Y

“yelling” (i.e. cheerleading):  most people who’ve known me for 6 minutes or more find it hard to believe that I was a high school cheerleader.  i still can’t really figure out why it’s so hard to believe, except that i’m kind-of “jocky” and sarcastic and don’t wear alot of makeup.  not only was i a cheerleader for 4 years, i was captain for 2.  cheerleading was a huge part of my life and, as pathetic as it might seem to some, it was very important to me.  [i am not, however, one of those silly people who says it is a sport.]  i played other sports in junior high and during our short “off-season” (track, softball, tennis, volleyball) and i considered myself an athlete.  i never could do a split or get the guts up to do a standing back tuck, but i think i was pretty good.  our football team was incredible and went to state two years in a row, which i think definitely made it more fun.  anyway, it was definitely one of the most impacting, self-helping activities i’ve ever been a part of.  some highlights:  in 11th grade, my coach got slammed up against a chain link fence during a game and broke 2 ribs; various camps and competitions (we basically sat around and made fun of everyone for acting so retarded); all the parents made a rig for our signs out of PVC pipe so that they could literally be two stories high; we got to miss alot of class for stupid reasons!  (the picture below is my sister natalie and i in our rad uniforms…i kept it small for a reason.)
