I Love: Learning

Mar. 16, 2014

I have very few memories of preschool. I remember vividly the mushroom cut my mother inflicted upon me(…one day before picture day). I remember the little poem we had to recite before we could eat at snack time (duh…if it’s standing between me and my graham crackers, imma remember it).

And I remember making “number rolls.” You started off by writing 1,2,3 on a really long strip of large grid paper. Then in the next row down you wrote 1, 2, 3 again – until you reached the end of the roll. You then graduated to a bigger number roll where you wrote 1,2,3,4…over and over again. Then 1,2,3,4,5 and so on…

I Love: Soccer

Mar. 5, 2014 I love soccer.

Always have.

Not in the “I like it more than school and less than partying” kind of way. But in the “wow this is a really hauntingly perceptive love song, it totally describes how I feel about soccer right now” kind of way.

This is not an easy confession to make. First, because there are a lot of activities that I am naturally better suited to do. And second, because when I was growing up, no one really wanted to hear this. Mostly – I think – because adults are terrified that if a kid deviates from what’s “normal,” he/she will drop out of school and a become crack addict.

Hi!  Welcome to my blog!

My name is Adelaide – Ade if abbreviation is your thing. A if you’re into extreme abbreviation. I play a lot of soccer. Goalkeeper mostly – except when I'm leading my pick up teams to victory. I’ve done some cool stuff. But all you really need to know is that I love soccer and people who love what they do.

So why write a blog?
