i thought this would be a great idea since so many supporters have been so interested in the process of me playing professionally and where i would end up. this blog should give my family and Friends a glimpse of what it is like to be overseas. I will try and keep this updated the best i can as i go through my 10 month journey. I will talk about life, the team, the city, and of course the games. I will also try and keep pictures the best i can as well. I will start my first post with this summer and the stress and excitement of the process.
This summer has been a rather unique one. In past summers i had someone taking up my time almost twenty four seven from, coaches, professors, internship, weight room, personal workouts, and what ever else. This summer was very different as i watched many of my friends graduate and move on to the next step of there lives. Many getting full time jobs and starting there life. While i was laying around mom and dad's houses, working out, and visiting lakes, friends, and family. While it has been a rather relaxing summer which i am very thankful for it also has been a very anxious summer. I have worked so hard the past few years to accomplish the goal of playing professionally, but i did not know if the goal would come true or not.
The whole month of may and June is spent working out not knowing if anyone will want you . All the anxiousness has turned to excitement as i have recently found out i will be playing in Mulhouse, France. It is very exciting to see all my hard work pay off. I will be leaving towards the end of July, and will return in May ( i believe i get to come home for Christmas). France should be a great place for me to get my feet wet since this will be my first trip overseas.
I hope you will have a chance to check up on me now and then and feel free to leave comments or questions.
Thanks to all,
This is BC going for now!!
