Megan Miller is a senior Oregon State player and a recovering soccer addict. She’s now been soccer sober for more than three months since her career with the Beavers came to an end. This is her latest update:
I am now more than three months “soccer sober.” As of two weeks ago, I started to realize how much free time I have without a practice to attend. At first, my time was filled up with sleeping, America’s Next Top Model, marathons, cleaning rampages, The Bachelor Mondays, excessive Pinterest time… you get the picture. And then it hit me: I’ll be graduating in all of five months and if I want to get a job then I had better get to work. Luckily, all those years of competitive soccer taught me well, and… I GOT A JOB!
And not just any job: a job that is within my major and will definitely look good on a resume. When it came time for my first day I wasn’t quite sure what the appropriate dress code would be, but I had a feeling my usual sweats ensemble would not be such a good idea. After pushing all of my sweatpants, shorts, sports bras, team shirts, soccer socks, sweatshirts, raincoats, and Nike runners aside, I was able to find the rest of my wardrobe. For a while I had forgotten that I actually owned clothes that weren’t made from dry-fit material.
