How to Get Better at Tennis

Hey y'all! I am a Varsity tennis player at my high school! Today I am sharing my tips on how to become a better tennis player, what to bring when you play, and more! Enjoy!

1. Don't get mad if you lose your match. Instead of getting mad at yourself, admit what you did wrong, learn from your mistakes, and get better.
2. Be aggressive when playing, but don't go out and kill the ball! All of my friends call me a power house because I hit the ball so hard, but you must maintain control of the ball. What I mean about killing the ball is, don't hit it as hard as you can, most likely it will go out.
3. Bring a towel to your match if you sweat a lot.
4. Be positive. If you are playing doubles, it's a good idea to high five your partner after each point to keep each other motivated. 
5. Your partner comes before picking up a ball. If you are playing doubles and you won the point, don't just turn around, pick up the ball, then go high five your partner. High five your partner first then go get the ball.
6. Move your feet and bend your knees! Staying on the balls of your feet will make you balanced and ready to go.
7. Stay focused. If there is a ball on the court, pick it up. Get your mind set on the game.
8. Bring lots of water and light foods like fruit to the match. 
9. Wear a visor and sunglasses. The visor keeps your hair and sweat out of your eyes and the sunglasses protects your eyes from the sun.
10. Wear shorts or a tennis skirt where you can stick tennis balls in it. 
11. Try to mix up the shots that you hit. Do some forehands, backhands, lobs, volleys, slice, spin, short shots, deep shots, etc.
12. Text your friends and get out on the courts and play with each other! I have a "tennis family" where we play tennis, hang out together, and have become very close friends! 

Thanks for reading! Good luck in your tennis game! 
Love,
Gabby

My Driving Test

Hey y'all! Today I am sharing my rather hilarious driving test results, enjoy!

When we first arrive, I am literally shaking, I am so nervous! When the highway police men entered my car and we started my test, I drove to a deserted neighborhood and parked on a hill. So far so good! After driving around in the neighborhood, we drive back to where we started and I parallel parked. Actually I tried to parallel park...

Explanation:
Sooo you guys are probably wondering what the heck I was doing in the car! Well, I was going into the parking spot but I cut too sharp and didn't correct myself fast enough so I hit the curb. When I hit the curb I tried to correct myself again and ended up hitting the front cone. I put the car in reverse and backed up a foot or two. When the highway department officer told me to go back to the front of the building, I forgot I was still in reverse so when I pressed the gas we went backwards. I drove the car back to the fro…
