Church! And Ultimate!

So, this was my first full Sunday in Vancouver. Luckily, I met a guy at Regent over the week who offered me a ride to his church (Grace International Baptist Church). It was a lot of fun, with a strong Filipino congregation and a good German preacher, it was an interesting visit. I'm not sure if I should keep looking around, or settle in. I really liked it, the only problem is that it is pretty far away from where I live, so I'd be dependent on rides. I dunno, but I'll keep you updated!

Then, I got home and my roomie Sarah had invited me to play a game of ultimate just across the street at the park. So, I changed and went. Turned out, it wasn't just a church game, it was a full-on league. Needless to say, I can't throw a frisbee at the best of times, let alone when there are people blocking you and yelling the 10-second count in your ear. And you actually are supposed to hit a moving target.
So, the first game we lost pretty bad. I definitely helped in that outcome, because although I made a couple of catches, my throws were pretty wild. Eventually, we lost and got ready for our second game. I had a chance to practice throwing a bit, and was able to actually contribute a little to the next game. Lots of fun!

In other news, my first class will be on Tuesday. Should be crazy. GREEK!! AHHH!! Sorry, freak out. I'm ok with my other classes since I've already done equivalent classes at Vanguard. I could actually be exempt from taking them, but I'm thinking that Regent will have a different perspective, which will be helpful, and I'd also rather not bite off more than I can chew in my first semester. Review is good...

Keep sending me e-mails and comments! I always read them and cherish them!
