Yes! Yes! Yes! I made the team. I am so happy. I got to miss 5th period today to go to the dentist. My teeth are fine. Softball practice was really fun. It was so much less stressful! I’m on the team now. Didn’t go to group — too much homework. Stayed up till 10:30. Showered at 7:30. Had chili at 7:00. Dried hair and studied.
