Stephanie Gentry Blog -- Day 1 -- April 11, 2008

Hey y'all!

We're way down south in Louisiana this weekend for Regionals. We compete tomorrow!

Today was a great day. Tabbs (Tabitha Yim) and I walked to Starbucks this morning for a little study session. Wow, it's humid here! But the warm nights are wonderful, they're one of the things I miss the most about home. Swizz picked up some Jason's Deli for lunch, and then we practiced at 4pm. It was one of the best pre-meet practices we've had as a team. Everyone was relaxed and got things done in as few turns as possible. We got out ofthere quickly so that we could make our dinner reservation at P.F. Chang's. We all love eating there, such great food! As we were finishing up dinner, a nice thunderstorm rolled in, lightning and thunder and the whole shebang! We don't get those out in Cali, either.

Our team activity for the night was a three-part musical, but I must say that a rendition of the Dixie Chicks? 'Not Ready to Make Nice' made the show. After visualizations, we've all started winding down and getting some treatment done so that our bodies feel good for tomorrow. The seniors are gonna get together real quick before we go to bed so that we can remember our Regional Cheer from freshman year. It is a SWG tradition for the freshmen to make up a cheer for regionals and then perform it once again their senior year. This is going to be interesting.

Watch our competition tomorrow if you can! It's going to be an unforgettable night because we're all gonna be IN THE ZONE!!! Get 'em Card!
