Yesterday in the mail I received the first installment of my soccer scholarship - a cheque large enough to cover a considerable portion of next terms tuition. After thinking about it for a few minutes, I realized that I had finally achieved my life-long dream of getting paid to play soccer.

Its not much, definitely still miles away from professional or semi-professional pay, but finally receiving monetary reward after all those years of sacrifice and hard work... Hard to describe how satisfied I was.

Heres to hopefully more cheques for playing soccer in the future, eh?

Didn't realise the picture was your signature at first, it fits in well with the context of your post haha. Congratulations, it's always great to hear of success stories, and I'm certain it will motivate others who are perhaps struggling a bit. Best of luck.
