Boomer Party!

My football team, the Woodward Boomers, won their game tonight against the Elgin Owls. We won 21-10. Since our district record is now 4-2, that means we are going to playoffs, no if, ands, or buts about it. It's my senior year and we finally made it to the playoffs. The Boomers haven't been to playoffs since 2008.

For a small amount of back story, the class of 2012 (my class, obviously) went undefeated our freshmen year. The last freshmen team to go undefeated won state their senior year. So now you understand why it's so important to win. Such pressure. I like it. It makes for pre-game jitters, which aren't necessarily a bad thing.

If you're confused as to why I'm concerned with the football team and I say "we" like I play or something... I don't play but I'm a manager. Which means I do whatever the boys and coaches want me to do. I like it. I have made some of the best friends of my life through football and I don't know what I would do without them. I probably wouldn't be surviving the season.

I'm so proud of the boys, they deserve this. They have worked so hard and I know this because I have been right there with them the whole way.

Well, last week of the regular season is next week and then we are on to Round One of playoffs. I can't wait to see how far we make it. I love Boomer Football.

Ain't no party like a Boomer Party! <3

So, the first nine weeks of the last year of my high school career is done. Only three more to go. It seems as though everyone is hating their senior year, including my best friend, Abigail, from Denton, Texas. Senior-itis is kicking in for everyone.

I had Parent Teacher conferences last night. I'm absolutely hating my classes this year but my grades are fine. My mom likes to go to these things just for the pure fact she never comes to the school for anything other than football games. I'm not really invloved in anything that people can watch besides football.

My rants seem to be continuing on.

On a side note, I get my senior pictures in this weekend. Even though I ordered plenty, I have no clue whether I'm going to be handing out all of them. I have plenty of friends, of course but I just don't think that many people will want a picture of me. I'm known but not necessarily popular. I'll let you know how it goes later on.

Well, I'm going to head to be bed for tonight. I have a long day of reading to little kids tomorrow for this thing called Boomer Readers.

Here goes it.

Well, I want to start blogging, as inspired by blogger Elsie Larson. Her blog A Beautiful Mess is amazing. I love all her recipes and hairstyles and beauty tips she gives. She seems like an amazing person and I know if I had a chance I would totally go meet her.

For starters I guess I could talk about myself a bit since you don't seem to know anything about me. My name is Andrea Caldwell, I live in Woodward, Oklahoma. That's almost as small town as it gets. Even though we have a fairly good sized population, it's small enough that everyone still has their nose in your business. I like living in a small town for the convenience of not having to deal with exits and what not when it comes to driving, but I do not like small town drama. Now I'm ranting. I'm still in high school and I'm super ready for college. I've only made one campus visit and I'm in the process of applying to Oklahoma State University and University of Oklahoma. I have no clue where I want to go, I just know that I want to go... Somewhere. I like to do lots of things and I feel that I'm fairly well rounded whenever it comes to my interests. I sew, quilt, debate, manage football, shoot bows and guns, gossip, get pedicures, and many other fun things. I try to be as real as I can be but also try to not step on any one's toes. It doesn't always work out so well. I take concurrent college classes along with my regular high school classes and I'm already done with my first semester of college. Well, I think this is a lot about myself for now. We'll all learn more along the way, I suppose.

That's me, by the way.
I want this blog to be my thoughts and feelings for the day and to share my experiences for others to learn from. I'm an open person, so please don't read if you think you might be offended in any way. I'm going to try and write every day. So here it goes...
