AHH! I am really... really... actually AT THE U.S. CLASSIC! We're in Tennessee... and it's definitely very different than Colorado. But I am soo stoked to be here! I am so excited that I qualified to be here at the last minute, and so soon after becoming an elite!
I am not expecting nor hoping to do too well tomorrow. I'm aiming for no major mistakes, that is my goal. I know I won't make it to Nationals, but if I stay healthy I might be able to next year, and getting to experience a big meet like this before will probably prove to be something very good. So needless to say I am very, very happy.
I am also very happy because my family has suprised me by flying out here to see me compete! Like, my entire family! It's really nice to see them all, and to see them all together, despite the fact that they're two separate families really. But the split wasn't too bad, and it's been a while now, so it makes me really happy that they can be united. Especially for me :)
I am also really happy because last night Tyler told me he liked me! We were on the phone, and I was telling him how nervous I am about this competition, and he was like, "well, Karri, I will be so proud of you no matter what happens. You're doing something so exciting and I wish I could be there with you," and then he paused and said, "I... I really like you, Karrianne. And I don't just mean as a friend." When he said that I kind of shreiked and I was like, "oh my gosh, me too!" But for some reason it got awkward immediately after that, so we decided to talk about it when I got back and he wished me luck and blew me a kiss through the phone. Aww :)
So yeah, no matter what happens I will be happy!
