Earlier this week, we got to sit down with Jaime and chat with her about her expectations, excitement, and anticipation for THON. Well now that THON is in full swing, we were able to find Jaime through the sea of capes and tutu’s to see how she’s been so far and if it is all she hoped it would be!
How are you doing so far?
Good. My feet hurt, but whose doesn’t? I don’t really have a voice right, either, but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else right now. All this stuff is mental, so if I can push through the pain, I’ll be fine.
What has been your favorite part so far about THON 2014?
Me and 12 other dancers from my sorority and paired fraternity just walked all through the halls hanging on to one long rope like you did when you were in kindergarten. Everyone was staring at us, but it was so much fun, and that’s all that really mattered. That’s what this weekend is all about, and I’m loving every moment of it.
What’s something you’re looking forward to?
I’m trying no to look forward to anything, because every moment is one closer to the end. So I’m enjoying every single second as it comes, and I’ll enjoy every second until the very end.
What’s been your favorite song to dance to so far?
“Can’t Remember to Forget You” by Shakira and Rihanna.
Jaime’s doing great so far, and we will be catching up with her after THON to talk about her full experience as a THON dancer. Keep up the good work everyone! You’re doing great, especially you, Jaime!
