The story begins on what seemed to be another start to a typical week at my small, private high school... or so I thought.
Being a more introverted person, I have always kept to myself throughout my high school years; so when they announced they were looking for candidates, I was not effected at all. That is until my best friend decided she did not want to run alone.
I don't know...
Anybody running for homecoming, come see me immediately!
Please please please for me?
As well as being a reserved person, I was an impressionable person, too. After much objection, I finally caved in and decided to obtain one of the sign up forms. After all, I can always just not turn it in.
Whilst lying in bed, all I could think about was what could possibly happen if I treaded outside my boundaries a little bit. I was running to put myself out there. I would just be signing up to put my name on a ballot, right?
Do you maybe, possibly, by chance want to be my escort?
There was more to running than what I originally suspected. I was to campaign for votes and prove why I would be the best person to represent my school in this , which involved much more than treading outside my boundaries; I had to be ready for a leap.
What did I get myself into..
Come cast your votes!
Are you excited for the pep rally today!?
During that week, I gained much more confidence in myself and learned to enjoy embracing new things, including wanting to stray from my familiar, small town to a much larger, city school, such as the University of Pittsburgh.
And the Our Lady of Lourdes 2018 homecoming queen is...
