Things I want to accomplish in my life and record through this blog!

A. Be more creative - writing, crafts, music, whatever, I get zero creativity in my job so I need to keep that side of my brain active!

B. Be more organized - my apartment, schedule, life, I never feel like I am quite on top of everything and always surrounded by clutter.

C. Be happier - there's always room to improve happiness, right?

D. Read more - I have a ridiculous pile of to-read books, and I still want to create a pandora for books...

I think this is a good way to move forward with the blog, lets see how it goes!

I suck at blogging

It's been about three weeks since I've posted anything.  If I do post stuff its usually weeks late.  I'm just not as interested in writing about this stuff as I thought I was.  I will probably try something new, maybe challenge myself to just write everyday, or only write about something I took a picture of.  I'm just not sure what direction to take this.  I want to be more creative but I'm not sure this blog is helping me do that.

I guess I'll have to plan something...of course for me saying I'll plan something just means I'll put it off longer.  Oh well, we'll see where this goes.

Summertime = international soccer.  Time to root for the USMNT and USWNT!  It starts with the CONCACAF Gold Cup and goes through the Women's World Cup.  Both of our national tams have been playing warm up games leading to these two tournaments.  I like to think that my super awesome goal this weekend (snuck it in between the goalie and the near post!) was inspired by all the soccer I've been watching. 
USMNT take on Canada tonight in the first of three group games.  They had a poor showing in a friendly against Spain last weekend so the fans will definitely be looking for more.  Hopefully the starting lineup will include many veteran players (that didn't happen on Saturday).  I'm expecting a typical 4-4-2, but would love for Bradley to change it up a little, maybe a 4-5-1?

Can't wait, 50 minutes until kick-off! GO USA!
