1. Post-tournament trip to the beach!  Sunday chillin.

  2. A tournament well played but hungry for more!  After the mental exhaustion of two 13+ hour days at the conference for school, getting my head in the game was much more difficult than usual.  Our hard work at practice didn’t feel like it was paying off… of the four games we played in the tournament this weekend, I personally feel like I was fully effective in one (even though the number of mistakes I made decreased markedly over the course of the tournament).  I hoped we’d place 2nd; we ended up 3rd.  We also won Spirit of the Game, which is also a wonderful thing… even if things weren’t clicking and we were frustrated, we maintained our composure and played with great sportsmanship.
Back to the field, back to the gym, back to the drawing board.  Time to get ready for a competitive year!

  3. There’s nothing like bonding with your boss and coworkers over a ridiculously self-important and self-centered keynote speaker to keep a conference lively.

  4. Awe - an experience of such perceptual vastness you literally have to reconfigure your mental models of the world to assimilate it.

  5. "Grow where you are planted."

  6. After a roller coaster final week of preparations (including two group members dropping out, massive presentation overhaul, student-supervisor-director-parent miscommunication, numerous stolen class periods, infighting, and a few after school power sessions) they made it!  Proud of these kiddos and all their hard work! #cmsgin2014

  7. "She’s a gringa, she doesn’t count."
    Ultimate friends who believe that their struggles related to exercise, diet, weight loss, and general health stuff don’t apply to me because I’m American.  It was actually pretty funny to be excluded even though everything they discussed affects me too.  
  8. Went to the gym and the trainer thought I was also a trainer.  I’ll take that as a compliment!

  9. Middle school swag.

  10. My weekend in Cabarete:

    • Car ride jams consisting of high school flashbacks and girl anthems
    • A beautiful drive through the mountains without getting lost!
    • Wonderful weather
    • Plenty of reading
    • Full body massage
    • Slacklining
    • Surprise ultimate friends encounter

    And some much needed down time… I was ready for a weekend out of Santo Domingo!  And this trip was perfect to unwind and decompress.
