Cheerleading Tryouts! Watch out for the Drama!
It’s natural to get excited and nervous about cheerleading tryouts but some people take it a bit too far. You know what happens. You hang out with your friends and you talk about tryouts. You text your friends about tryouts. You call your friends and chat about tryouts. You IM your friends and exchange your worries about tryouts.
All of this would be fine if such discussions were objective exchanges of information but they usually are not. No, instead they could be tidbits of rumors and gossip carried out in high-voltage drama.
You hear one friend say she’s never gotten over her last try out and will never ever put herself through it again. You hear another friend complain that tryouts weren’t fair. You listen to still another person say that only certain people will be selected. Wow! Even a little of this kind of talk can put you over the edge!
