when i did club my favorite event was beam. i learned skills the quickest on beam and was fearless. my first day of level 5 i started working double back handsprings on high beam because i picked up on skills so quickly on beam.
now in high school, my favorite event is floor. i love how i can dance and express myself on floor. i love to perform and show off. i create my own routine every year and i just LOVE it. definitely my favorite.

I LOVED CONDITIONING. I still do. I love love love working out. When I was on club team it definitely was not my favorite thing to do but i still had a love for it. I enjoyed kowing i was going to get stronger and it would help me get better. Now, in high school gymnastics, i LOVE conditioning and the weight training. To me, there is no better part of my practice.
(skipping ahead a few days because a) i already did this on facebook. b) i have a lot i need to get off my chest right now)
What’s cookin’, good lookin’?
God how many times did a conversation start like that? Where did everything go wrong? Back and forth since like 6th grade. This past year has really been insane though. Ever since last october, things have just been constant ups and downs. Constant really good memories and then constant fighting. I gave up. I had to. I was sick and tired of the fighting, the bitching, the lack of trust, the jealousy. It was all for nothing. I was on the phone the other night with MB and she was actually talking about Henry but you came into the conversation. She made a really good point saying she didnt want things with henry to end up like things with you. She thinks everything went wrong because we waited and waited and waited. We were sick of each other and ready to break up before the relationship even started. She made a point that if maybe things happened a long time ago, or if it wasnt back and forth for so long, we wouldnt have burnt out and it would all be different.
When I called it quits and told you i was done with all the bullshit, I dont think you believed me. I am still a little frustrated with you because during that final fight, you went on to say how we would never be able to work through all our shit…all the crap that has been piling up for years now. I agreed and naturally i walked away. But as soon as I said i was done….I wanted to be just friends or not even friends anymore, you fought. You didn’t like that answer. and yet later when i mentioned that i didn’t know what i wanted between us anymore (i do now. friends if you are willing. but lately that doesn’t seem like an option to you) and i said that it was pretty clear what you wanted (to me it seemed like just a hook up. i definitely was not going to do that) you responded saying that (and this is total paraphrasing) i had no idea what you wanted. And to this day, i still dont know the answer. you wont tell me. not that we have talked recently.
I do miss you, and I do care for you. Just as friends though. I hope we can be friends this year. MB keeps telling me i need to work on getting onto good terms with you. I want senior year to be fun, drama free and that can only happen if you can open up, tell your side of the story and be a friend to me like you were for so many years in the past. I’ve known you since 6th grade and i cannot imagine losing such a great friend after six years.
Lastly, I am so sorry for putting you through everything. But at the same time I am so grateful for you sticking with me. Although there was always a little bit more to the situation, you have always been such a great friend. Hopefully this letter will help you understand and hopefully we can move on from this. Hopefully you will consider stopping the glares whenever i talk or hug HH. He’s a great guy and i dont want to ruin your friendship with him or I.
I hope this helps clear things up. I hope one day [soon] you will talk to me again and we can be friends. and lastly i hope that one day you will open up and share your side of the story. I would love to hear it.
this letter is the longest because you mean that much to me,
My favorite gymnast has always been and will always be Nastia. I have followed her since she was a junior elite and at her first nationals. I have always been a huge fan of her flexibility, her grace and how flawless she is. Lets not lie, I almost cried when she won gold in the 2008 olympics.
of course i competed!! i got to training level 7 at my gym when i quit. I moved to high school gymnastics which competes at a level 8 skill level. depending on the event, i am anywhere from a level 7-9.
