Letting it all out
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!
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!
