The last two field hockey games have been amazing for me! I'm not one to brag, but I definitely think that I've gotten better. Everyone on the team says I do a good job, I love getting the compliments, but I'm just so hard on myself I wonder if they're just saying it to say it or if it's actually true. I've left the comfort of defending my circle and goal and have been pushing up to a defense/mid position. It's strange because I kind of don't know how to act once I cross the 50, but I like it. I almost scored last week, but was just outside the circle (darn it), but in my defense the lines were poorly painted on the field. And this week, I redeemed myself!! Scored on a corner in the first half! :) I'm so proud of myself. I still think I prefer to defend over playing offense, but just because that's what I'm comfortable with. It sucks because I only have two more games of outdoor and then it's back to indoor in September. And while I love indoor, I think I'm better outdoor because I love to drive the ball and I know I'm good at that, but you can't do that indoors. As long as I get to play, though, I'm a happy girl.
