Transition to Germany - Feb 17, 2016

My first month in Germany was a transition period. I had gotten sick because I was getting use to the climate change. I had experience moments also where I was questioning myself if coming to Germany was the right decision. I experienced being paid late due to a communication problem. But after all that I prayed about it and my path had gotten better. I closed out the Christmas break with a 30 plus game even though we lost and was finding my confidence as well as being back to the fit shape I was capable of. Germany compared to the United States would be like the city of Seattle Washington only difference the people have way more personality. I'm frowned upon in public while travelling on the train when I bob my head and sing aloud listening to music. Courtesy is not the German way. But besides that I have met some Germans who don't have those qualities about them. Once the people know you they welcome you more but its just hard shell you have to crack to get there. The food is amazing I don't think I haven't liked anything yet, I eat everything lol. Germany isn't bad at all only time can tell if I stay here longer but I am appreciative of my time here. I wanna shout my teammates and the kids of the youth teams I coach. They brighten up my day and don't know it at times. Continue to follow the journey.
