Dear Blake,

Most likely those guys you saw on the field yesterday were on the team. They're almost always on that field practicing, probably why they seem really good. I wouldn't worry though. If coach thought that you should get a scholarship to our "rich-kid" school just to play lacrosse, it means that you're good. We have a surplus of guys trying out for the team every year, so unless you're amazing, the coach wouldn't ask you to join the team.

No, I don't participate in sports at school, at least not any more. I used to play basketball though. Now I run the stage crew for our school's shows and productions. Anything that goes on that stage, has me behind the scenes, telling people what to do. It's a bit stressful, but I love my job.

My favorite genre of music would probably be pop, although I'll admit: I can't resist a good rock and roll tune. I was never allowed to listen to rock and roll or metal or rap (technically I'm still not allowed to). I'm supposed to be the perfect daughter who listens to the perfect music... Yeah right.

I know that you're telling me to rethink my decision about moving to the city. For some reason, I respect you so I did. My answer is still the same. I just need to leave this small town life and go somewhere bigger, somewhere where I can be more than a stay at home mother of four children whose husband expects her to have dinner on the table at the exact moment he gets home. No way, that's not who I am. I'm meant to be living somewhere exciting. Somewhere where you can bend the rules and be an outstanding individual. Defiantly not this little town.

I've come to realize that I don't know much about you. Please, tell me some things about you.

Peace, Love and Happiness,
