Caitlin and I have been preparing, practicing for this day eight hours a day, five days a week. It was still the pre-season, but this GameDay was real, it still counts, and it was the first one. And we were on my home court, my alma mater, The Catholic University of America.
|Back-to-School: Our first match was on my ol' stomping yards---CUA.|
|Purple haze: All set up from banner to tablecloth|
Then if they’re further interested, I might add, “After doing it, I’m a believer in this. I got to find out more about who I am. I wouldn’t have found out that I want to be a high school teacher now. And from my experience and from every volunteer I’ve talked to, it makes us better at what we do now today. Do you guys remember Kelsey Flynn? She’s a full-time RN in California, right, she’s got the job, but you know what the other month she came to me and said, ‘Matt, I want to do service.’ What? Kelsey Flynn who already has the job? But she still wants to do service? Something to think about.”
Two hours later, I went back to the table to Caitlin to clean up camp. “I’m beat.” “Yeah, me too,” she says. “Like, my voice is out. I’m talked out. Can you imagine doing this four to five days a week, every week for two months?”
