Coincidently, we were both recently fired from our jobs, and we had to go pick up our last paychecks that day.

She came to our jazz band class about a week before the program started. She was very professional and pretty loud. I’d never met Mrs. Lisa before then and I already didn’t like her. I hadn’t planned on doing the jazz program but just kind of fell into it.

They also say phrases like “where is the game at?” or “How long is the tournament suppose to last this weekend?” As I spoke with some female volleyball players from my old school they said some interesting things to say. The most interesting quote that one of the players, varsity team, told me, “Unless I was friends with players from the team before the season started I really don’t hang-out or talk to them outside of team gatherings.
