Yeah, I know most 25 year olds would stay up this late on the weekends, but I don’t usually. I’m a morning person and an extrovert. So that means, I’m wide awake in the mornings, ready to tackle the world. Then by 9 o’clock I’m dead tired and ready to go to bed unless I’m with a group of people. People give me energy.
Tonight I watched and participated in a dodgeball tournament that the youth group at my church hosted. I like to think that I’m a positive influence, and since I’m a kid-at-heart, I still love doing the activities they do, such as a dodgeball tournament. Anyways, I had to share this EPIC game that went down during the tournament.
Let me give you a bit of info on the set-up. The youth minister required that everyone be on a team. If you didn’t want to play, you could just let yourself get hit and get out. As you can imagine, there were quite a few girls that didn’t really want to play, so often they would stand in the back and not do much. One girl talked and talked about how she wasn’t going to play, and couldn’t wait to get out. Well, as the games progressed, I see her actively playing, and competitiveness coming out. And during a certain game, she was one of the last standing, the other team being down to one person…..another girl who had just stood in the corner the whole time where no one noticed. So the first girl has been playing hard, one of the last ones as well and dodging left and right, getting the good players out. It’s one on one now, and the second girl is still standing in the corner, distracted even. The first girl lobs a ball at her, and the second happens to turn and simply catch it!! I should have yelled:
OH! Plot Twist!!
But I didn’t. Still, no one saw it coming and it was awesome. The first girl was pretty mad, but she got over it. Once the champions were crowned, they had to play the adult team. I played on the team, and we had expected our team to humble these new champions. But that didn’t work out so well…
All in all, it was a great night of fun and really helped me not think about the Charlie saga as much. He’s at a Euro garage to get checked out. But I learned today in this book I’m reading how staying busy can really help you forget worries, and I would have to say, after tonight I agree!
So I guess I’ll share some advice for tonight. If you’re worried, go get busy. Do something that takes thinking power, not allowing you to dwell on those worries. You might find them disappear or figure themselves out.
That’s all for tonight/this morning folks! More later!
