“There are times where I wish people would understand that Ultimate frisbee is more than just running around catching and throwing a flying disc, but that it’s a culture, a lifestyle. The love/hate relationship, the camaraderie throughout the sport, tournament parties, and simply the little things such as dry socks, tournament food, and the extra hour of sleep from when your team has a bye make ultimate such a joy to be a part of. No words can ever express the experience of playing. At the end of the weekend, after hours upon hours and game after game of playing, after throwing your body countless times to the ground to catch a disc, after playing through rain and wind, after playing anywhere from freezing cold to three digit degree weather, after pain and soreness, all you can do is smile. When Monday rolls around and people ask you what you did, all you can answer with is I played in a frisbee tournament because they won’t understand what we actually did that weekend.”

like you’re either on top of the world,
or under it."
From now on Im going to speak like an anime protagonist giving an inspirational speech, because….. *clenches fist* because there are people who believe in me! People who are constantly giving me strength! And even if they’re not with me right now…. *faint smile at the ground*…. They’re always sending me their wishes a-and I want to be able to give them courage too!!!!
