The Closet

I figure it's about time for me to come out of the closet.

NO not the sexuality closet! Two other closets: the political closet and.... the cheerleading closet.

So, yes. I'm a republican. Now, NO MORE POLITICS ON THIS BLOG.

.... And.... I'm a cheerleader. They finally convinced me. I joined the squad mainly because it gets me a gym credit so I don't have to take gym class. I normally play soccer, but It's at the same time as my school's musical, and it's too stressful to do both. I'm finding I somewhat like cheerleading, though.


Honestly, it's not cheerleading that I hate, it's the stereotype of cheerleaders that I hate. "Girls, in short skirts, sitting on the sidelines telling boys to do their best. Chosen for their beauty." And it's not a REAL sport.

I do not concur. That statement is completely false, but I guess cheerleaders deserve it. A lot of girls don't take it seriously, but it really is athletic, with the dancing and all. My squad does between 20 and 40 push ups (man push ups) and between 90 and 150 crunches.


And besides, cheerleaders can spell and count to 8!

Cool that you are on the cheerleading squad - without falling into the stereotype! also, YAY for being a republican? - I dunno - I don't really know what that means (I don't really follow American politics) - Anyway, that's all I have to say today:)
