It wasn’t until the Giants won their first World Series that I became a fan. Jumping on the bandwagon some might say but I worked right by the parade route and seeing all these fans be so excited about their team winning was electrifying. During the playoffs the city was united. I started going to games and rooting for them in 2011 which wasn’t a great year for them. I stuck by and in 2012 they won again. I’ve been hooked.
I like the fact that I get to know the players and the camaraderie between them. Perhaps it’s the fact they play so many games during the season that you get to see different players shine. You can have the greatest player on your team but if he doesn’t work well with others, then you don’t have a team. Going to the stadium is also fun. Being around hard core fans is an experience all on it’s own.
I also like that going to games and rooting for the Giants is something my mom and I do. It’s something special that we share. We are building memories.
like all your friends go out and do things and get into relationships and like people that like them back and have fun and do stupid things with their best friends and instead of doing all that you’re just sort of this mildly entertaining thing that people take an interest in once in a while but they wouldn’t really care if it was gone
like you just sort of exist but you don’t really mean anything
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.”—Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged (via anotherunkindness)
“Try to live your life in a way that you will not regret years of useless virtue, and inertia, and timidity. Take up the battle. Take it up! It’s yours. This is your life. This is your world.”—Maya Angelou (via alxkhrtn)
1. No matter how long it takes, and how beaten down you are, refuse to give in, or to relinquish your dream. Just get up one more time and then decide to try again.
2. We all slip up, and encounter obstacles. Just determine to keep going, and to get on track again. It doesn’t mean it’s over. It’s all part of the course.
3. We all need support and encouragement in life – so eliminate the negative, or toxic, influences. You don’t need those people who are quick to criticise, and don’t really help you to move closer to your dream.
4. Surround yourself with people who are similar to you, who have the same ambitions, outlooks and points of view. They’ll help to spur you onwards, and provide support you need.
5. Be inspired by other people who overcame defeat … who built a life from nothing … or turned their life around. Learn from their perseverance, and their will to succeed.
6. Imagine how you’ll feel when you’ve reached the goal you’ve set. Try and picture what you’ll look like, and how your life will be.
