The End of Something Important

Friday was the last game of my college soccer career. And it was awesome. Haha.

It really was, though. It was the best possible game I could have ended on. We played a difficult team that had beat us earlier this season, and we came out on top. We all played hard. I almost scored!! Gah... My left-footed shot hit the crossbar; just a few inches lower and it would have been a goal. I still have a ball print on the inside of my knee, which is pretty crazy. I believe that may have been the hardest I've ever played. Well, one of the times I've played that hard. Technically that's not a good thing; it means I haven't been playing to the fullest of my ability all the time. I know in reality that no one does, but you understand what I'm saying. I don't think it's that, though. It was just one of those tough games. And it was my last. I had to go out in the best way possible.

At one point I considered making a list of things I've learned from college soccer. Maybe I will. Right now I don't have the desire to get into thinking that much. There are plenty of other things on my mind, like schoolwork and grad school applications - things I should have more time to work on now that I don't have soccer to worry about.

I think the weirdest thing will be next semester, when soccer won't exist for me. I believe that will be when I just won't know what to do with myself.
