Love, Haley: Spring Break

Haley Ward
In this weekly blog, senior Haley Ward shares a little bit of everything: deep dives on her favorite topics, her fashion favorites, and how to make the most out of your high school years.

It is finally Spring Break for me and it is a really bittersweet feeling! As a senior it means I only have nine more weeks of being in high school. Only nine more weeks around my best friends and also only nine more weeks of this blog. There are so many things to look forward to after Spring Break: graduation, prom, powderpuff, grad parties, baccalaureate. But at the same time it feels so crazy that this year has flown by so fast. I feel like the first three quarters were more relaxed, but this last nine weeks is going to fly by with everything going on.

I had my last ever cheer banquet last night and it was a really sentimental time. I had cheered with the same girls for four years, so watching us all “retire our bows” was pretty sad. It was one of the first “endings” I have had this year and it gave me a glimpse of what I will feel at graduation. But I am forever grateful for all of the memories that being on that team gave me!

As I said, it is already Spring Break! I feel like Spring Break is a time where if you want to travel you can really travel anywhere, from the beach or the mountains, and it will be good weather. This year my family is going skiing in Colorado and I am super excited. I wrote a blog earlier this year about ski fashion, so definitely go read if you haven’t! I am not the best skier by any means, but my dad has been skiing since he was a kid so he definitely helps me down the mountain! I honestly prefer skiing over the beach, I just love the snow more.

When I get back from break, I know things are going to speed up. I just really want to focus on spending time with all of my friends and family while I can! So if you are not a senior, just really make every moment count. High school flies by and there are so many moments I wish I could relive. I am going to cherish these last nine weeks!

Happy Spring Break!

Love, Haley
