“GOOD MORNING SANTA CLARA!”
Finals day, a day and moment that will always be in my heart. I remember looking at now one of my bestest friend Sophie, before we went on to do our final run, we did our ritual little saying and i looked at sophie and i said…
” Soph, can i tell you something? I remember being in my room on my computer watching Phantom, BD, Cavies, SCV 2004 over and over again, and Crown telling myself one day i’ll be them and i can not wait to audition wherever i go. I remember watching Phantom 2008 a million times and i would always see something new every time and falling in love with them every single damn time. Then i saw BD in 2009, where i was literally on my feet the whole show and i just wanted scream on top of my lungs of excitement. I remember telling myself, one day i’ll be on a field doing a finals show and i get to watch myself on youtube lol. Now look at where we are, at finals, about to do our finals show, and moments away from everything that I’ve always dreamed of.”
We became so teary eyed that we stopped ourselves before bursting our tears to each other. Then they called us up to get ready,(Santa Clara Vanguard you’re up!) i looked at soph and soph looked at me and she said ” you ready?” i said, “We’re ready..”
Where to begin my goodness. Well let’s start off by Thank you, thank you for an amazing 4 years of your talent, kindness, understanding, your patience, your humor, and most of all your heart. You have shown me more then just cute twirls and dancing but finding someone in me that i never thought in my life existed. Not only did you coach me but you were there for me whether it was good or bad even at 1 am when i really needed to talk to you.. i will always remember my senior year when i had the best show of my high school career and i was balling, crying my eyes out and couldn’t even talk, when i went up to you were like oh my gawd Roxy are you OK? are you hurt? With all the tears and stuttering and one of the most happiest moments of my life, i responded, that the world was on my side for 11 min and an indescribable feeling appeared and you were there to see it all. You took my hand and gave me the biggest hug in the world with the biggest smile on your face. Today you saw that person, the girl who had the world in her hands for a good 6 minutes. That was for you, and you only, because in the end it was your vision and it was my heart to give it to you. When i took my arm band off at the last moment of the show, all these moments passed my head, memories, and me thinking… wow this is my last show with you watching me in the stands,your creation, and most of all your kid. I love you so much and i know we’ll always be close, just remember that you’re the reason why i had the world in my hands in some point in time in my life..
