Why hello there!

^_^ This is Sarah aka: Skittles. ^_^ So this season so far... Well we all went to the kick-off and saw this year's game. Some game huh? I think it's the most challenging, thought provoking, mind boggling, insanely awseome game ever. It made us really think long and hard about what we were doing and what we wanted to do. This year we've had a lot of challenges, but as a team we were able to pull through them all. (Don't worry. I'm sure there'll be plenty more. ^_^) I joined this team way back in 2005, and I am amazed at how much of a change the team has gone through. Over these past 7 years I have learned so much more than I ever thought possible. I have met the coolest people and made the best of friends. Early on, this team molded itself and became one of the top teams around. Over the past few years however, we have become more than just a team. We've become a family. Now a lot of people probably don't know this, but I used to be a very shy person, I still kind of am. But when I joined this team, my fellow teamates instantly made me feel like I belonged. Through the years I have become more and more of a... shall we say... "social flower"... and I have made some great friends. And every year I make more, whether it be from new team members or meeting people at the competition. Throughout my time on the team there are a few things that I can easily conclude: 1. We are a very closely knit group. 2. Every year we continue to up our standard of what engineering excellance is. and 3.

We are all going to do great things, go to great places, make great mistakes, and love every minute of it. ^_^ So this is everyone's not-so-subtle reminder that life is too short to be taken seriously, so let's have fun, do our best, and come back next year and do it all over again. ^_^
