The Phantom’s Lair

Dark, for the only light is the flickering of a candle. Lonely, for the Phantom is alone deep down in his lair.

The whole world down there is dark. I can barley see my hand in front of me. The only thing that is visible is the flickering candle in the corner by the piano. It seems as if the light can go out with a single light blow, making me feel unsafe. I feel as if the walls are closing in on me, but at the same time it feels like a big, empty, lonely space.

As I look around it looks as if I’m the only one here, but I know I’m not. I can feel the presence of the Phantom, hovering over me. I can feel his warm breath on my neck sending chills running up and down my spine.

I spin around.

Standing right there behind me is the Phantom. Wearing a long cloak and a white mask. He is holding the candle inches away from his perused lips. He lets out a light blow.

The whole room goes dark.

Expository- Cheer

Cheer competitions are one of my favorites things. Bright lights, loud music, enthusiastic crowd- all the things that make a cheer competition what it is.

The lights at a cheer competition make it all the more scary. They are so bright that you can only see the floor you are on and not anyone in the audience. The spotlight is on you and your team and it can be intimidating but it’s super fun at the same time! The bright lights aren’t the only thing though! You have to have glaring music to even call it a cheer competition!

The music is so loud it makes your ears ring. They have to make it loud enough for the audience to hear which makes it SOOO loud for you. You think that your ears may fall of cause of how loud it is but the always stay on! I haven’t lost an ear yet!! But the thing that gets me the most pumped is the screaming audience.

At cheer competitions the audience screams so loud that I know all of their throats are sore after! It really encourages you to do even better and push through the routine.

These are all the things that make a cheer competition what it is! If it weren’t for the bright lights, loud music and enthusiastic crowd I wouldn’t even call it a cheer competition.

Summertime is the Best

Light hair, dark skin, warm sun, cool water- these are all things that make summertime the best time.

I think I can speak for almost every teen that summer is everyone’s favorite, especially cause of the beaches. The cold water, warm sun, soft sand- everything that makes the beach one of my favorite places. Getting a tan makes it even better! I doubt that anyone could say they didn’t enjoy warm sun and cool water.

If there’s anything better than a tan it’s getting to sleep in. The freedom of getting to go to sleep whenever you want to cause you don’t have to get up early the next day is amazing. The feeling of waking up without an alarm clock screaming at you is even better. Waking up at 10:30am on a warm summers day is one of the best things in the world.

These are all the things that make summertime amazing. I can’t wait for dark skin and light hair!

Atlanta, Georgia

Not this weekend but the next I’m going to Atlanta for a cheer competition. I’m really nervous for my cheer competition! I hope that my team does really well especially because we have a lot of new stunts. We are competing against four other teams and my coaches said that if we hit a zero deduction routine we will probably win because our raw score is so high. I know that all of this is probably a different language to y’all because cheer talk is almost gibberish. I’m not just scared about competing, but I’m also scared of Atlanta!

I heard that Atlanta is really sketchy and scary! At first when I heard we were going to Atlanta I was super excited cause I thought it was like Atlantis but then shortly after I figured out they are pretty much opposites. My mom looked really concerned that I was overjoyed about going to Atlanta.

I’m still very excited about going to hang out with my friends and I bet it’s not as bad as my mom plays it off as!I hope that my team does super well and that we hit 0!
