I’ve been playing Touch for two years, took a break for a year and I was recently back at it again. After much consideration, I’ve decided to drop the sport once again. No sighs, cause the fun I get from playing Touch is no longer the fun that I am looking for. I love Touch a lot, but it’s not enough. Loving is one thing, having the ability to commit for trainings and not start to dread them is another.. I love Touch, but I’ve no intentions to play it till I’m in my late 20s or 30s. I love Touch, I like being good at playing it, but I want to have more company than those from my team mates. As much as playing competitively for the university guarantees you a place in one of the halls, there are also other happier and more fun ways to achieving that.
Previously, I was juggling between three different roles. Being the Vice Captain of Bikila, a Touch player and a student.. It wasn’t easier, I almost screwed everything up. I don’t need and I don’t wish to have that kind of stressful life again.. I want to enjoy my university life, making friends and having fun. So, I’ve decided to drop the role as a competitive Touch player, I’ll just play Touch recreationally. Soon, I should be exchanging the role as a NTU Touch player for the role of a JCRC member. No regrets, cause it’s something I would love to do too. Planning camps and leading peers, with loads of fun ((:
As for now, I’m drafting an email to explain everything to my Coach. I’m sorry, but I don’t think I share the sentiments as I did before joining the team two months ago. I doubt you would want such a player, a player who can’t commit. As we go down the road of life, priorities changes, mine did..
