Some updates!

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part
— Tom Petty/Coach Luke

Hello again!

I know you’re all seriously dreading summer (yes, much like the flu shot, it is an annual thing) and as we all savor these last few weeks of school before that pesky sun starts shining and we have to put our school books away, buy new swim suits and be generally tied down by our daily poolside lounging commitments, I thought it might be a good time to reconnect.

Plus, I got like, 10 hits last week. I know some of you are still out there.

So first, some updates!

Many of you have asked about my summer plans, as most of you know I’m graduating from kollege with an edjaktion (kidding..) in May! Well, between you and me, here’s the deal.

I’m trying for a few things right now, including Teach for America and this incredible Semester at D.C. learning about and working in politics. So pretty darn cool.

The issue, of course, is that TFA doesn’t just…put you in a classroom. In fact, I’d be in a teacher boot-camp for much of the summer, meaning I’d more than likely have to bid farewell for a while. Frowny face, I know.

I still have to get in though, of course, and there’s much still to be decided and many other opportunities I’m seeking, so I just don’t know yet.

So…waiting. It’s hard but everything should be figured out sooner than later.

Kindly, Sandy and Dave are holding off on naming a head coach (new or old!) until May 1. In the meantime, I’ll keep you posted!

I find out about TFA on the 18th of April, and the D.C. program about a week after that. Plus a billion other interviews between now and then.

If you have nothing else to do until then, check out the American Swimming Association University league Web site next week! Rich, Josh and myself will all be heading out to North Carolina on Friday for club nationals, and those full results will be posted online by the 15th! I’m thinking a three-peat for CU, but we’ll see…

Finally…some Tom Petty love (Disclaimer: there’s more than 1 seriously bad mullet in this video..)

Good talk guys, I’ll be back online in about a week!

p.s. I added a feed! More on how to use that magic power coming soon…
