I'm done with DIY's.
If you didn't know, my blog was originally about Do It Yourself crafts (DIY's), but being Avery LAME this idea turned my blog into one LAME ass blog. So, I changed it to daily adventures/experiences that I encounter in my life, it might be about soccer, my family, boys, school, food I mean I'm a freshman in high school I have a kabillion things going on in my head so one week I might have some soccer problems... next week I'm on a "I'm failing school, and I'm not going to a good college anymore rant." Just throwing you a heads up. Now, even though this blog is supposed to be about my LAME life I still try to set goals and standards for myself so that this won't be a total disaster (or that's what I have to tell myself. ) To kick my list of goals off, I am on a P2 soccer team, and we are 8th in the state, I play right back which is part of the defensive line. My soccer team is amazing, and the girls I play with are some of my closest friends. However, this year the National Soccer Association changed how teams were arranged, they used to be made up by school year and now it's birth year, and most of my team are young 01's which means we will be playing HUGE 15-16 year old girls. Therefore, my goal for myself and soccer team this year is to become stronger, faster and have better footwork for us to move up to P1 and possibly win state. I personally think that the way I will achieve my goal for myself and team is by working extra hard, and hitting the gym to get some more muscle! Another thing I would like to accomplish is redecorating my room. I haven't changed it since I moved here which was 3 years ago!! The first thing I would like to do, is paint my room a baby blueish/grayish color and get a new bed frame, a glass desk because they're super cool, and a furry white chair. I think I would like to get this project done over winter break since I will be home. My last personal goal I would like to achieve, is to travel to Mexico and not get sick. I know this sounds like a super dumb goal but to be honest it is completely true. Why? Let me tell you. I've been to Mexico twice in my life, the first time I got Norovirus and was stuck in my room for a week. The second time, I was in Sayulita, and I ate meat there because I wasn't thinking... so I ended up with food poising for basically my whole trip. This goal applies to my life because over April break my family is headed back to the same resort where I got Norovirus and my goal is to not get food poising, or Norovirus and in general not sick at all. And I have a plan... eat quesadillas the whole dang time. After writing those goals, I don't currently have any more at the moment but I'm sure they will come at some point... in the mean time keep up with my weekly/monthy/yearly blogs because who knows what will happen in The Life of Avery LAME.
Blogging serves many purposes for people. Personally, it is a way for me to share my thoughts to the outside world. An aspect of blogging, I would like to obtain is that when writing about my life, it will inspire me to live a more intentional life. This is a goal for me because I feel that being a high school student, and a competitive athlete I don't live my life to the fullest. My schedule from Monday to Thursday consists of school, soccer, running, and the gym. On Fridays I hangout with my friends as well as Saturday, and on Sundays I do homework. I hope to achieve this goal because my blog is about my life, and will help me open up my eyes to new things to try and adventures to go on.
