My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Jesse Shaw.
I'm eighteen years old, but my parents still treat me like a kid. I know they're worried that I'm going to grow up too fast, or I'm going to miss out on my college education, but this is what I want. Soccer. Los Angeles.
I don't think there is a better education for me than learning from some of the best players in the world. Bryce Warren, Cody Rivera and my hero, Radleigh McCoy. He's my idol. My inspiration and the reason I wanted to play the game.
Every day, I learn something new from these guys. I know my parents are proud of me, but they're afraid too. They think I'll get sucked into the celebrity thing, and end up whacked out on drugs, only to spend the rest of my life in and out of rehab.
I don't care about any of that. Well, I'm not gonna lie, a kick-ass car is the first thing I'll buy when the paychecks start rolling in, but mostly I just want to play soccer.
I'm not a kid. Just a young guy, living his dream.
