so, it’s 2:17am here on the east coast. i feel asleep earlier during the thunder vs. nuggets game [sorry kd. but i heard you went off for 44 pts. nice] and am now paying for it. i’m having one of those nights where i feel like pouring all my thoughts out into my blog. i rarely post anything ‘personal’ [although what ‘personal’ on a blog?] on my public blogs anymore. so this is when i’d usually go to my private blog to do that but for once, i felt like putting myself out there. but that also assumes that anyone still reads this blog anymore.
much of my time lately has been spent on basketball. bulls basketball, to be precise. i’ll keep it real, i didn’t pay a whole lot of attention during the MJ glory years [blasphemy, i know]. i mostly just remember my sister screaming at the tv a lot and my dad and sister gettin’ real hyped up during games. perhaps i was too young to really grasp what was going on. who knows. regardless, it hasn’t been until he last two years or so, that bulls basketball has taken hold of a large chunk of my attention and i haven’t been able to let go since.
i really love this current bulls team, which i think i may have to devote another blog post too because, for real, i just love them so goddamn much. i really, really do. and i think i would do just about anything to get within 20 feet of them again. having been that close this past wednesday because of ridiculously awesome seats my sister was able to get to the bulls vs. wizards game at the verizon center, it was just……amazing. something about being able to see basketball being played that up close, being in the bulls’ players presence while they were doing shootaround, i can’t explain it. i know it sounds incredibly insane and probably makes me sound like a crazy stalker person but, seriously. it was phenomenal and i loved every moment of it.
so i’ve been thinking. maybe this is a potential career path i want to take. working in the realm of nba basketball, particularly the bulls organization. i have to think that something that i’ve spent hundreds of dollars on [game tickets, merchandise, etc] and a large amount of time on [going to/watching games, reading blogs, etc] has got to be more than just a passing interest, right?
a lot of time, i have a hard time distinguishing between what is just an obsessive hobby as opposed to something i’m obsessed over but could be a potential career. like, okay, my love for kpop? probably more of a slightly obsessive interest than anything i could turn into any semblance of a real career. probably.
but basketball? i dunno man. i think this is something i could seriously pursue. who knows? this could all end in disaster and/or leading nowhere at all. but i feel like this is something i at the very least need to go after and see what happens because i know i’d regret it if i didn’t. i’m young, why not? i’d like to think that if i can at least get my foot in the door [i’mma make it happen], i can work my way up and we’ll see what happens from there. right?
