Time flies when you’re having fun, doesn’t it? I know I say it every week, yet it’s true. I can’t believe I have come this far. I submitted an essay so long ago, thinking that I would probably never hear about it again… Yet then I recieved the call for an interview. I thought I was so fortunate to get that far… To push further seemed like a stretch. I thought, ‘no way I’ll be picked…’ Even though I really wanted to. When I recieved the call from Lisa asking if I wanted to be one of the contestants, I was so overjoyed that I cried. Nothing had ever happened like that! Yet that seems like a lifetime ago, really.
And yet, it doesn’t seem like that long ago at all. Funny how things can be like that, huh? When I started this whole competition, I hadn’t really anticipated the struggles I would face, or even what fun I’d have. Never in my life did I think that I would enjoy exercise, and yet I do. I find any bit of fun I can when working out, and it isn’t hard to find. Something else I didn’t anticipate were the friends I would gain in the process of this all. Every morning, I wake up with a grin on my face, and I can’t wait to see the other girls. I’ll always chime a ‘good morning!’ hoping that I’ll help start their morning with a smile. They’ve all done so amazingly, as well, and I have learned so much from them in the process.
All I can say is that I hope these friendships and good times will continue long after this competition. I know I won’t be going anywhere when it’s all over. Keep it up, everyone!
