Senior Year was one of the most exciting times! I honestly can't believe it's over.
Fall: The year started with football season and I was in the marching band for the first time in my life. Somehow between Noth and Becca I ended up as the pit section leader. Although I may be a total geek, I absolutely loved marching band. It was full of fun experiences and even funnier kids. The fall also brought HOMECOMING! I got ready with my friend Nick's girlfriend Catie and as we were getting ready to leave Nick got me a corsage since I was dateless. Very sweet. The night was full of dancing and friends!
Winter: Fast-forward to snowmagedan... Charlottesville got pounded with two huge snow storms that left us out of school for 2 weeks, and me snowed in with little cousins for 2 days. It was nice to have an additional 2 week break this winter. As the snow was falling the Dudley girls snuck down to Williamsburg for a weekend away. It was quite fun and I was excited to see a lot of the cousins I haven't seen in a while. Dudley Girls Getaway Weekend was followed by District Choir. Last one! The director was quite strict but we learned a lot and we sounded great. That's when I found out I made All-State
Spring: The biggest event of the spring semester was PROM! I went with one of my best friends Ian. I had a blast, and he was such a gentleman! Honestly one of the best times ever! Prom was followed by All-State. I escaped school and the looming CAP project for a weekend in DC with the wonderful director and composer Z. Randall Stroope. One of the best experiences of my life! Honestly I learned so much and the sound of a 250 some choir was something I'll never forget! All-State was unluckily followed by CAP , which sucked. CAP stands for Citizen Action Project, it's where the 12th graders are placed in groups and asked to become informed participants in a certain public policy area. Let's just say the world's most stressful project all shoved into the end of my senior year. We ran with the debatable question, "Should Virginia have a statewide grading scale". The rest of the spring was totally occupied by FAME our school's spring musical, and I was basically the music director! I was so proud of the cast... they were amazing! The final act as a senior other than graduation and senior night was CALE FIELD DAY! My last BBBS (big brother big sister) event :( It was so much fun working with the little kids and getting sprayed by the firetruck!
