"So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.
The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female."
World Cup Soccer Stats Erase The Sport’s Most Dominant Players: Women (via cypher2)
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if soccer/football became the first sport to go co-ed at the professional level. There really isn’t any reason it couldn’t be. It’s one of the only sports where the men and the women are about the same size and the violence level is pretty much dead even in their separate leagues as it is now. When I still played all of the best players on my team also played on a regional competitive co-ed team that was beastial. Men and women routinely play on the same team at the organized informal level all the time. I think it actually improves the game because the teams are well rounded. The usual differences people trot out to explain why men and women shouldn’t play together usually just mean that team members can do their specific job better or the game is more interesting to watch because the competitors are using different tactics. IDK, if USA Soccer is ever looking to organize a forward thinking international invitational event that people would want to watch and the US stands a good chance of actually winning, an all-star co-ed match would be a fantastic idea.

Sometimes recovery is waking up early to write in coffee shops and practicing yoga and eating lots of fruit and chocolate and sometimes it’s staying in bed all day and hiding from the world until you can stop crying. All of this is ok. What’s important is that you take care of yourself no matter what kind of day you’re having.

"There are only two important elements to a great novel. The first is an interesting character. A character that you thoroughly know and feel will go a long way toward attracting a readership.
The second element is an interesting problem."
I’m sorry but if you try to tell me there are only three wizard schools in the ENTIRE magical world I will fight you.
I wanna see Indian wizardry schools
Japanese magic schools where the house ghosts have shrines
Schools hidden in sand dunes and enchanted to look like mirages
American schools hidden in Roswell and Salem
Public magical schools for kids that don’t want to leave home for seven years
GIVE ME ALL THE WIZARD SCHOOL HEAD CANONS!
"I hope you fall in love
With someone who always texts back and never lets
You fall asleep thinking you’re
I hope you fall in love with someone
Who holds your hand during the scary parts of
Horror movies and burns
Cookies with you when you’re
Too busy dancing around the
I hope you fall in love with
Someone who sees galaxies in your eyes
And hears music in your
I hope you fall in love with someone who
Tickles you and makes you smile
On hard days and on easy
But beyond all that I hope
You fall in love with someone
Who will never leave you behind
And who will never take you
For granted, someone who
Will stand by you when you’re
Right and stand by you
When you’re wrong,
Someone who has seen you at your worst
And has loved you
I hope you fall in love
With someone who
Kisses you in the rain
And hugs you in the cold and
Wouldn’t have you any other
