It has been a very interesting trip I must say.  After a day of training on Thursday and part of Friday, I got a chance to go up north for the weekend.  It was a nice getaway from the norm, but there are a couple things I am happy about.

The first thing is I am happy for a hockey alternative.  College hockey is the best thing since sliced bread in my opinion.  Especially with the lockout in full force.

The second thing is maybe it is a good idea that I am not in the dating pool.  At the age of 32, I have quickly learned that I just don’t have the patience or charm for that kind of thing.  Especially the charm part.  Case in point, my friend and I went out to a nightclub last night.  This was in a college town, so you can assume almost everyone in this place was under 26 for the most part.  Anyway, I just felt….how should I put it….out of place.  Even if I was single, I don’t think it would have felt right.  I really don’t know how to put this into words.  That is my problem right there.

My last statement in this entry is on Ferris State Hockey and what I am going to do after this season.  My USCHO job is fun and important to me.  However, I am starting to get the urge to try something different.  The drive up to FSU all the time really doesn’t motivate me much anymore.  Especially with everyone I know leaving after the end of this upcoming season.  I am going to be thinking long and hard about this and making a decision at the end of the season.
