This whole situation with Al Bann has gotten me thinking about women’s soccer in the US.
It’s pretty obvious that the players themselves are not lacking in ability or underperforming in a way that would cause them to go unnoticed. They’re rather consistently the best in the world. I think the problem comes down to the fans. It’s like the sport can’t be taken seriously until the fan base can be taken seriously. And right now, it can’t be. The team has a huge following, yes, but a good percentage of those fans aren’t fans of the sport itself, but fans of the team. Fans of the players, fans of the friendships, fans of the celebrity status. And I’m not knocking those fans, because I’m a fan of all of those aspects as well. But at the end of the day, the team is going to change, the players will be replaced, and all that will remain constant is the sport. Women’s soccer. So be a fan of the game. Support women’s soccer for the love of the sport, and be glad that the love of these amazing players comes as an added bonus.
tl;dr - while it’s completely fine to be a fangirl (i’m one too), try to remember why we’re all really here (it rhymes with locker…or sootball)
Finally some rest. Hopefully tomorrow too. I’m done my banner type of thing for my story. I’ve only shown one person. Don’t know if you guys wanna see it. Hopefully I’m confident enough to share this story with you all. It’s about 12:30 now and I should get some sleep before I just sleep right here. I’m off. I love you all. Goodnight.
I’m really stressed out and I can’t deal with all this BS right now. Too much drama, too much school, too much homework to catch up on. My grades are shit and my mom might murder me when I get my report card. I’m seriously beginning to lose all the confidence I’ve been trying to build up to survive high school but it seems like no matter what I do, it’s never right. I know I’m always saying how people should appreciate things in live and blah, blah, blah but it looks like I can’t even follow my own advice. And since I’m not Tumblr famous and my followers hate me, nobody will even care enough to read this….which is cool. Go about your lives. But know this; if you even find yourself in a situation like mine, please come talk to me. Maybe we can help each other. You never know. I’m not a bad person. I’m really nice, I don’t judge, I talk to everyone and I love everyone. I’m beginning to be a little bit of a people person and I’m a sucker about nature. I may walk with confidence but in truth I’m a very lonely feeling person at heart. I just..have a lot of feelings, okay? I guess that’s it…sooo..yeah.
