Dear Mom and Dad,

 Remember me, the daughter that you took care of for 18 years, one month, and eight days of her life before you shipped her off into uncharted waters? Well don’t feel guilty, because I LOVE IT! I never would have dreamed that going to school in California would be such a drastic change from little old Apopka, Florida.

 They are on two completely different ends of the spectrum. With the biggest difference being the weather — I am sorry to say, California wins in that category. Let’s just say, humidity and frizzy hair are no longer part of my vocabulary.

 So to start off the school year, the freshman class went on an annual campout called “Fusion.” It is an event meant to help you meet people before school, and honestly, I can’t even remember all the people that I met; I guess it worked! On Saturday, we played this game set up like the Amazing Race, and our Fusion group won! Yes, we beat every single boy in the freshman class — need I say more?

In other news, my busy schedule has kept me occupied (who would’ve thought!). With basketball, work, and school (in order from least to greatest, of course), sometimes I even forget to breathe! Basketball tryouts were this week. Basketball is going to be tough because we have a new squad, tons of work to do, and only six weeks to improve. We need to pull it together quick. It’s too bad that you can’t come to the games. Who is going to yell at the refs for making “pointless calls” now? It’s ok — I will make sure to keep you posted (no pun intended).

 I wish I could come visit, but I have to get everything done that you sent me out here to do: become a woman, study to become the greatest, and find myself a man! Don’t worry dad, that last one was a joke. Well, it is for right now. I love you!
