27 days until the Winter Olympics begin! Are you excited? I am thrilled...these athletes have dedicated their entire lives to their sport. Their dedication and abilities are motivating, but at the same time the games make me feel like the biggest slacker in the world. There is a better chance of me winning the lottery than accomplishing something half as cool as being in the Olympics. I might be able to participate in curling if I start practicing 16 hours a day.

I'm sad that Lindsey Vonn will not be competing in speed skiing, but am excited to see Shaun White in snowboarding and Gracie Gold in Figure Skating.

The winter Olympics begins on February 7th and ends on February 23rd. Mark you calendars!
