Homecoming is over and it was so much fun! I really enjoyed my first and last homecoming and it was just memorable.
Let me start from the beginning. For those who don't know what homecoming is: Homecoming week starts from Monday to Tuesday and it's all about the football game on Friday. Each day we dress up differently and have a "theme" how we are aloud/should dress up. And everynight there are activities at school you could join. Monday was PJ Day, which means that we can wear our Pyjamas- obviously- to school and take blankets with us to school. That was pretty fun... At 5:30pm they offered Sign Painting in the Cafeteria. But unfortunately I wasn't there, because I got Cross Country practice and right after that Powder Puff Practice. Powder Puff was on the next day and in that "sport" girls play flag football and compete against the Frehmen (9th grade) and the Seniors (11th grade). As a sophomore I was in a team with the sophomores (10th grade) and the Juniors. For the Powder Puff Game girls ask the football players for their jerseys. So one week before Homecoming week started, I asked a boy who's in my semenary class and Sunday church and got the jersey.
So on Tuesday was Mathlete vs. Athlete Day. On that day we could wear the football players jersey or something what makes you look like a nerd. I was an athlete. At 6:30pm Powder Puff started and we were pretty prepared and so pumped up for the game. The boys were the coaches and we had a men squad, who did cheerleading. It was so much fun! The game was intense and we got a touchdown, but lost 12-18 at the end, which makes me so mad. We were so good... and lost anyways. I was offense, which means that I block everyone who comes in my way. The other team played rough, but not rough enough to beat me. I was awesome.
On Wednesday we had Squad Day and I dressed up with the Cross country team and we made up to wear our shirts for that day. But when I came to school nobody wore the same shirt as me. So that was kinda a fail. Only two boys of the team wore the same shirt as me, but anyways... At 7pm we had a movie night at school on the football field and everybody brought their blankets and pillows with. Some brought couches with them haha. We watched Pirates of the Carribean 1 and from time to time it got colder and colder till we were all freezing.
On Thursday was USA Day. We dressed up in America's flag colors and carried our US pride with us. In the evening after school we had a parade. The past few days the students built floats for each grade. So we had a freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior float, which also had themes. The sophomore floats theme was India. And the grade who got the best float wins. The whole valley was there to watch the parade. On the parade the Cross Country (including me), soccer, volleyball team etc. was marching and we threw candy and stuff. After the parade there was an Assembly. I don't know if I told you what an Assembly is, but at my school they do Assembly's on special events for example there was one for the first week of school, start of hoco week etc. It's kinda like a meeting where the whole school comes together and people announce special events that are coming up this week, teachers get called out to play games like "imitate the teacher" or once they played Russian egg roulette. One time siblings got called out to play the sibling challenge etc. Everything you can imagine... So at the Assembly on Thursday the king and queen, princesses were presented and they all looked so pretty! One week before Homecoming week started, every student at school was supposed to vote for their princesses, kings and queens. We got a list with all the girls we can vote for and even I was on it. I was pretty surprised! Haha. Anyways... the princesses who had the most votes wore fancy dresses at the Assembly and it was just sweet. They got their crowns on, capes and yup... At the Assembly the cheerleader and dance team were performing, athlete of the season were announced and the juniors float got first and we got second.
On Friday was Extreme Blue and Gold Day. These are the colors of our school, which means that we can wear our Pirate HS Shirts to school. At 5:30 Marina and I were at school again even though the football game starts at 7pm, because Marina is in Marching Band and is going to perform during half time with her Orchestra class. So I was there talking to some people from band/orchestra and saw everybody in their suits and they looked so cute. Then I walked alone to the football field and sat at the bleachers where people I know from school and church sat. When the football game started the princesses and kings stood on their floats and then the marching band and cheerleader came and performed. We played against Rancho HS and won 57-12 or something. I don't exactly remember, but we won haha. It was our last homegame for the football season, which makes me so sad. Friday football nights were my favorites and the school spirit and the cheering was just amazing.
On Saturday the Cross Country team arranged the Kill Hill Challenge for The Valley. Just a few of my teammates ran, but mostly (including me) just helped out. I already ran the Kill hill at practice and all I can say is: Never again. It's a pretty rough course, especially running up the hill killed me and you just got sand in your shoes and everywhere you look is just dirt. And nahhh better not. The first race started at 8am and at 8:30 the 2nd. Around 10am we were done and my homecoming day could start. At 12am Marina and I did a picnic with a couple of friends in the Logandale park and then we drove to our house to watch a movie. Then I got myself ready for the dance. I showered, put on my dress, ate something and then we were at a friends house. There were some other girls who got ready for the dance. A friend of mine did my hair and one did my makeup and I looked so damn good at the end haha. The dance started at 8pm and ended at 11pm. The dance was so much fun! Even though not everybody danced so much as I did, I was rocking it on the dancefloor with my group of friends. The slow dances were kinda awkward, because I was dateless, which reminded me that I was single af, but never mind. There were only 2 or 3 slow songs, which was good, because the rest of the dance only fast songs were playing. My feet were sore and hurting during and after the dance. That's why I danced and walked barefoot at the end of the dance and it felt good lol...
And that's how my homecoming was and it was just amazing... I'll definitely gonna miss it! A lot! And it makes me so sad that it is my first and LAST homecoming :( Even though I spent this week more at school than at home, I love school. I really do...
