These past few weeks have been amazing! Not only because Santa came but also because I was able to be with my family and friends from home. After exams I was able to take a break from school work and travel to Cologne, Germany with Katie. We went to the Christmas markets there and I think the best way to describe them would to be ‘Christmasy’. The best part was when we were ordering hot chocolate and the guy asked Katie if she wanted white cream (aka whipped cream) and she said, “si.” I don’t know why she felt the need to be in Germany (where they speak German btw…), order in English, and then respond to a question asked in English, in Spanish. Some things about Katie just will always blow my mind LOL.
Anyway it was a great short trip and then we went home to Boston! We surprised Madelyn up at Holy Cross as she was ordering pizza (per usual) and then went to Chipotle as our first meal back home in the good ‘ole US of A. Other than the food, it was great to spend time with the whole Ganser clan. The last time we had all been together was last Christmas so it had been quite some time. I think the only thing that had changed was that I had lost quite a bit of hair (#bloodthinners).
I was able to see my former teammates and coaches play a few games. It was strange being a spectator but I think it is for the best because there is no shot I would even make it through a practice at this stage.
Although my favorite time of year has officially passed, I am very excited to get back to coaching, studying, playing and continuing my journey with Sport Changes Life. There was a nice familiarity coming back to Dublin and I cannot wait to see what 2015 has in store!
