For those of you who don't know, I'm a laxer. For those who don't know what that is, it's a person who plays Lacrosse--Lax--(aka, the most epic sport ever invented). Because I am a laxer, it's rare that I have much free time between my schooling, work, and practices and games. I have been super busy with Lax lately because we've had a lot of games. it's my first year actually playing the sport, though I have followed it. We haven't won any games yet. Most of our girls have never even played before. I am included in that list.
So far, I've played both the positions of low attack and defender. For being a first year player, I feel like I did a pretty good job in both positions. As attack, I took a blow to the chest from the lax ball, just so the girl on the other team wouldn't get it. mind you, those balls are NOT soft. As a defender, i finally figured out how it worked defending and not attacking towards the end of the game, and game off with some pretty good blocks. I also came off with a battle bruise. I was proud. During my last game as defender, I also dodged out of the way of a girls stick. She kept sticking it in my face after the whistle was blown for a foul, and it was really ticking me off! I was playing D, and the ball was still in their possession. The ball would not have been thrown towards me, so there was no reason to push her stick in my face. So, out of spite, and as defender, when the whistle blew I ducked under her stick and charged the girl who the ball was passed to. The best part was I made that same girl miss her shot. The look on 'miss-stick-in-my-face's' expression after was priceless. So, as you can see, I've been having a lot of fun.
School has also kept me way busy. Trying to get through math is a nightmare. Who else feels my pain? But sign language has been fantastic. I'm getting ready to do my final. For it, we have to pick a fairy tale and sign it. It also can't be a simple fairy tale, like The Three Little Pigs, either. I honestly am not sure what to choose. My thoughts are that I could pick from these fairy tales to sign:
A short story fairy tale by Robin McKinley (like The Princess and the Frog--the only problem is someone else in my class is already doing a version of that fairy tale. Any suggestions on others?)
A Brother's Grimm tale
The Swan Princess
Basically, I am struggling with what I should choose to sign, and if you can't tell, I'm hoping to hear some feedback on what you all think would be a cool story.
In other news, I've discovered a lot of new recipes to make, and I need to get them up on my blog. So for those of you who follow my blog and have joined my forum, keep a look-out for those recipes. I am also eager to try out even more recipes, so if any of you have some you think are good, feel free to share them!
