its a grandslam! we first won in the championship games in basketball last week and then this week, we had our semifinals in volleyball and just Saturday was the championship and we won too! woohoo! and to think that our team is just a guest team, an invited team to participate in the sportsfest of the host agency. they are probably so annoyed that the guest team took the grandslam and they weren't able to defend their home court! i actually can't believe that we became the champion in volleyball because as most of you know, we've suffered consecutive losses. when we played in the wildcard game, we won and that became our ticket to the quarterfinals. after our bad luck, the God of luck favored us in the succeeding games and won straight games. and in the finals, yesterday, we were so nervous. the other team won the first match. we were so relieved to won the second set and finally the third set. but it was really a close fight. the score for the final set was 25-23. whew! we're gonna have our celebration tonight, a swimming pool party. i'm just so excited because this will be my chance to get closer to my crush!

i'm happy alright. but i felt i didn't put much efforts on it. i missed two of our games, during the quarterfinals because i was on a training then. and during the finals, i wasn't able to play in the last set because i had a slight injury on my elbow when me and one of my teammates accidentally bumped into each other while hitting the ball and she fell on me. i grazed my elbow on the rough ground. ouch. that was the second time she fell on me. ^__^;;

Looks like she's the spoiler of the game but luckily u r team still manage to win the game and be champions.. hehe ^_^ And maybe it's due to the extra trainings and rest, that gives your team extra advantage to win the game and tournament too!! ^_^

no she's not. she's actually good kun. but accidents happen during a game. it can't be avoided. ^__^ and we didn't have extra trainings. we got lots of rest yeah. but i think it was pure luck, and maybe a little bit of skill, that we won the championship.

we didn't have enough time to talk but that's not what's making me sad. what's making me sad is i'm still unsure if he likes me too. although a lot of people are saying that he really likes me. yet, i can't believe it because he sometimes act like i'm nothing to him. he is making me insecure.

That's awesome my myLotian friend. Yes despite you doubting yourselves in previous games and your past discussions the heart of a champion emerged a winner. That's what happens when you all jelled together as one. That's what champions do. Congratulations!!!! Woohoo!!! Enjoy your victory. Next time they won't see you as guests but as the team to beat. ‹(°¿°)›

thanks jumpinjack! we're not sure if they will still invite us next year. they might not and avoid the possibility of the championship going to a guest team.

LOL. I'm sure they will invite you all back. Everyone loves to challenge the champion. Go after the big dog. Knock the King (Queen) off her throne. Hehehe.

hey! thank you so much! it was an awesome game but really nerve-wracking. the first set was also a close fight. though we lost there, we didn't lose hope. we got the second set and the third set. the fourth set was very crucial. if we hadn't won there, we could have lost in the fifth set because of exhaustion. the God of luck was really on our side that day.

thanks saiven! i do't exactly know what happen. i thought we were going to be eliminated because we lost a lot of games consecutively. but it seemed that we still had the chance to play in the wildcard game and we won that which became our ticket to the quarterfinals. and no, i'm not going to be in the Philippine volleyball team because i'm not any good in playing volleyball. i just know how to play it. and the sportsfest that was held was only a part of the anniversary celebration of the host agency.

hi roni! yeah, that's one of the reason why i haven't been here. but the major reason is my crush. ^__^;; i've been feeling mixed emotions these past weeks and everything just makes me tired of the computer. i preferred to do something else to take him off of my mind. but even as i type now, i'm thinking about him and it just makes me so sad. anyway, thanks a lot roni. and i will response to your discussions and to my other friends discussions but its gonna be late but i surely will because i'm not erasing all the notifications i received. its just in my email and they have accumulated so i'm taking a lot of time to answer them all.

Congratulations! All along I thought you have already been eliminated because of your consecutive losses, then this news came out. I'm very happy for you, you team had definitely adjusted and progress in the right time. Finally the saying that "anything can happen in a game because the ball is round" came true in your team. Hurray for the champion!

thanks leealice! after the sportsfest we wouldn't have any games anymore. the next sportsfest would be next year and we don't know if the host agency will still invite us to play. they might not include us anymore because we stole the championship trophies from them.
