Hello world! Ha ha jk this is my first attempt at blogging, so bear w/ me. I've often thought about having one, just haven't ever gotten around to it...until now. I think it will be pretty fun though, plus it will give me another outlet to express my thoughts/feelings, so yeah here we go!
I just got back from the big game in Provo between San Diego State and BYU and man was it awesome! Our seats were clear up at the top, but I didn't care. I was just glad to be there! It was a packed house, as this was a match-up between the #5 and #9 teams in the nation and it lived up to the hype, as did Jimmer Fredette. He is amazing and scored 43 points! The crowd was intense the entire game and I could only imagine how incredible that must have felt to be one of the players out on the court, especially a BYU player. I would absolutely LOVE to be in their shoes; the crowd roaring, chanting your name, cheering your team on on every possession. Man that would be amazing and a dream come true for me. It's not an impossible dream, I just have a long road ahead of me. All I need to do is put forth the effort: a lot of it at that, but it is achievable.
The basketball court is the only place where I feel a sense of ease and comfort; I can just let loose and totally be comfortable. I don't think about anything, any problems I might have or trials I might be going through, they all go out the window when I'm out playing. My mind is clear, free from all distractions. I don't know why that is, but that's just how it is. If I'm playing in a tournament or a big game, the crowd might be going crazy or some fans might be heckling me, but I don't notice while I'm playing. I don't notice any of those things. The only thing I pay attention to is the game and my teammates. That's it. I almost take on a new personality when I'm out there. I'm vocal, confident, worry-free and not nervous at all, which is a stark contrast from my every day life. Why? I have no idea. Maybe it's because basketball is what comes natural for me, I don't have to think twice about it. Yet all other aspects of my life, I'm a worrier, I get nervous a lot and don't have a ton of confidence. These are things to work on though.
Anyway sorry, I've written a novel here. Expect more from me in the upcoming blogs though, because this is a great outlet to voice what I'm thinking. Thanks for reading and I'll quit blabbing...for now :)
