Dallas Volleyball Tournament

This weekend I am going to Dallas for a volleyball tournament and I am so excited!!! I love playing volleyball and I am really hoping to win. But I really don’t care if we lose I just want to have fun.

On Friday, we are leaving to go to the Sheraton (I think that is how you spell it) hotel and we are staying there for 3 nights. The games start on Saturday and I am really excited. I’m going to be missing Monday and I’m pretty happy about that. I think that we have the skills to win and that we can beat some really good teams.

I’m super excited to go and I am really looking forward to having a lot of fun with my friends. Some other teams are going and some of the people on those teams are my friends and I am hoping that we can play against them.

Last Game!!!

Today is our last game of the basketball season against Hudson Bend, and I am so excited and kinda sad. Sad because it’s our last game. Since basketball season is ending, track is starting next week, and I am really excited for that. I hope we win this game and finish our season on a good note — and we have a party tomorrow :)!!!!!!

I am really excited because track!!! I was thinking of doing either the 100 or 200 meter dash (which would be hard because so many people would be doing it) the 100 meter hurdles, the long jump, and maybe the 400 by 100 relay (if they have that in middle school).  The thing is, that all the jumps and hurdles are after school and I’m not sure if I can go. I think I can, but I don’t know. I’m also excited for track because I get to do it with more friends than the other sports. I had friends in the other sports, but I get to do track with more friends.

Another reason I  am excited (I’m so excited this month) is that I have a lot of volleyball tournaments, which is really exciting. I am excited because the first we went to was last Saturday and it was SO MUCH FUN!!!

All in all, I am so excited this month, and after this month spring break will come up!!!!!!

Dance Recital

I have a dance recital coming up. I do Bharatanatyam, a style of Indian classical dance, I dance at DIVYATHRAYAM school of dance.The recital is on Sunday, November 2, 2014, and I am doing 4 items(dances). I know that doesn’t sound like much it is a lot in this style of dance.

The thing about preforming Bharatanatyam is the makeup, it is ANNOYING! There is literally like 3 pounds of makeup on your face(like 1 pound of that is foundation) it is the most annoying thing. 2nd place goes to the jewelry(that’s right, we where jewelry while dancing) and hair. The jewelry is like 5 pounds (that’s 8 pounds of stuff now) and it’s all pulling back on your head (so your head feels like it will fall off). The hair is either a bun or a braid(usually, it may change), the bun is just very uncomfortable, but the braid is annoying because you have to add fake hair to your regular hair(if you don’t have hair that long already) so you feel the weight of your hair double and that is pulling on your head another 1 pound(9 pounds). The least annoying thing is the costume, it’s the biggest thing but it is the least annoying. It just depends on what you get it stitched out of, but the usual things that go wrong is that it is getting small(or big), it is itchy ect.

But all in all I love dance and preforming is really a small part of it, my favorite thing is learning about new stories and getting to share them out to other people, I also feel very in touch with my heritage when I am dancing.

WRMS Volleyball

I love volleyball, it is so fun. We’ve played 2 games so far, the first against Hudson Bend (We won!!!) and one against Dripping Springs (Sadly, we lost), our next game is against Lake Travis (We have to win!!!) and I am really excited.

The Hudson Bend game was kind of easy because they had a bad day and couldn’t return the ball off the serve. We won that game thanks to Ananya because she got 12 serves over in a row!!!

The Dripping Springs game was really hard we were all kind of tensed up after seeing the A-team lose but we went anyway. Also there were Dripping Springs guys there and they were being like cheerleaders and doing chants, they also did this annoying thing where when we were serving they would all yell “Yea!” at the sometime to throw the servers off (it was really annoying).

The Lake Travis game is tomorrow in the back gym (8th grade is the front gym)and my match is a bit later then the other team’s match. so I have to be there for twice as much time.
