Letting it all out
Quidditch World Cup
There were a lot of things that happened, we got screwed by a bad call, made a lot of friends (and maybe one or two rivals/ sort of enemies?) but one thing I noticed which made me very sad was that NO ONE HAD CAPES. Except us. We were the only College team with Capes. What is the World coming to? I think there was one High School team with Capes. But that was it.

I wanted it to last forever!
The Quidditch Worl Cup!!
It’s been a while tumblr. I think every other post of mine starts off with how I’ve been neglecting you. I always come back for more though, so that counts for something right! Right?
There’s a lot of stuff to write about that has happened to me since I last posted, but today I only want to talk about one thing. Quidditch! I’m off to the Quidditch World Cup in just about 5 hours. It has been a dream come true. Especially when I didn’t make the Football (Soccer) team. I know ‘Muggle’ Quidditch existed and I always wanted to play, but I assumed that once I made the football team I wouldn’t have time for anything else. I guess fate had other plans for me and I couldn’t be happier. Syracuse Quidditch is Awesome! I don’t even have to change position! I’m still a Keeper (and I think I will always be one!)
Since I was I child I always dreamed of playing at a World Cup. Winning it. I always believed I could. As I grew I started to realize that the level of skill, talent and dedication to achieve this in a sport like Football was way too much for me to handle. I liked doing other things! Not just training 24/7 for 18 to 20 years in the hopes of one playing at the FIFA World Cup.
Now I get a chance to do it. And we actually have an ok to pretty good chance of winning Division 2! Yes it’s not Division 1. But I’m not that disappointed. Division Quidditch teams are mental; they train 7-8 times a week. I can’t and don’t want to do that. We’re playing Quidditch, it should be fun! I can’t wait for it to start! I feel like I’m going to explode while waiting. I think I’ve mentioned this before but I hate waiting! Once the match or event starts I’m calm. Getting to the start of said even or match is EXCRUCIATING.
Right, I have to go a ton of things before I leave, but I couldn’t leave without writing something about this. Even if we don’t win, spending time with my awesome team mates and being on an Island with about 5-8000 Harry Potter fans is going to be one of the best experiences of my life!
Goodbye Dubai! I’ll Be Back!!
Well this is it. I’m leaving for America and eventually college, in 3 hours and 45 minutes. A 16 hours (at least) flight nonstop from Dubai to San Francisco to visit family. Then in 2 weeks I’ll back up to New York and Syracuse. I’m finding it hard to describe what I’m feeling right now. What do you feel when after 19 years of your life you leave the place where you grew up in, the friends you love, the people you’ve grown attached to? I don’t know. I know I’ll be back in December for the Winter break and I know I’ll see them all again. It’s just weird. Don’t get me wrong I can’t wait for College to start but it’s with mixed emotions that I leave. I think it’s because once I get off the plane I’ll be taking another step towards becoming an adult and really, who wants to be an adult?
See you in 20 hours or so Tumblr!
Deathly Hallows 2-again
Taking my Sister to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 today, it’ll be her first time. My 5th. Wonder if I’ll cry, heck I wonder if she’ll cry. Its just such a good movie. *spoiler warning, but really if you don’t know this, what planet do you live on?* Snape holding Lilly’s body gets me ever time.
Got my Room assignments from Syracuse today! I shall be in Day Hall on the 4th floor. In an Open Double Room (Still waiting to hear back from my Roommate). I can’t wait for everything to start! I’ve been waiting for this for a while now since my last internship (almost 2-3months ago now).
Apparently Day Hall is located on Mount Olympus Drive (that’s right my postal address contains Mount Olympus in it, Bad Ass I know! :D) which is basically a giant hill. More than 120 stairs to the top, that part is going to be fun XD Should give my legs that little extra workout that I won’t be getting from Soccer (assuming I make it).
Blimey I’m going to be there in less than a month! Hurry Up time!!
Today is the day I find out who my first college room mate is. Just waiting for Syracuse to send me the email. Stupid 8 hour time difference between Dubai and New York. Not expecting it before 10pm my time. Move Faster Time!
I love this song. For someone who has not a shred of musical talent in his body I find it amazing that people can create such original (and awesome) things. Its on replay as we speak.
I cannot wait till I am 3,868km/2,403 miles away from my asshole of a younger brother
Going to watch Deathly Hallows 2 again today, for the 3rd time. I’m probably going to cry again, good thing I’m going with all my guy friends this time. You know what though? Who cares. I’ll cry if I want to. BRING ON THE POTTER GOODNESS!!
