they don't know how to run a pit. When it finally comes around, I'm nervous as hell. I'm ranked first, but number 2 just had a really good day in the long jump. First jump: scratch. Dammit. Second jump: 34' something lame. Dammit. Third jump: scratch. FUCK! I start freaking out because, even though I've made the finals, I'm scared to death I'll scratch out.

Finals. I'm ranked...not well going into the finals. I don't recall my first jump, but the second one is good for a momentary stay at first. The girl who was originally ranked second jumps right before me and steals it away with 35' 8". "I know she didn't." I've got one shot left to let everyone know I've got what it takes. I run as hard as I can towards that board...and land 36' .25" into the sand. Oh, the joy! Sean, Tamara, and Mr. Haack are there to cheer me on and all feels good. It's a good day :)

The Northern Virginia Daily interviewed me. I'm in the sports section of the May 21st paper. :) yaaaay!!! I bought four copies.

Oh, and that prom thing happened, too. :P We got a limo and it was beast.

NOT SO HAWT

This is my super quick "I don't feel like doing this" recap of the meet yesterday.

First off, I wake up and get ready real quick like, and am running a little late. I get on the computer real quick and notice Josh has IM'd me. So I'm all "WTF, why aren't you at school?" and apparently, we have a 2 hour delay for no good reason at all. I chill out for a bit, munch on a poptart, and then head over to Josh's house for a good hour before going to school.

Go to business. Stupid. Leave class around 10:30. Find out we're not leaving until 11:15 because of the delay. Me and my buds make an illegal run to subway, I go home to grab a pillow and blankets for the awesome 2.5hr drive to Fork Union Military Academy. Get back to school, I go find Josh in class, steal his headphones and say goodbye.

Bus is late. Sit in Lauren's car and dance like an idiot until bus arrives. We have to share a bus with James Wood, the other local high school. They're a bunch of idiots and I want to kill them. They've got cool coaches, though. Listen to music for majority of ride. Other coaches admire my jumping ability (District Champion, wooooo!!). Get to track, head inside.

I've got a good long while until the girls long jump starts. I jump, everything feels good -- good speed, and crazy ridiculous height. Unfortunately, my jumps still suck. Four jumps later I'm pissed. I'm pissed at coach because he doesn't know what he's doing so he can't tell me what the fuck I'm doing wrong. Barely make it into the top 6 -- going to States anyways. Hooray!

Sleep. Wake up, go to bathroom, and see other girls warming up for the triple. Warm up, get steps. I'm out to redeem myself. I'm ranked second, I'm going for first. First jump, not too bad, not particularly good. Second jump better. Third, not quite as good as second, but still not good. Lauren (other Lauren, team mate) is beating me by only a little. Fourth and last jump -- I'm ready. Ready to make history, ready to bust some shit out.

Fuck up last jump. Scratch. Foul. It's all over. Without even stopping I turn, grab my stuff and walk back to my team. Scream, cry, yell. Walk around to try and calm down. Kick trash can. Walk back to pit to see where I placed. Coach walks over, looks, turns and says "First and second."

OMFG!! Scream, walk away livid. Walk over to team, yell "FUCK!" really loudly, sit down and start crying. I'm pissed off like you wouldn't believe. I was a fucking inch from the REGION TITLE. I'm pissed because I know I'm fucking better than her. I'm pissed because that last jump would have been it. I'm pissed because she gets the title that was MINE. Inconsolable for remainder of trip home.

Colby tries to make me feel better, I wish he would leave me alone. He still "loves" me. It's been four years, dude, get the fuck over it. Stop at Sheetz -- get massive frozen mocha with extra everything. Fall asleep for remainder of bus ride. Beautiful sleep.

Go to Josh's house and relax, bitch, moan, and complain. He makes me feel better. He's cute when he's tired. :]

Come home, go to bed. Still angry in the morning. Go to school, make amends with Lauren for being such a douche bag about her beating me. We're a good team. The one-two punch. Who's the one and who's the two depends on what day it is. We're a force to be reckoned with. If I break the record, she'll break it next year. She's a good athlete and I'm glad she's on my team.

States is next Saturday. I'm out for vengeance. I'm out to redeem myself. I'm out to show everyone who I am, and who they should be looking for during outdoor. It's mine.

I feel like for once in my life I actually have a life that's interesting. I feel like I could sit someone down and tell them about my life and have it be interesting. I feel alive.

But it still sucks. I feel like I'm lost but I feel like I've found myself at the same time.

Tomorrow would have been 1 year and 11 months.


Hahaha. Fuck -_-;

I just fuckingggg faileddddd my Calc QA. Like, I didn't answer almost half the test. I was doing soooooo well until I got to this one part where it says "Differentiate the blah blah blah" I was all like 'Oh, differentiability means able to find a slope: find the slope, find the derivative.' which was apparently right. Only for some reason my brain was fucking retarded and I couldn't find the derivative so I thought that was wrong and ran out of time.

We asked Mrs. Berry what that meant and she said it means to find the derivative. "Oh, can I have mine back?" "No."

WTF?! If it were anyone else she would've given it back. Mrs. Berry is a nice lady but for some reason I don't think she likes me. None of my math teachers have ever liked me. They must be able to sense my un-abilities of math. FUCK.

;_; I miss him lots

Actually, I miss everybody that isn't here and is off at college. Jono and I are talking again, and I really miss him, too :(

I'm glad Dr. Saylor still likes Katie and I. I would die if she didn't x_x

It's also a good thing her QA is WAY easier than I thought it would be.

...But people who are pro-life can't drive worth a shit. Everyone I see on the road that's being a fucking idiot has a pro-life sticker.

Just wanted to express that, and see if anyone else has noticed the same?
