To be a part of something.
This year's move to london has prompted a newly born football (soccer) fandom thanks to having both a boyfriend and dear friend who are wholehearted Fulham fans. I've been to four games now, and watched a good deal more on tv, becoming invested in a team known for its heartbreaking brushes with success. Last week david and i were lucky enough to snag tickets to an unprecedented semi final homegame in the europa cup, and not only that but were able to experience the energy in Craven Cottage when they won. It was an eruption, a feeling of reaching a breaking point in nerves that were then fully released. It was nice to feel so attached to an atmosphere and feel like you were a part of something huge.
