I found some motivation. I just finished reading my blog posts from my time in Denmark and realized how important it is to write things down. Grandma always tells me to write my memories. Most of the time I listen to what she tells me, but lately I haven’t felt much like writing. 

I write a lot in my head, but never sit down and type it out. 

I will not try to start with the last 5 months of my life, but I will just start with today (and hopefully fill in the missing gaps of time). 

Today was a big day for those in the NE USA. Hurricane Sandy made landfall and turned into what they are calling Superstorm Sandy now. I pretty much spent the bulk of my day listening/watching CNN and learning about the disaster happening back in the States. 

Being that tomorrow is Halloween, I had to go out and piece together my costume for tomorrow night. I am having my “Crémaillère” tomorrow with my teammates. A Crémaillère is a french word which describes a party at someone’s apartment who has recently moved in. So it is like a house warming party, except a bit different. I made it a requirement that my teammates come dressed up in costumes or else they cannot enter 🙂 Should be fun. 

We train super late so my day doesn’t really start training wise until 6:30 pm and then I arrive home around 8:30 or 9:00 depending on how I get home. Sometimes I take the tram, other times my awesome teammates will drive me home. This week I have been diligent about prepping my meals before training so that it takes minimal time to eat a good, healthy, hot meal when I get home from training. 

We also started daylight savings here last week and that has been a great help with getting me to sleep a bit earlier than previously, thus making it easier to wake up a little earlier as well. 

The temperature has dropped drastically over the last 5 days and I have resorted to turning my heat on in my apartment. Otherwise I feel like an icicle.
