    Here We Go Titans, Here We Go! *clap Clap*

    Jeez. Those were the days, huh? I was a cheerleader from about 7th grade until I graduated high school. It was great up until I actually got in high school; there I was stuck in a room with the preppiest girls in the entire school who tried to make me "one of them" on...

    I Was A Former Cheerleader And Miss The Life!

    When I first encountered my first cheerleading group (previously did gymnastics, dance and trampoline wanting to fuse all three together.) Those were my first real close friends at the time who taught me alot, from confidence, boys, sex and sadly drinking lol. I had such a great...

    The Hags And Cads That Betrayed Me

    I have recently discovered that I have this sick habit to ONLY SEE THE GOOD in people, ending up cheering for and praising the wrong people. You see I have a caring heart, I always want to give too much to everybody, but I realized that some people just don't deserve nor need...

    You always hear people arguing about

    whether cheerleaders are athletes and let me tell you, after three years, two sprained ankles, one sprained neck, three sprained wrists and a broken rib, cheerleaders are pretty hardcore athletes. They get thrown around every practice and do you know how hard it is to do a...

    Not Really But.....

    I lost a bet to a cheerleader named Cathy at my school I said girls can't beat guys in sports and cheerleading isn't a sport. If I beat her in basketball she had to be my maid all year, but she beat me, so now she gets to make me into a cheerleader any way she wants. We...
