Soccer Season

I love soccer and lucky for me I get to to play indoor soccer each week with an awesome team called The Hawks.  I know, cool name right?  The coolness factor would make much more sense if you knew the names of the other teams in our league, ones like Rugburn, Gums and Roses, Stormy Weather...the list goes on.  A new session of indoor soccer started up this week.  We're the team in black (Hawks, black, makes sense, right?)

Anyway, while taking a breather on the sidelines, I grabbed my my phone and snapped a few pictures.  I know there not the greatest, but what's super cool about them is the blurring.  Here's why: check out the feet of the players.  Some of them are crystal clear, meaning they were not in motion...which means they were stopping during each of the steps toward the ball.  However, notice Anna, the gal bursting out in front of them.  No crystal clear feet.  Meaning she was moving and fast.  It's no wonder she was ahead of them.

Blogger's Block

I had a great post I was working on, then I decided it was too depressing so I scraped it.  Outside of that, I've had what I can only classify as Blogger's Block.  Fresh out of blogging ideas.

If I blogged about more of my personal life this wouldn't be so much of an issue, but after my blog in college where I blogged about my personal life waaaay too much, I've tried to reel it in.  My blog in college was more like my diary.  On one hand it was awesome, because now I can look back at the posts that I have saved and remember all kinds of awesome and not so awesome things.  On the other hand, I started working in social services and my mom read my college blog and told me it was too personal for my professional career.  She has a point if any of my clients found my old site they could have crossed some serious personal boundaries.  So I shut my old site down and started this one.

But where is the line?  I could use the rule of thumb that I only blog about things I would be comfortable talking to my clients about - but then that would lead me to where we currently are, which is a rather impersonal blog.  Hmm.

Maybe I should ask myself this...what's the purpose of my blog?  To share my life with my friends?  To bring tech goodness to my friends?  I think this maybe the real source of my problem...a blog without a purpose.

Good blog therapy session.  Thanks.

Oh.  Let me know your thoughts on this...I'm curious and impressionable about where to go with my blog.
