Step Into My Week: Orientation, First Day of School, and LTI

This past week was absolutely amazing. So many of my favorite activities started last week. It was a great start to the year.

I'm an orientation leader for my school. We had our orientation on Monday. I was paired with the sweetest girls. I absolutely love my school, so it was awesome to show them around answer any of their questions. One of the girls on my tour happens to be one of my good guy friend's sister, so that was cool!

I absolutely love the first day of school. I don't get to see all of my friends during Summer, so it was amazing to see all of my friends again. Each grade always does a cute skit to help new kids learn everyone's names. One of my friend's named everyone last year in a little competition, so we recreated that competition. It was super cute. The teachers did an amazing job coordinating their skit.

The rest of the first week of school was pretty great. Overall, I'm pretty happy with my teachers and classes. I'm super pumped about my journalism and English classes this year.

Theater also started. This year's fall play is going to be amazing. We have an insanely big cast (25+ people), so it will definitely be interesting to see how this production pans out. I know it's going to be fantastic. The costume ideas are absolutely amazing. I'm so excited about this year's productions.

BBYO had LTI (Leadership Training Institute) last weekend. We spent a lot of time learning how we can better improve our chapter, learned what our leadership style is, played capture the flag, and had a council meeting. I got closer with a lot of the girls in my chapter. This year is going to be seriously amazing. I'm so excited for all this year has in store!

I know this post is crazy late. I've been with the insanity of a new school year. One of my friends is sleeping over, I'm going to an art exhibit, and I have a BBYO program this weekend. It's definitely going to be a fun weekend.
