As this month draws to a close so does the 2010 Olympic Games. Congrats to all Countries that participated in the Olympics. I am proud that you came to my Country and Proud that you have the guts to do what so many dream of doing. I am truely a Proud Canadian today as we have won 14 Gold Medals and we have set a new record. My favorite part of the Olympics is our first gold medal won at home and the Women and Men's hockey team again defeating the United States in Hockey. Both games were great and really close. I am so glad that we support both Nations in Hockey. This is what peace is all about. Thank you for coming to Canada and you all are most welcome to come again.

A lot has gone on in my personal life as well. I put my relationship with Kris on hold as right now I need to focus on me and getting me on my own feet. I am also looking at going back to school as well so we shall see how that goes. I have applied at a lot of jobs even if it seems I'm not qualified for them but you never know unless you don't apply. I will be back out tomorrow to apply to more and also on Wednesday. Wish me Luck.
