Today was a fun day. I went with Sav up to the UVU Events Center to watch her sister Metria compete at the State Drill Team Competition. This is a big deal for a high school girl…as long as she’s on the drill team I guess. Having had two sisters in drill team growing up, I was used to going to these things to be supportive. But I’ve been out of high school for 5 1/2 years. So being at a drill team competition was kinda crazy. A blast from the past.
But more than anything, I realized how nice it is to be out of high school, out of my home town, and in the real world. Life really begins once you leave high school. And everything before that gets left behind. It’s nice.
By the way, Metria and her team were robbed. Like any typical high school drill team competition, the judges were biased and gave first place in each category to one team. Luckily they were able to snag 2nd.
