Almost completely moved in! Its been a struggle with 2 jobs and almost no help but it will soon be over! Moving from a second story apartment into a third story 15 minutes away has been quite the hassle! I’m hiring movers next time.
One thing Alex and I discussed was that we didn’t want to ruin our friendship by moving in together but things have been super awkward between us lately. Luckily, we got to bond during a trip to IKEA but things quickly fizzled when we got back home. I hope after we’re settled and less stressed things will get better.
As I stayed back in Austin, my team went to Houston to play for a bid to the national 7s championship. They lost in overtime to the only team that stood in our way, marking the end of our 7s season.
I am so happy and glad that I decided to play. Yup, the sprinting sucked. So did the 5 game tournaments in the middle of the hottest part of the day in Texas. But I KNOW I am a better rugby player because of it. I learned how plays develop. I got better on defense. I played positions as a forward and learned how to Hook and Prop. I saw holes while on offense. I am better at ball handling and am more confident about crashing into bitches.
I am so ready for 15s!!
"For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with, but I think, even then I knew, I was waiting for my wife."
Waiting for my Jim.
Austin Knights dominate and place 1st in the Parrothead 7s Rugby Tournament in Tulsa, OK. I’m honored to be able to share the field with such an incredible group of women. #rugbylife
Played in my first 7s game and tournament this weekend! Not too bad! Although, I did play on the Social side so it wasnt that competitive. But I survived! My first game I played every minute…except the LAST minute! URRGHH! I almost lasted a whole game but had to be carried off the field because I got injured in a ruck when some 200lb girl landed on my calf with her knee!
I also broke my finger on my first tackle off the game! It was disgusting and was curved into a ‘S.’ I was lucky to have my team’s trainer playing next to me on the pitch. She popped that baby back into place right then and there. It made it difficult SO to scrum. I was put in as Hooker for the first game and couldnt bind to my own team because of my broken finger. The Sir grabbed my injured hand and placed it in the correct spot. I almost punched that mrthrfrckrr in the faaaaaccee! OMG, it hurt so bad. So I had to bind to a Prop with a pinky finger. First time Hooking and Propping this weekend, too. I won a few scrums!!
All in all, the tournament was a great experience and I’m really glad I’m playing 7s.
Went to Top Golf with the wifey yesterday. We played about 5 games and I woke up super sore. I feel old. But I dominated!! And I actually hit it out to the blue target, which is the third farthest target, maybe 150 yds? No, but really, why am I super sore? Gotta get better! I have my first 7s tournament this weekend!
