Shalom, Seniors.

The banquet at the end of the year means that softball season is almost over, finals are around the corner, and that your time with your seniors is almost up. I can’t speak for every team, but I can speak for mine in saying that this has been the greatest senior class yet.

Not only are thIMG_2350.jpgey taking care of business on the field, with five conference sweeps and an early birth to the conference tournament, off the field they’re doing their job as well. Our senior class has taught me so much about what it takes to be a good teammate and a good student.

If I’m ever in need of inspiration I know I can always count on them. I’ve cried on many of their shoulders and will definitely miss them when they leave. I hope that when my senior year rolls around I, too, will have underclassmen writing about how much they’ll miss their senior class.

Thank you, Class of 2016.

 

P.S. These two bring the group average down.The other five seniors are pretty I promise.

“Mom I’m just a burnt chicken nugget with a broken fin like nemo.” This is how I ended a conversation with my mom the other day. I like myself (most days) I promise. The end of the school year means stress, stress, and more stress.

I’ve found that I take my bad days out on myself. That might sound weird, but whether it’s how I talk about myself to my mom or believing someone else’s negative comments about me, it’s me who takes the L.

Despite all of this, I am so grateful to have a place where I don’t have to worry about anything, it’s our softball field. Even though I can’t play, this field and the girls on it bring me so much happiness.

After spending all day cooped up in a classroom it’s nice to be able to come to the field and forget about it all. It also helps that I have the best teammates around, many of which I look up to. Everybody deserves to have a special place that makes them feel better, this diamond filled with dirt just happens to be mine.

 

 

P.S. please don’t tell them I said that, their heads will get too big and I’ll have to deny it.
