Well my Sunday didn't go as planned... I ended up spending all afternoon in the hospital. I landed on my ankle wrong coming out of a stunt. When I landed I heard a snap and felt instant pain. This is why I think people should think cheerleading is a real sport. We are real athletes, it takes more to throw a person than it does to throw a ball. Cheerleading requires every team member's full attention, because instead of missing a block or a score we could miss a person. Cheerleading is more dangerous than football and doesn't get the respect it truly deserves. I say people should look at cheerleading the way I do, it is a sport.

What is a true friend? A true friend doesn't judge you, a true friend never leaves you. She/ He is the one person you feel most comfortable with. The one person you can tell anything and not worry about them telling other people. True friends are the people that no matter how far away from each other you are you still seem like you're next door neighbors. They are the people who tell it like it is ( but in a nice manor). The ones who always have your back and will defend you if they hear people talking shit. Friends in their truest form are like family, they are the people that you can't live without. They are the ones who make your life wonderful and you know your life would be much different without. They are always there with a laugh when you want to cry, or with a shoulder to cry on. If you need them they will be there at the drop of a hat, no matter where they are or what they are doing. They show up with Ben and Jerry's and chick flicks when you've just had your heart ripped out. They fly across the country so be there on your wedding day. They are the people who can never let you down. They forgive your mistakes, they help you move on, they help you stay strong. True friends are like bras; they are always there for support and close to your heart. Your family, your life line, your strength, and your joy, that's what a true friend is to me.

I have discovered that it is much easier to complete my homework while doing my laundry than sitting down at my desk trying to complete my work. I get more done in an hour and a half while doing laundry than I do in three hours in my room. It might be because there are less distractions; nobody yelling the halls or turning their music up to loud. I have always found laundry relaxing, well at least the folding part. I think I find it so much easier to do my homework in the laundry room because I literally have nothing better to do with that time while my laundry is going.
Education is highly valued in our society, we tend to put people with a higher education on a pedestal. I mean why not? They know more because they've been schooled longer. In my opinion learning doesn't happen in the classroom, it happens through real world experiences. Although, you can't get a job from what you've learned through your own mistake, so we go to school, some go for their love of learning, others go to get an education for a good job, or even because it seems socially unacceptable to not attend a college. I happen to be one of the people that come to a college to get a good job, well my dream job. I didn't come to Wartburg for psychology program, I came because of the homely feel. I love that everyone is friendly and the professor care about their students. I came to Wartburg because I could see myself here. I chose to go to a college because I know I need a college education if I ever want to achieve my dreams of working for the FBI and also because the thought of not going to college never crossed my mind. So yes I think we learn more from ourselves than from teachers, but I also understand that in order to obtain my goals I needed to attend a college to further my education.
