My apologies for the long time no talk! Internet has been less than desirable as of late, but I’m back in business at least for tonight!
Well we played a very tough Lyon team last weekend and took our first loss. I landed badly on my ankle around the 70th minute, and, despite my best efforts to tough it out, had to be substituted shortly after. So this week I have been focused on getting my ankle back into good enough health to play in our Sunday match against Vendenheim. I tested out the ankle tonight at training and everything went pretty great, so I’m confident I will be rip roarin’ and ready to go for the game!
The match will be our first away contest of the season and I’m looking forward to it! We’re leaving tomorrow around noon to begin our 7 hour journey up into the northeast of France, and staying in a hotel tomorrow night. I’m most interested to see how the traveling experience compares/contrasts to what I have been used to the last four years at WKU. Should be a blast nonetheless..
Today was an extremely exciting day because ladies and gents, I bought myself a geetar! I bought my first guitar, thanks to my Aunt Lisa, about 8 years ago, and it became a fantastic dust collector for the better part of 5 years. Then, my brother began wanting to learn, so the thought of him being better than me at something was enough motivation to get me to finally relent to dusting off the old ax. So four years ago we taught ourselves how to play. He, I swallow my pride to admit, is much better than I, but I’m fully content with my particular repertoire of simple 90’s hits, cowboy chord, camp fire, tunes.. I have really missed not being able to pick up a guitar, since playing for me has always relieved the stresses of the day and comforted my soul. It’s nice to feel the music again! Now to find a nice little street and a tin can to make some extra Euro change.. Ha!
Looking forward to a fun and productive weekend! Thanks for reading and I hope all is well.
