I went to play tennis with a friend after work tonight.
I’ve never played before, really, except for freshman year when Stephen and I gave it a go, really just so we had another reason to spend time together. We knew nothing.
Tonight, it was so fun.
I can’t say I have much natural aptitude, but I’m willing to run for it and put in the effort. I suppose I’m really quite horrible; I only managed to beat her at 3 of the 20 or so sets we played. Either way I came home loving it and hoping she’ll put up with my pathetic skills so that we can play again.
Side note: I’m currently having very vivid deja vu and wondering if I’ve actually already played tennis with her since I’ve been here, and perhaps blogged about it similarly? I’m genuinely not sure now if perhaps I have played before.
Either way, it made me appreciate having summer all year here. You do sweat all the time, I guess; but you can also swim, play tennis, cycle and run outside any time you want!
