Rugby Banquet '08

Today was our end of the year banquet for rugby.  We had lunch at Garden and voted for officers and captains.  It was good to see everyone - I was ridiculously hung over and probably would have had a lot more fun if I wasn't feeling so ... bleh.  

I won an award - Best Serendipity Dress.  I was really excited, I did think my Serendipity dress was pretty amazingly 80s ;-)  Also, our team gave Em this really awesome hat that they got made, it's a UNCG Women's Rugby hat, and it says "COACH" on the back.  It's really sweet, and Em looks really cute in it!  We'll have to get a picture of that up at some point.

I also was voted co-captain again for the year next year, along with Tank.  I'm really hoping to improve a lot about our team.  This year has been really rough for me.  Being the unofficial captain for so long, on and off, was this roller coaster ride of emotions for me, for a lot of reasons.  It's all very complicated, of course, with many different factors affecting what happened over the last two years with me and the team.  I really hope to be a better captain this fall, because I know that I'm not doing as much as I used to do.  Sometimes it's just so hard that I feel that I can't even explain how deep, painful, and complex my feelings are about my rugby team, certain members, and how some things have gone down in the past.

Not much else is going on this weekend.  I have one paper due Tuesday, and one final on Tuesday, so I guess I'll be working on that and relaxing.  The weather is beautiful here, so hopefully we'll be spending some time outside.  I can't wait to go home next weekend, I miss my mommy and sis.  

Be safe this weekend,
