Song: Help by The Beatles
Last summer, the majority of my friends moved away. Three of them were my neighbors. At the time, I felt helpless and almost depressed. I had no one to hang out with.
I ended up staying in my room on my phone and not even spending much time with my family. My mom is a neuropsychologist and helped me get out of my slump.
We have always listened to The Beatles since I was a baby. At this time, we really bonded over the music. In the song, John Lennon was crying for help and I needed it too.
Song: King of the Clouds by Panic! At the Disco
At the beginning of the year, I found out there was a Panic! concert in Charlottesville. It was a weekend so Catherine and I begged our parents to go.
We were such big fans and always listened to his music when we hung out together. One of the songs that played was King of the Clouds.
There was fog machines to make it look like he was on a cloud. The song is about being on top of the world. Catherine and I were so happy we felt like we were on top of the world.
Song: Ghostbusters by Ray Parker, Jr.
When we use to play on snow days, we got too cold and would go to her house to play Just Dance 4 to warm up. We almost always did the Ghostbusters theme song.
I remember Jess and I wanted to be Slimer but her younger brother wouldn't let us because we couldn't fly like him. I've played Just Dance with her more times than I can remember and everytime was the most fun time I ever had.
Song: Scars to you your beautiful by Alessia Cara
I feel that the world we live in today is very negative.
In the song, Alessia talks about how everyone is perfect, but they end up comparing themselves to others and want to change.
Her statement really spoke to me because many people, myself included, have insecurities and deserve to hear her message and love themselves. I am now more confident about my image.
Overjoyed and Proud
Victorious by Panic! at the Disco
I was also competing in the hardest age group. My teammates were in a division with me where we do a routine together. The three of us weren't expecting anything since it was our first year.
In the end I ended up third in the country by a fraction of a point. I have never been more overjoyed than I was in that moment.
