Playing Catch-Up

Posted by Nicole

It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve lasted posted on this little ol’ blog. I guess it’s time to recap the past couple of days with some random photos and blurbs…

Saturday – I dropped my mom off at the airport in the early morning and couldn’t help but notice the beautiful view of downtown and the sunrise on my way back. Later that night, I danced at the USC vs. Cal game. We lost, which was a bummer, but two of my guy friends from San Jose were there to watch me dance! I always like actually knowing people in the audience. Afterwards, we partied and yaaaaaa…… It was fun! I love Bay Area people.

Sunday – My first coffee since Christmas! I’m still loving coffee with sugar-free peppermint syrup, and I’m loving that the local Starbucks hasn’t run out of holiday cups yet. After coffee, I went to brunch with dance friends, fixed the rhinestones on my dance dress, and then went to dinner with a dance friend. Because few students are back at USC, I’ve been spending lots of time with my fellow Dance Force buddies. It’s lots of fun and hopefully they aren’t sick of me yet ;)

Monday – All this week, we have dance practice 10 AM – 1 PM. Because PAC-12 season is officially kicked off (last semester was considered “preseason”), we are finalizing some of our better dances that we’ve been saving. I’m excited for the rest of the games this year so we can whip the routines out! And just for kicks, a random photo of the sky? I don’t know.

Monday Night – Last night was super fun! Nika, one of the freshmen on the dance team, turned 19 so we had a bit of a birthday party.

We started the night at the dance captains’ house and then went to hangout with the basketball team.

Oddly enough, all 12 of the girls on our team were wearing boots, and of course we had to take a cheesy photo.

The rest of the night can be explained by this snapchat…

Just kidding, we weren’t actually getting stacks of cash (sorry Mom, this probably makes no sense, and please don’t listen to that song). It was lots of fun, but we were all pretty tired at dance practice this morning. Sacrifices?

Hope your week is going well. My brain is still in winter break mode and I’m nervous about getting back to real life when classes start on Monday. Yikes.
