A Letter To My Former Teammates

I can't begin to imagine life without y'all.

A Letter To My Former Teammates
McKenzie Brouk

Seven years went by in the blink of an eye. Seven years spent with each and everyone of you who has been apart of this team. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I cant even begin to picture what my life would have been like without all of you in it. The feelings of sadness, but also joy comes to mind as I am finishing my final year as a Texas All Stars with all of you. There aren't enough words in the world to thank you for making my time on Synchro, but I'm going to try and put through words on how grateful I am.

Thank you for always being there for me through the good times and the bad. Your constant positive attitudes and pushing me to be my absolute best has kept me going all these years. if I was having a bad day at school I could always come to practice and my entire mood would be turned around because I was surrounding by the people I love who never fail to make me laugh. Know that I will always be here for you even when I'm all the way in Michigan. I will just be one phone call or text away for whatever you might need.

Thank you for being my literal family. I'll never forget the amazing memories we have all made together. We have been to so many cool places like Disney World, California, Wisconsin, Chicago, St. Louis, Mall of America, and so many more. This team has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me, and I will be thankful for the rest of my life.

Next year is going to be so different not skating alongside all of you, but I'm so excited to see how y'all do next season. I will be cheering so loud for you whether it is via video or in the stands (which still seems crazy to me). My heart breaks that I wont have another practice or competition with you, but all great things must come to an end. I just think of how lucky I truly am to have something that is so special that makes it incredibly hard to say goodbye to.

To all my younger sisters, remember to keep skating, work hard, and push through the bad days. I cant wait to see where life takes each and everyone of you. So even though my time as a Texas All Star is coming to an end the bond we have created with each other will last forever.

I love you girls so much and thank you for an amazing, and unforgettable seven years.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
