Afternoon Sports Ministry, Saturday, Part 1

That afternoon was pretty busy. We had lunch with the church we were serving, La Vina, and then we prepared our soccer sports ministry. It was at a big, sandy-and cement park. We started off by just kicking soccer balls around.
As you can,(or maybe can't) see, whoever was the goalie took a real beating. (We called it the torture pit.) The park was right next to a downhill road, so whatever soccer balls went over the net rolled down the hill and had to be chased. Some people didn't want to kick soccer balls, so we played other games.
We had a organized soccer game too, complete with yellow jerseys(for the yellow team) and invisible jerseys.(for the no-jersey team.)  Before, Matthew and Andrew led everyone in stretches.
Emmett on the sidelines. The girl to the right, with the long hair, is named Hannah.

Starting lineup and explanation of rules.

Run for it! These kids were tough. Almost nobody got hurt, despite the fact that they enjoyed bouncing the ball off everybody's heads.

Of course we attracted attention, and Juan was great at introducing people into the game.

The dads did a great job of announcing the score every couple of minutes(siete-ocho!), but I completely forgot which team won. Perhaps because I was too busy planning the ministry part to follow.

On the premise of a "water break", we got everyone off the soccer field and gave everybody snacks.  We did a ministry, which I'll tell you about later.

More later!

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
