I was a college cheerleader. Yes it is true and yes I thought and still think that it's cool.
During those years I had the time of my life and was in the BEST shape of my life (very serious about this one).
I could throw some mean tumbling passes and absolutely loved the rush of getting to fly high. Don't ever accuse this girl of having trust issues.... exhibit A below.
Cheerleading has taken me to some pretty amazing places in my life. New York for the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade, London for the London New Year's Day parade, and Walt Disney's Wild World of Sports. I would never have gotten these opportunities without cheerleading. Hence, cheerleading is pretty amazing.... Yeah hence!

I'm still a nut for spirit fingers, pom poms, and coordinated eight count routines but I'm now a veteran.
I am a has been, who was cool at one time, and a few pounds lighter... but I can still throw a pretty mean back handspring.
