tennis star

at school we had to do some kind of sport as an extra-curricular activity, as well as regularly playing different sports during PE classes. man. i HATED it… because i was so incredibly terrible at it. i would say things like, “i don’t see the sporty kids being forced to do art!” which obviously didn’t help anything, but as a kid i wanted to exercise my right to complain and winge. now of course i would tell my younger self, “just get on with it. one of these days you’re going to regret not getting all those sporty hours in and building your muscles when you still have the time & energy.”

the only game i was remotely good at was tennis. i actually understood it, and it’s fun to watch. cool uniforms too.

    I feel exactly the same way about school sports! & tennis is also the one game I seemed to cope with. That and Netball.
