A new season much different than before

It's been a while since I've written, but things have been pretty exciting here in Lyon for me lately. The season started back up again, so far it's been going well, and it's much different for me now because I am actually getting a lot of playing time, which is nice, and I hope it stays that way, but I guess that depends on me.

Additionally, i started back up with school two weeks ago, I am doing this master program in international business, which consists of 6 months of classes in french and english, and then another 4 to 8 months of internship, but where I am going to do that I don't know yet. I am glad I get to use my brain a little bit again, I think it fell asleep during the last 8 months. Playing soccer is really fun, but for me it can't be my only occupation. The classes have been really interesting so far, we have lots internationals even though the masters program consists only of 75 people. That creates a nice business atmosphere though and I am happy to meet people from all over the world, including the french of course.

This week half of the team left with their national teams for world cup qualifiers, so the numbers are reduced at practice, which can be a lot of fun too. This weekend it will be my turn to leave, as we are playing Israel in Ness Ziona, just outside of Tel Aviv, next Wednesday. I am excited to travel there since I have never been, and its going to be about 30 degrees, while here in Lyon its freezing cold. So I am glad to get out of here for a little while, but i have a lot of respect for all the news and stories surrounding the country. I think everyone is ready to play a good game in Israel, we need three points badly since we lost to Russia last month. Unfortunately, Ramona (Bachmann) injured her thigh (gueti besserig!!), so she won't be able to come with us.
