Welcome to Life of a Blogger, a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeats! This is where you get the chance to know the blogger behind the blog, aka: What we do when we’re not blogging! Every week there will be a new topic; mainly non-bookish, where I’ll share a little bit of life with you guys (:
This week’s topic is: SPORTS (that I play(ed))
So as a kid, I was a pretty sporty – I tried and played a lot of different sports. Volleyball is still probably my most favourite to play!
I think my first sports club that I actually did was soccer when I was 8. My best friend’s dad was the coach and I played with a lot of the neighbourhood kids. I loved soccer so much than, and I was a pretty decent defense-man, haha. I joined my elementary school volleyball team (I was actually quite good, considering how short I am, muaahah), basketball team, and track and field, too. Oh I learned to skate too, because living in Canada, you gotta know how to skate.
In high school, I stuck with volleyball and track and field, though I was terrible with long distance (seriously, I had terrible endurance! Which I actually found out only recently was probably due to a heart murmur I have, that I didn’t know about. Strange huh!) I learned to curl* too and played on the girl’s curling team!
*Curling: the Canadian winter sport that involves throwing a heavy rock down a sheet of ice, and sweeping. And yelling.
In Uni, I somehow ended up doing a lot of campus rec sports (which was good, because I needed a reason to exercise, haha). I somehow go roped into Ultimate Frisbee, which was alwaaaays so tiring for me because somehow there was only ever like 2 girls playing and since it was a co-rec, there always need to be 2 girls on the field :/). And of course, my co-rec volleyball, and one time I did basketball, too. Oh and a few years of curling. One year, our curling team actually won the B League (there was A – which was the best, B – for the middling, and C – for the easiest)! We got sweet neon green champion t-shirts (:
Other random sports that I’ve tried: hockey, badminton, frolf (Frisbee golf), surfing, others I can’t think of?
So if you haven’t guessed by now, I really like sports! And I’m always willing to try out a new one.
How about you guys! Do you like playing sports? What’s your favourite sport to play? Ones you wanna try?
