So those of you who really know me, know that I hate being cold. So you will all be suprised that I am considering moving to somewhere even colder than Utah and Michigan.

Vancouver is hosting the 2010 Olympic games. Since I have been working with the sliding sports (bobsled, luge, skeleton) for a little while, and I have been working at the Utah Olympic Park for a while, I decided to apply for a job with the Sliding Centre in Whistler, British Columbia. I have loved the Olympic games since I was a member of the 2002 Opening and Closing ceremonies team. That was one of the most memorable experiences of my life, and working at the park allows me to relive the experience everyday I go to work.

I applied for the position of Administrative Assistant for the Sliding Sports. I would be working with the Directors of Bobsled, Skeleton, and Luge and also with the Director of the Sliding Centre. I am absolutely enamored with the sliding sports and I think that they are the coolest things in the entire Olympics. One of the people that I work with did all the announcing for the sliding sports during the 2002 and 2006 games and almost has the job for 2010, he made a call for me *fingers crossed*. He also gave me the card of the Director of the Sliding Centre, so I emailed him directly to talk about my interest in the sports. My roommate is a skeleton athlete and her dad is a USBSF (US Bobsled and Skeleton Federation) coach so he is also going to make a call for me. I'm hoping to hear back soon.

I am still continuing the law school application process but am keeping my fingers crossed for Vancouver!

Vancouver would be AWESOME! You should talk to Kathy Babiak and see if she has any connections because she did work for the bid committee.
