Day 8 - Bad News!

So, today, we had individual meetings with Cory, the main agent running the August Firesale for BIP.  It was very sad news...  The first thing out of his mouth was the first thing that Tim said to me too, "You're thirty and you're married and I don't think we're going to be able to find you a team."  Oh man, I felt so crushed inside, but I contained my emotion and gracefully accepted his advice to start the next chapter of my life.  I love Cory!!!!!!!  This was hard to hear, but I felt that they let me down pretty easily.  I appreciate everything they've done for me here.  This entire experience with these girls was so inspiring and amazing - I've met some incredible women who I hope will be lifelong friends.  I start to plan my departure tomorrow night.  Back to Italy, then Amsterdam, Minneapolis, and finally SFO.  Tonight, the remaining group is hitting the bar and tomorrow we're off to Lake Bled for a recovery day...  :)


  1. What a disappointment! I'm inspired that you decided with the odds stacked against you to go out there and play the best damned volleyball you've ever played at the highest level and chose to go "all-in". A team would have been lucky to have you. What your agent failed to tell you was typically, at the end of an indoor volleyball career is the beginning of a sand volleyball career :) . . . and in the sand, 30 is not yet peaking! Do what makes you feel alive. Thanks for sharing your passion and adventures. You have a lot of people cheering.

  2. ahahahaha! thanks chung!! see you on the beach :)
