Fun at Work

If you actually care about me and this blog at all, you'll have noticed that I haven't posted anything in about forever. I have just been super bogged down with life and school and work and the future and people in general. But I'm still alive! And I still have no time to write a whole big post so I will leave you with pictures of what I do when I'm bored at work.

Absolutely Smashing

I'm super pumped therefore I will make a blog post about it. The thing that is making me pumped is the fact that I made my school badminton team!

Badminton is one of my favourite sports because, for one, I'm actually good at it and also the fact that it is both mental and physical just rocks my socks. You have to be good at delivering the power shots and everything but you also have to play with the other person's mind like knowing their patterns and intentionally messing them up as well as just taking forever to serve to psych them out.

My official position is Senoir Girls Singles which means I get the court all to myself which is the way I like it. I'm not one for sharing the birdie with someone else. I like singles so much more than doubles because:
1) There is a lot more running around and that is one of my favourite things to do
2) You can only disappoint yourself, there's no partner to get annoyed at for missing a shot and vice versa you don't feel guilty for messing up the game for your teammate
3) You get all the glory (Only slightly kidding)
4) You can beat people by moving them around the court it doesn't have to be smash after smash to win

Of course, I am in no way saying I am The Badminton Queen. I'm good enough to make the team when only 4 people got cut and I can beat people that are better than me because I am sometimes determined enough to return every shot they make but I only play at school, not outside of it competitively like a whole whack of the people in tournaments do.

 No matter what, I love the sport (and yes it's a sport we can get into this discussion later) and would rather lose horribly every time than never be able to play again.

The tournament that counts was on April 2! I trained hard, played hard and crashed hard when I got home, of course. I didn't move on, which is what I expected but I did attain my goal, which was to win more than I lost. I won all of 3 games and only lost 2! I think that puts me up to the quarter finals which is not too bad. I sure am feeling the soreness now!

That last paragraph had a plethora of exclamation marks, but I don't really care!
Definitely me.

Poll Results: March

Totally the lamest poll to date. My question was Do You Like Polls? and obviously the only people who voted on a poll were the ones who liked them. But maybe they were just being nice. All 4 of them.

First totally unanimous answer so party hats for everyone and let's celebrate!

Right now I'm contemplating this month's poll but I don't know what direction to go towards. Should I be really random? Should I go straightforward? Why don't you comment on what you want next month's poll to me so that I can do what my "audience" wants instead of what my brain randomly decides!

As for April, it's when vegetation is starting to grow again so why not figure out what everyone's favourite tree is!

Go forth and vote!
