From One Gym to the Next

From One Gym to the Next

   Standing among several older gymnasts with an 8th place ribbon in hand, I felt on top of the world. I was only 11 at the time and had just gained a spot on my local gymnastics team after months of hard work and dedication. This had involved floor work, pummeling, rings, beams and my favorite, the...

   If anybody knows me, or has heard of me, the number one thing they know about me is that I play softball. It is a pretty prominent aspect of my life. Winter practices and workouts have just started for my competitive team so my main focus has swayed from Christmas lists to softball practices. T...

   How? How did the Chiefs lose to one of the worst teams in the NFL? They were one of the best teams for a while but then they started a horrendous losing streak. They came back but then lost again. It was more of a let down then the Royals season this year.    Tom Brady, one of the best quart...

   If you’ve never listened to a Ted Talk or read a book by researcher Brené Brown, you’re seriously missing out. My favorite Ted Talk by Brené Brown is called “The Power of Vulnerability.” In this talk, she opens up about her experience of what she refrains from calling a “breakdown,” but...

    Every year around Christmas time, my sister and I go through our family photo albums. We have holiday pictures from every stage of our life, with Colby and I smiling side by side draped in strands of Christmas lights or have drinking hot chocolate in matching coats at Silver Dollar City. There is...

   First off, everyone disregard my last column. That was written before the Chiefs actually started to lose every single game they played.    They went from number one in the power rankings to number 21 in the span of seven weeks. And for me, it’s not fully quarterback Alex Smith’s fault. It...

December 20, 2017

   ‘Tis the season for the “What do you want for Christmas?” “Hey send me your Christmas List!” and “Have you been pinning things you want onto your Pinterest board?” comments from my closest friends and family. This is a nerve-wracking time of the year for me. Although the season is holly an...

I've always thought myself a rather confident person, aware of my own value. That was until I applied to be a counselor at a summer camp. I had previously been a camper here before my sophomore year. It was called Camp Jump Start or CJS and the main focus was to help kids struggling with body image....

November 29, 2017

   November is the liability month. We go from spooky to jolly and forget to consider being thankful. October 1st: everybody is suddenly obsessed with any and everything pumpkin. Couples are scrambling to come up with the best matching Halloween costumes. The boots and sweaters are broken out. Novembe...

   There is nothing better than getting together with your estranged family, accidentally finding your single aunt crying in the bathroom about her last boyfriend and then taking a bite out of the world’s driest piece of turkey. Oh sorry, I meant nothing worse could happen. Everybody loves a good...
