Goodphil 2012 in Houston

Whoop. The last few days has been competition for the FSAs around the world. We compete in dances and sports. I am super dark from being outside for so long.

My girls and I just dominated and got 1st place in Women’s Basketball for UTSA!! Happy victory. We never beat UH so it was nice to do so. I didn’t stay for the trophy ceremony. I wanted to eat dinner with the fam back home. We placed in the other sports I played as well as didn’t play but I don’t know what it is though. Just showered. Going to take a nap. And then off to San Antonio!

I realized I never updated about my roadtrip. It’ll come soon. Promise. Til then, Happy Sunday!

Think Good Thoughts: Living

FTK Co-Rec Soccer is in the Playoffs and we won our game tonight! Whoop! Smile I played a little bit but with shin splints and all it was hard so I was sad but we did great!

And now onto Thankful Thursday!

I’m thankful I got to go to THON. I got to see things that not many people have a chance to see. I am hoping I can go next year to relive it again. Fingers crossed! I probably can’t go with the group again since I would have graduated but maybe a reunion or something?

I am thankful I am alive. I tend to think about a lot of things when I drive. Most of the time when I’m quiet, I’m thinking about something. Driving or not. Good or bad. I drove to a lot of places today that gave me time to think that I almost got into, give or take, 5-7 car accidents. I actually rammed into a stone wall while backing out tonight after taking someone home. Yes, it was that bad.

I’m thankful I have friends like Shayna and Patrica. I’m sitting in their living room watching the telly and typing this out while they are asleep. Yes, another schedule post written in the past! We had a girl’s night. Much needed for all of us. We drank wine and watched Criminal Minds so I could stop thinking about everything while I worked on some FTK stuff … of course. I’m not able to tell them all the little details of things but I’m able to tell the gist since they were kind of there for everything.

I’m thankful for my FSA big, Rex. I bumped into him in the halls today and he knew something was wrong because I wasn’t smiling for the first time. I didn’t tell him anything and insisted I was not sad. But with his hug, tears welled in my eyes. There are so many people who are there for me when I least expect it, yet I’m never able to open up.

I am thankful for my siblings. Given I don’t tell them anything that goes on with me but if I get a text or a message on Facebook, just seeing it makes my day. Especially when they send me cute pictures of their doggies, aka my nephews. I cannot wait too meet my newest nephew! I’m not sure if they decided to change his name or not but he’s two years old. Sissy, Brett, and Ross got him at the pound.

There are other things I’m thankful for of course. The list can go on. But right now, those are what holds dear to my heart.

I hope everyone has a Thankful Thursday! Think of all the good that you have and the bad will slowly disappear, hopefully.

FSA Parties

I’m thankful I’ve grown up to realize that I don’t need to pretend to be someone I’m not.

Tonight I looked around the room and saw so many people trying to fit in. They try so hard to get someone to laugh at their jokes or to get some kind of approval. I feel sorry for those people. The sooner they realize trying hard will never get them to fit in, the sooner they realize their own personalities are lovely. That they don’t need to pretend.

I’ve made new friendships tonight and had fun getting to know certain people but it would have been better without the annoying people, loud noises, big crowds, drunk people vomiting everywhere, and the such.

I forgot how FSA parties get …

Football practice tomorrow! I’m ready.

Practice Makes Perfect

Plans to study and catch up with school work just went down the toilet.

The only productive thing I’ve done all day was basketball practice for 3 hours. We girls do basketball practices with the guys so you know it’s pretty hardcore. I pulled my thigh muscle and my knee was killing me again. I’m getting so old. But it was a good workout, made some three pointers and posted up on them boys! Whoop. It was great seeing everyone and getting back out on the court.

Now my body is too tired to do anything.

And the girls talked me into going to FSA’s Girl’s Night. At the end of the night we are going to crash the FSA Boy’s Night. Such partiers.

I hope your Saturday is going well.

Dinner Parties

My Guitar Professor moved our test to Friday. Which is also the day I’m having my first Vocal Solo. Which I have practiced neither. Whoops.

I should drop out of school. I’m behind in almost every class. Wonderful. Haven’t read my case that we are going over tomorrow in class. Haven’t finished coding two of my projects. Whoops.

The only things I enjoy right now are FTK, FSA, and family and friends. Everything else is just bleugh. I think I’m feeling sad because I know I’ll be leaving all this wonderfulness.

Stop thinking, Melissa. Happy thoughts only.

I had a Dinner Party at my place tonight. Spur of the moment craziness. But I think everything went well at the end. I had fun and hopefully they did too. No pictures though. I love these people. No doubt. We added more people to the group for next time and I’m a little iffy about it because some people just annoy me easily.

Andrew C. is probably reading this right now. He has damn good memory. Tonight he recited some things I’ve written. Which is scary to me. Does that mean I have to watch what I say? Shiet.

This weekend will hopefully be catch-up-with-school-weekend since no one will probably hang out with me because they are all busy. Sad life.

Ballin’

5 days straight of running around and playing sports and such. I am pooped. I am so sore. I love being sore and getting bruises and such but I’m happy sports and practices are over for the week … until Saturday comes along.

We lost by 6 points during the FSA Co-Rec Basketball Game tonight. Pretty good seeing how the team we played were all ballers. And by ballers I mean … they look like they straight came out of the NBA or WNBA.

Tomorrow’s my first test … in Guitar! bahaha We shall see how it goes because right now it sounds like a dying something since I’m so sore everywhere and tired hitting all the wrong notes. Whoops!

Long day tomorrow. But thankfully it’s hump day! I hope you all have a great one! Open-mouthed smile

I Love Kicking Balls

Actually that is false. I’m the worst soccer player ever. Just had our first FTK Co-Rec Outdoor Soccer Game. I was horrible but we won. Open-mouthed smile

Had to forfeit FSA Women’s Basketball. I’m pissed. FSA Men’s Outdoor Soccer lost. I’m pissed. FTK Men’s Outdoor Soccer lost. I’m pissed.

They did their best though so I’m not really pissed. If anything I’m proud of them. Yellow cards were thrown everywhere. Love when things get steamy between guys .. in the I-want-to-fight-you sort of way.

Speaking of steamy, it was so cold outside this guy was steaming like he was on fire because he was so hot from playing soccer. It was kind of cool.

I’ve had my workout for the past four days and it’s not over since tomorrow’s the FSA Co-Rec Basketball Game.

That means staying in school all day tomorrow. Two meetings, a letter writing campaign, and a game.

Bleugh. I just checked my schedule and I’m busy pretty much the rest of the month. Kill me now …

Hello Tuesday. I’m ready for you.
