Last episode: Rise Up Diaries ~ weekend roundup
Today was a rather uneventful day. I have mostly been reading and sleeping in the sun. I do get a tan very easy but to be honest I have spent most of my time inside so for this year. Sweden haven’t had a very good summer in accord to weather. And with my chronic pain I get pain easy from being in the cold. So even if it’s just a little bit chilly it gets to me and I tense enough to make it difficult for me.
I might also be a bit of a wuss when it comes to cold weather. But today the sun was out enough for me to even enjoy it. So I decided to take my chance and stay in the warm sun for a bit and read.
Later during the day my dad came to me and asked if I wanted to go on a football game. Anyone who knows me know I hate football. My both brothers was in teams when we were kids and that meant a lot of games which I had to go an watch. Wasn’t a lot of fun for me if I shall be super honest. Some games I did go to on my own because I was offered candy but I do remember them all being extremely slow and boring. Recently I don’t mind football. I don’t know if its because my British boyfriend is a huge fan and also a former pro player himself or if I just is more open now.
I myself prefer and probably always will prefer hockey. When I told my boyfriend this he didn’t understand why. I later on understood it was because England suck at hockey and he haven’t seen or been to a really good game. It probably is like that with everything. You cant judge something until you have experienced it for real.
But when my dad came to me with this question I have him a very hesitant “i don’t know”. Later on I heard him call my brother asking if he also wanted to go and if he was going to book a ticket for him as well because even I was going. I didn’t say anything and thought “hey! I might get a hot-dog and its nice weather so some more sun wouldn’t hurt”.
Mom made a lovely dinner for us before we went to the game. It was a self smoked char.
When we got to the game both side of the teams cheering fan (with drums and everything) was quite. I later found out they was making a protest against the police violence etc by having 20 min of quite. Which I found very respectable. After those 20 min was done the other team light up huge fires and I felt a rather disappointment. I’m happy it wasn’t from the team we cheered on.
The game was rather slow and ended 1-1. My brother, who is an educated football judge and my parents who is extreme fans would probably have more to say. And maybe so would I if it been hockey and I knew more about the sport xD
17th August the hockey season starts and I’m reconsidering getting a season card. After moving away 5 years ago I haven’t seen one game from my favorite hockey team and it been heartbreaking having to watch the score online (they aren’t so good they are on the TV yet). Sitting home with all my support clothes, tea mugs and hats cheering them on from afar.
Maybe I can do a proper introduction to my love for hockey, how it started, what teams I enjoy etc. I have many nice memories with hockey and I love talking about them a lot.
I hope your Monday have been just as nice as mine.
Did you do anything fun?
What is you favorite sport to watch and do you have a special team in your heart?
