Paige Satchell's had her first taste of the W-League. And the New Zealand international wants more.
Not surprising really, given she's about to make her finals debut in a knockout semi against premiers Sydney FC at Kogarah Park on Monday.
Satchell will return home to Auckland when United's season ends - hopefully following the W-League grand final next Sunday.
She was looking forward to seeing her family again - although she'll have to spend two weeks in quarantine first.
Satchell has found a new home in Canberra's front three - alongside Michelle Heyman and Nicki Flannery.
She spent last season in the German Bundesliga with SC Sand before testing herself in the W-League for the first time.
"I have really enjoyed my time in Canberra. It kind of reminds me of home a little bit - it's not too busy in ways," Satchell said.
"I'd be keen to come back and play in the W-League in future seasons.
"I've always watched it growing up. It's always been something I've aspired to be in.
"I have played a season in Germany last year so that's my first professional experience.
"It's a quality league. There's so many good players in here. It's definitely an environment where I can grow and challenge myself as a player, and it's definitely done that so far this season."
Whenever United's season comes to an end, Satchell will head back across the Ditch to see her family for the first time since November.
International border closures have meant her family hasn't been able to cross the Tasman and watch her play, but the clock's ticking towards a reunion.
That will mean two weeks locked in a room - quarantine is still a requirement going into New Zealand, but not coming the other way.
But given the 22-year-old's studying sport management by correspondence that might not be such a bad thing.
She'll have plenty of time to catch up.
"I do have a fair amount of work to get through with that so it will actually be quite good I think," Satchell said.
"I can have no distractions and just get that done, but I'm sure a fair bit of Netflix will also be on the cards."
Then her focus will turn to the Tokyo Olympic Games, which will hopefully go ahead in July and for which the Football Ferns have qualified.
While the Matildas play a couple of friendlies in Europe over the coming weeks, Satchell was unsure exactly what the preparations would be like for the Kiwis.
She was hopeful to find out more on the road to Tokyo.
"It's exciting that it's looking like it's still going ahead," she said.
"We don't have many international tours planned for the Football Ferns, but hopefully we can get a decent amount of the girls back in New Zealand and have some preparation going into the Games.
"But a lot of the teams are in the same situation with lack of international travel. We've just got to develop and build individually leading up so we go in the best form of ourselves.
"But it's exciting we have something like that to look forward to.
"There's conversations going on in the background. Nothing's been confirmed yet, but they're trying their best.
"It's so difficult at the moment to plan things. We've got players scattered all around the world so it's really hard to bring everyone together."
Monday: Canberra United v Sydney FC at Kogarah Park, 3pm.
