To start off with, this new website is looking really awesome!! It seems that I have absolutely no excuses this year for not blogging. I have a two week spring break which will include JN’s and was astounded to hear today that I have absolutely no homework assigned. This leaves me with no other choice than to catch up on my reading and BLOG, daily.
For me at least, this is the time of year that I start to feel placid. The training part of the year is over, now it’s time to perform. My body is itching to race after tapering for the past week. I have to keep telling myself to calm the heck down! Going into my fourth year at JN’s, I realize that the anticipation factor will never go away.
It seems like it was only yesterday that we were packing up for Minneapolis. To my surprise, it’s already a new year and a new set of faces. For many, this will be their first year at JN’s. I can already tell that everyone is putting on a very serious face going into this trip; they realize that this is a big step up. As I’ve always said, nothing can prepare you for JN’s like going to JN’s. Thus, I’m excited for a new group of teenagers to go and experience what I felt in my first year at JN’s.
With that, it seems that I must begin my absolute least favorite part of the trip, packing. Can my bag pack itself?? We depart at 7 a.m. tomorrow for the always scenic drive through Nevada. Once there, we will head straight to the opening ceremonies. I am definitely looking forward to what this one will bring as each opening ceremony has had a very unique touch. Here we come Soldier Hollow!!! Far West Far Best!
