Today was such a beautiful day. Did anyone else catch the sky this morning? I kicked myself for not bringing my camera to school today...
Last Friday we had another tournament, this time in Beaumont.
Friggin Kelsey and her height. How dare she tower over me. Anyways, volleyball... God. It started out so fun this season. It was all about actually enjoying the game. I was so optimistic. But, as they always do, things have gone kind of negative. Honestly, we're a good group of girls. We're definitely a talented team, we've shown that many times. But seriously, we lost so many matches in Beaumont by a margin of like, 3 points. I thought Mme was just bullshitting us when she said we did that a lot last season. But no, it's actually quite true. So what's the problem then? Why do we choke? Why is it that at our school, all the other teams are so strong? In the end, I think it really does come down to our coach. Our juvenile coach. Our disorganized, hypocritical coach.
I was thinking. We need to make things about the TEAM. And only the team. In our heads as players we should only focus on wanting to do well for the team, for each other, and not for Mme. Renele made my point for me the next day. I'm just glad that others agree.
Btw Michelle, if I never think to say it later, you have no idea how grateful I am that you and Renele are captains. You guys are sensible, and don't make comments without thinking (a la Khaloud). You do a good job of representing the team (and dealing with mme.)
Anyways, I baked cookies like crazy for the tournament. I baked one giant cookie for my brother. Seriously, it was the size of a dinner plate. If I can find the picture, I'll post it.
I seriously had so many things to say, but I'm getting a little too sleepy. Speaking of sleepy, I actually succeeded in falling asleep in class for the first time yesterday! It was just for a few moments. We were learning essay theory in French class, and I just kind of nodded off. I heard the class laugh at something, and I got startled, and woke up.
Anyways, enough for now I think. Time to sleep.
Adelaide sent me a few weeks back the "For the Birds" album. I listened to a few songs, but that was it, because I was in my Radiohead phase again. Well, last week I was going through my mp3 player, came across The Frames, and was like OH YEAH! So I listened to it for real last Friday, and got myself hooked. Seriously, how did I just toss it aside earlier? So an extra thank you goes to Addey for the Frames. It's been entertaining me for the entire week.
