I did! It was really fun!
Yeah! I got a new bed!
It was fun. Dad and I went shopping for it at Ikea - we got a mattress too so we got to go and try out all the matresses.
It is so comfortable! I love it so much that I never want to get out of bed. Of course I'm not sure if that's the bed or not wanting to get up. Probably both!
I got my permit!
No I don't drive Dad's truck. I drive the Acadia and I've driven the van a few times.
I like the Acadia but that's because I drive it all the time so I'm used to it.
I'm looking forward to club volleyball season because it's a good club and I have a really good coach! And because we have a lot of exciting tournaments and our team has lots of talent and potential.
And I'm really excited to get my license. When will that be? I can get it February 29th and I'm counting down the days!
What do you like best about school? I like seeing my friends and being able to be social.
And what don't you like so much about it? Probably the school part. I'm taking really challenging classes so I have a big workload that encompasses a lot of homework. And I don't have a lot of time at home because of volleyball and trying to balance school with a social life.
What career path do you think you might pursue? I've been thinking about working in the medical field but I'm not sure what doctor yet.I was looking at Stanford just because they have a really good premed as well as medical program and their campus is really pretty and on the coast. But it's really far away and expensive and I haven't been searching many schools - just a few. I still have to see what's out there and I may find one that's a better fit.
I don't do much besides school, having a life, and volleyball. I am in Deca which is like a marketing kind of business club for students.
No, I don't let that happen. My GPA right now is above a 4.0 I just don't know the exact number. So you have straight As? Yes. And you have had straight As since you started high school? Yeah, I mean my whole life. I've never had a B EVER!
Yes, the season just ended in November. It was my second varsity season. We actually went to district finals but we lost and it was devastating. I did make first team all-conference which was comprised of the top 12 players out of six teams. I'm pretty sure I was the only sophomore. And I had the second most votes from all the coaches so I was the runner up for MVP. I also made second team all-region which is very exciting. That sounds like a big honor. Yeah because it was all the conferences in the region, it was the top 24 players, and I was the only sophomore and the youngest on both teams.
Outside hitter. Do you play all the way around then? For high school I played all the way around but the position itself requires you to play front row but you can be taken out for the back row. It kind of depends on the team. Do you like playing all around or are you content with front row only? Oh no! I love playing all the way around! I love both offense and defense. I don't have much experience with sitting on the bench but I feel like I'd get bored.
No. She helped my first and second year of club ball but since then we're in a more competitive club and they hire coaches.
This picture of Katie with her mom and brother was taken after her team won their district finals.
and I just liked seeing family when it was warm and we could get out more and do so much more.
I'm a perfectionist!
Actually we do get along well and it kind of surprises me because all my friends say they don't get along with their siblings. So especially David and Zachary; and Matthew and I like to have fun with each other which is fine but sometimes it gets a little iffy.
