My Real Injury

I've been playing soccer for a fairly long time now, about 6 years with the same club. And wrestling has help me become a pretty tough person. So sadly, I publicly find it annoying when players go down on the field, can't get back up and need to be taken off the field. I mean just get back up and ask for a sub, right?! Well then I majorily jinxed myself.

I was running across the field (assumingly trying to get that ball...) and I just rolled my ankle so hard. I went down right away. I have never cried so much from getting hurt ever in my life. After many stitches a few other sport related injuries, none had ever hurt this much.

I was literally carried off the field and one of my coaches waited for a few minutes before taking all my gear off. Once it was all off, we all saw my ankle. It was the size of a tennis ball. It was the most digusting thing I had seen that I had to cover my own eyes while my coach taped it. We headed to the hospital right after the game, it seemed to go by pretty fast but I was hopped up on adrenaline with my very first real injury!

I got X-rays pretty fast and didn't have to wait too long to go back and talk to a doctor. It was a 3 out of 4 level sprain. I was given an aircast AND crutches. What scared me the most is if I go back to soccer or running too soon I will need surgery. So I'm off for about 2-3 weeks and had the last 2 days of work off. Craziness!

I'm already sick of being stuck and sitting around the house. It takes forever to move around. Thanks to Daddy for being with me at the hospital yet again! And getting me food while I was stranded at home, yummmm.

I think I have found a solution to my lack of posting on this blog: Tumblr! It's a place that I can (hopefully) update everything all at once. Here you will be able to see blog postings, pictures, twitter updates, random thoughts, etc. One of the best things I quite enjoy about this is the fact that I am now able to post just small thoughts which will be good for all of us!

This will be awesome!


Remember when I said I was going to have so much more time to post nowadays?! WRONG. Camp life has begun and if I'm not at camp all day you can find me sleeping. My day honestly consists of having fun, playing games, disciplining and getting home around 5:45 pm and sleeping til 8 or 9 having a small dinner then hitting the bed again at 10. It's the life I tell ya.

Summer has been great so far...well as great as it can be. Home is much much different from being back at my new home in Guelph. But I have been dealing. My courses are going just swimmingly! I can not even believe how well! Note to self: online courses are fabulous!

Right now I feel like technology is consuming my life! I've got my blog, twitter, facebook, phone, etc. What do any of you think of having a Tumblr account? Thoughts?!
