Soccer

Soccer is very important to me. It has a special place in my heart for lots of reason. It reminds me of California where I grew up for 10 years and started playing it, all the different uniforms, team names, cheers, the constant scramble to find my uniform 5 minutes before I need to leave for my game. But putting that aside, I met my best friend because of soccer which is something I am very thankful, my teammates have become my family and since they're all from SLC I can tell them anything and everything without the gossip getting back to Park City. I love the rush of adrenaline I get before a game, or the butterfly's when the other team has the ball, and the crazyyy vibe my whole team feels when we score and all sprint to each other.
A lot of people think that people play sports for college scholarships, or for the exercise and that's it, but there is so much more to sports than just that. Personally, after joining Impact I realized I'm not playing soccer for the exercise or the college scholarships but because I am passionate about it, I play for my team not for me or my parents, I play to push myself, to surprise myself, I go to practice sad and leaving laughing because of my teammates.
I have played defense since I started soccer. I mean sure scoring would be rad but there is nothing I love more than having an awesome cut off and preventing a goal, or clearing the ball and opening up an amazing opportunity for my teammates. I think that all positions are important, every player is needed on the field for the team to play well.
Obviously this is the least important part of playing soccer but having a dank uniform, or cleats is rad. My club is sponsored by Adidas so are uniform is prettyyy cool. We have all black uniforms for home games, and all white for away... I mean yahh it's litty.
Something else that I really love are tournaments, my coach assigns rooms and we get to hang out all together as a team, have some crazy hotel parties, sleepovers, adventures, and memories. The most recent tournament we had was in Arizona. We stayed in this super nice hotel and it was so much fun I can't describe it.
Anyways, hope you liked my blog about soccer and what it means to me. See ya next time because you NEVER know what's going to happen in

School/Summer/Sports

As a freshman in high school, daughter, sister, competitive athlete, and friend my life is very chaotic.

School is particularly difficult for me, especially managing my social life and school work. I really enjoy hanging out with my friends on Friday and over the weekend but sometimes I have to choose school over friends... like today. I decided to procrastinate on my blog therefore I had to come home early from hanging out to complete this blog... now see this could all be different if I had done it on Thursday or earlier in the week but no I didn't so I'm sitting in my bed at 8:30 pm alone doing homework. But at least I'm doing my assignment! :/ Another thing I'm sucking at this year is math. No matter how hard I try, or how many early morning math labs I go to... things are just not working and I have no clue why. And it stinks.

Sports are amazing. I love them because I am able to forget about everything going on and just put my head down and focus. Soccer is able to do that for me, when I go to practice for those 2 hours I am able to forget about everything and not have a worry or care in my life which is hard to do. My thoughts on sports in general is they are just over all good for your mind and body. You are able to work you body, but also develop character, work ethic, and can let your mind be free. The past few months my soccer team has been indoors which has sucked but we started practice outdoors this week and I am so happy about it. When we practice outdoors their is this whole other element that I just love. Soccer is so good right now.

Summer... needs to come faster! I can't wait for summer there is no school, no homework, you get to sleep in, more soccer, more time to hang with friends, travel, get tan, eat popsicle's it the bomb. This summer is going to be the best ever! I think I am going to Hawaii, Mexico, and California for like 6 weeks! I love the warm weather because I used to live in California and by the beach which is my favorite place ever.

I know this was a short blog post, and didn't have a lot of meaning to it but I hope you enjoyed my mini rant, love for soccer and excitement for summer! catcha latter alligator!! xoxo Avery LAME
