Upon reading my last post I found that it left something to be desired. To analyze it in the manner of an eighth grade English teacher, it lacked any substance or point--other than to announce my return to the U.S.
To elaborate more on my time back in the land of democracy I guess the word to use is relaxed. Monday was the first real snow storm of the year which is fine by me since it offers just another excuse to sit inside and do mindless activities (like blogging). Beyond this and the occasional nap or ride on my trainer my days are pretty unstructured. Lately however, I have become re-addicted to an old computer game I discovered while rummaging through an old shoe box next to my desk. According to the CD, the game is from 1999 (I know for some of you that may not seem old but for me, it is) and, sadly, I still find it entertaining--a testament to the fact that my brain hasn't developed since the age of nine.Fortunately though I do possess some semblance of will-power and can pry myself away from my computer screen to run errands, watch the Bruins, or visit friends now and then. All and all, not a bad life.
As for life "post-holiday season," my main focus will be the bike. For those of you who haven't heard (and I'm guessing that since you read this blog you know me pretty well and have heard) I got a professional cycling contract to ride for Team Jelly Belly Presented by Kenda for this upcoming cycling season. Words cannot describe how excited I am for this opportunity which I have been passionately pursuing since the age of ten (about the same time I started playing that computer game! Coincidence?....yea probably). After talking it over with a few teammates and various other cycling contacts I've decided to move to Tuscon, AZ for the winter months of January and February. At the moment, I'm still in the process of looking for a place to live but I hope to have that all sorted out by the end of the week.
I guess that's all for now. Happy Holidays!
