Now, I know it may come as a shock to all of you, and rightfully so. I am far from an athletic person, as anyone who was present for the events discussed can attest to. In fact, this came as a surprise to me, too.
But I really love playing volleyball at MSA. It’s one of the more fun experiences I’ve had since arriving here, and that’s saying something. Before coming here, I detested any sport in any form, and the idea of partaking was the furthest thing from my mind at all times. I was convinced that, due to my lack of tact or ability, anyone that I played with would judge me. Full transparency, that fear still pops up every know and then.
However, thanks to the people at MSA, it’s manageable. Everyone who plays is a genuinely kind person, and I’ve never felt judged, even when I messed up. In fact, certain people have even been kind enough to start teaching me how to play correctly, which is a surreal experience, to say the least.
Speaking of, the entire event of volleyball games will, I am confident, go with me into the rest of my life. They just have that air about them of nights I like to remember, and I vividly recall stopping several times to appreciate the fact that I was there, actually experiencing that moment. And that is a feeling almost better than scoring a point for your team 🙂
I look forward to many more volleyball games, and a thank you to everyone who plays with me!
Sincerely, someone who still needs to serve a little softer.
