Well I just got back from Lake Erie yesterday (Sunday). We, as in the tennis team, went and stayed up there for the weekend. We played two matches. Both of which I lost. It’s all good though. I am learning a lot about how I play…which is better than just breezing through a match if you ask me. I mean sure, I would love to have a better record than I do. But I think if I was just winning all of my matches, I wouldn’t stop and think about how I am playing. So in that sense, it’s a good thing.
We woke up Sunday morning and there was a foot of snow on the ground. That was depressing. I really hate snow. It was around 60 all last week, and to wake up on a Sunday and see a foot of snow was very unsatisfying…if that is even a word.
So we drove for four hours, and the farther south we went, the less snow that could be seen. That’s a weird sentence. Read that again, and let me know if it is right. Anyway, by the time we got to Frostburg, it was around 55 degrees and sunny! I was so happy. I never thought that I woudl want to be back in Frostburg so bad in my life.
Tomorrow (today since it’s 2:30 in the morning, and I am up writing instead of resting for a match) we play Juniata. I think I have a chance to win. I think it’s too late in the season to even have a winning record at this point. But, oh well. It’s been satisfying for my game thus far.
I hope you all are having a great life. Only a few more weeks of this semester to go. Isn’t that weird to think about?!!
P.S. Did you know that ?!! is called an interrobang? I learned that in English the other day. Go tell your grandparents, or your one friend that thinks he or she knows everything…but don’t be thinking about it in your head first. If you are going to say it just say it…because you don’t want to forget what you are thinking. You’ll end up thinking, “Hey maybe I have something to say in this conversation…I’ll tell them what an interrobang is.” Then, start thinking, “They will think I am really smart,” and by that time you have started congratulating yourself too soon, and because you did that, you completely forgot what you were going to say in the first place.
Then he or she that thinks he or she knows everything turns to you and says, “Anyway, what were you saying?” But because you forgot what you were thinking because you started congratulating yourself too soon, you just say any random thing.
“Uh…six to one, half a dozen of the other!”
“It’s a slippery slope my friend…!”
“Teach a man to fish, and uh, there’s no I in team!”
