The Decider

State of Origin 2004. Match 3. Here I am, embedded deep in enemy territory. 200 km or so from the safety of the Queensland border. But do I shrink, do I retreat, do I turn a traitorous back on the maroon? Hell no!
This is me at work in NSW, blue country, today. Urgh, tough guy.

Last Friday night I went for a full body massage. Not bad. I've never had one before and thought it would loosen me up since I've been feeling a little sore in the muscles lately. They said I'd be sore for a few days because of the toxins the massage would release from the muscles, but by Monday or Tuesday I'd be feeling great.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but a massage is supposed to loosen your muscles and do good things for you. Last night (Tuesday) I went to Aussie Rules training to have a run-around. I warmed up before stretching, stretched everything as much or more than normal, had another warmup lap... did everything right, or so I thought. You can imagine I was more than a little surprised when my hamstring tweaked. I still ran it out the rest of training, but am annoyed I'm limping now. Thanks for nothing massage dude. It may temper my celebrations - jumping up and down when Queensland win tonight. If not, I could just straight out snap it and leave myself immobilised, one of the two.

University results came back this week. I technically should have failed two subjects and should be grateful I passed. Of course I am, but continue to wonder what could have been. So I will begin another semester in three weeks vowing to do more work than the last. I've done that after each of the last three semesters, and instead have watched my GPA drop from 6.25, to 5.25 and now to 4.75 (out of 7 for those unfamiliar with the system).

For now, however, I'll just get back to work. Honesty of purpose and deed. I don't know why that just came into my mind, but it's something I need to focus on more...
