Dear Journal,

I'm in Columbus right now, sitting in my hotel. I cant sleep at all because I'm so nervous. Tomorrow morning I'll be getting ready to go to the most important competition, State Championships. I know that the team is ready, we've been practicing this dance for five months straight, three hours a day, and three days a week. We can do this dance in our sleep. But were not the only team that's been practicing hard. All the other teams have too, and this year they're all really good. I do have faith in my team. We've been through so much this year. Every curve ball that could be thrown at us, has been. It's definitely been a rough year for us. But we've pulled through and worked unbelievably hard. You know, I have regrets about being on the Dance Team. So many times at practice I was just want to walk out. I complain about how my coach works us to hard. But everything is worth it now. Being in the position that I'm in now, feels so good. I know I'm really nervous but its a good nervous. It feels awesome. The chills I get before going out on the floor, gets my adrenaline rushing like crazy. I always think about quitting the team, but in all honesty I wouldn't give dance up for anything. Its my life. To think about it, I'm not really nervous anymore. I know were going to rock it tomorrow. I have no doubt about that.
