So I've been here almost two weeks now, and am settling in quite nicely. I can't believe how warm it is here! Well, not warm exactly, but not snowing and not as cold as what I left in Colorado!
We have our third game of the playoff tomorrow against a not so good team, so we should win. Currently we're ranked third in the standings, and depending on how the other top two teams do we could be bumped up to second. The playoffs are three months long, with one game a week. So really its like conference play, only we play each team once.
The team is awesome, but very new and very young. I guess there were only three returning players from last year's team and the rest all came from other clubs. The oldest player is 32, a couple girls are 26, there's four of us who are 21, and the rest are 19. It's an interesting mix. One girl is an engineer, one is a cop, we have a pharmacist, a teacher, and a midwife, and the rest of the girls are in school, either at university or in highschool. I feel sort of out of place with nothing to do but play volleyball, but I'm not complaining--I'm very much enjoying my time off!

Until next time,
