It’s nearly 1 in the morning, and I should be in bed, but I’m in a complete state of shock. After being encouraged to try out for the Kansas City Roller Warriors All Stars a couple of weeks ago, I signed up and tryouts finished up tonight. I initially thought the experience would be a great preparation for making the B team, but tonight I learned I’m on the Charter for the All Stars.
I can’t believe it. I was sitting at the sidelines at regionals not long ago, watching these girls with stars in my eyes, thinking that some day — just not any time soon — I’d be able to call them my teammates. And then tonight, I’m trying on KCRW All Star jerseys. I’m pinching myself.
I need to get to bed. But I’ll write more soon. Wish me luck sleeping tonight!
