    Glory and I visited a school today as the guests of an English teacher. We had a great time interacting with all the kids from ages 12-18 as we conducted an English/American Trivia game for them to participate and win prizes from our club. Our last home game is on April 25th, so we also gave each of them 2 tickets to this game. For many of the students, this was their first time speaking with foreigners and I was impressed with how well they understood/spoke English. I also found my future Russian husband (first photo) haha!

    Over the last few years I’ve thought about pursuing a career as an elementary school teacher in the future; I seek, value and enjoy these experiences very much! :-)

    With the start of April and spring comes my final month here in Russia. Playoffs have started and we are 1-0 against Orenburg in the 3-game series of quarterfinals! We travel to Orenburg to play what we hope will be the series-ending game on April 8th. If not, we will remain there for the third game on April 9th. Next update coming soon, xo :) View high resolution

    After being in Russia for 5 months, I finally got a chance to do some sightseeing. I spent an entire day in Moscow with one of my teammates and her family. The weather turned out perfect for the occasion— sunshine and clear skies (the freezing cold is inevitable haha)! Above are a few photos from that day but there are many more and some videos that I may share later on.

    We’re coming down to the home stretch in our season with just 3 regular season games left and then playoffs begin in April. After struggling the first half of the season, I was able to find a groove the last couple months. Now that we will only have 1 practice per day for the remainder of the season, I’m back in the weight room consistently and will be able to get in the gym and really kill it with my individual work. I’m excited about that! I will definitely be at my best these last few games and throughout the playoffs, it would be nice to make a strong run! :) 

    Hope you all are well, xo

    UPDATE: I enjoyed playing in front of my family and friends in my hometown but I couldn’t be more excited for this refreshing move to Atlanta! The opportunity to develop and grow my game while contributing to a great, winning organization with good teammates, coaches & staff is just what I need at this point in my career. :-)

    New Year, New Post :)

    Heyyy!

    I’ve been to America and back since I last posted, it’s been a while! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday seasons wherever they were. I’m so thankful I got to be home with family and friends during mine! :)

    I’m all settled back in Russia to focus in and have an even better experience than I did during the first few months… Starting with playing better and then also exploring. Between 2-a-days, long travel, and games there isn’t much free time. But when I have it, I’ll utilize it wisely. I guess you can say that’s part of my New Year’s Resolution, but I actually decided that I want to start eating better in 2013. Yeah yeah, skin-bone-muscle is what I look like haha but I eat way too much junk and I’m sure I’d feel better if I changed my diet a little. 

    We just played Lang’s (Crystal Langhorne) team a couple days ago. Not a great outcome for us, but it was nice hanging out with her, Kristi Toliver and Laura Harper afterwards. It was my first chance to spend time in Moscow, other than the countless times we’ve been stuck in HOURS of traffic, it’s a great city! Our next game is a EuroCup quarterfinal game but it isn’t until the 17th. So a lot of practice and improvement going on around here.

    OH! Someone brought this whole “Google bringing free WI-FI to a neighborhood in NY” to my attention from today’s news so I figured I’d share with y’all too. At home, I’m not usually going crazy for Internet but overseas? The FIRST thing I do wherever I go — gym, restaurant, airport, mall, etc. — is check for free WI-FI and then usually beg for a password haha!

    Well, it’s time for me to hit the bed but I plan on being back to share some cooler, more fun posts with you all soon! Take care…

    xoxo,
