Questions – D206

9 Jan

I am at such a crossroads with this endeavor of mine. I am fairly confident they will have additional tryouts but I missed the first one and that seems like a really big deal. But what if that was it? To bad, so sad, you missed now you are out of luck.

Do I just quit? Do I keep practicing and wait till next year?

Argh… I am so pissed off at myself right now.

I can not believe I missed the tryouts! I emailed the assistant coach as indicated in the news release and asked if there would be additional opportunities to be considered for the 2013 roster. No reply yet…

Each week I peruse the Weekly Writing Challenge to see if it is relevant to what I am writing about.  Usually it is not but a few times our two worlds happen to align (see my post here).  I figured with the New Year this week’s challenge would probably be about resolutions and “stick-to-it-iveness” and it is – with a twist.

The premises of the challenge is that the world really is about to end (in three months to be exact).  With this knowledge you are to make three resolution that 1) are extremely time sensitive and 2) will be the last three things you do with your life.

On Monday I posted about kicking my diet soda habit and it has inadvertently become my New Year’s resolution.  Yet I wonder, would I really make that my resolution if the world were truly about to end?  I can think of much better things to focus my time and attention on if all that was left were three meager months.  For one thing I would spend every waking (and sleeping) moment with Husband.  Forget going to work or even being away from him for a soccer game.  No deprivation here...Unfortunately I have to earn an income, pay my mortgage, buy groceries… and well, I really like playing soccer so that nixes that as my resolution.  And two, if these were to really be my last three months, I would drink all the darn soda I could.  That stuff is tasty and I sure would not be depriving myself of anything.

But then what would my resolution(s) be?  I could make some righteous statement like I would be a better person and help those less fortunate but hey, I am not a righteous person and I would probably just hole up in the house with Husband anyway.

By process of elimination I suppose I should be making some resolutions regarding Husband…  oh but where to start?
