JV Squad Cheerleader.
I never had any aspirations of being a cheerleader when I was a little girl.
But at the end of my freshman year, there were only three girls who were going to try out for the JV squad, and somehow, my best friend and I got talked into trying out.
We made the squad.
And then we tried out for Varsity - and made it both our Junior and Senior years.
I loved being a cheerleader.
...thoughts I have when I see this picture:
- I was so skinny.
- (I thought I was fat.)
- This was the best uniform we ever had... we called them the Bumblebee sweaters.
- That's really a lot of hair.
- I really was just as young and innocent as I looked.
- Wasn't I clever, with my one shoelace purple and the other one gold?
