I Can't Think of a Good Title :)

Hey all! Don't you just love fall weather? I forgot how beautiful this season can be! And for some reason, especially in Lincoln, fall is just a magical time of year.

On the volleyball front, nothing new to report. I'm still looking for a contract but nothing has worked out so far. So, I'm still in Lincoln just hanging out, staying in shape, and training with the Huskers. On a side note, I have applied for an internship at a publishing company here in town. I thought it might be interesting to explore some of the things my English major has to offer me. Plus, it's paid so it'd be a nice way to earn some cash while I'm in Lincoln. I've also applied for a few other temporary part time jobs so keep your fingers crossed for me. Hopefully something works out.

I'm in my third week of Insanity! These workouts are, for lack of a better word, INSANE! I still cannot get through an entire workout without having to take a few breaks. It is easily the best workout I've ever done. But you know what? I put on a pair of jeans today and they were a little bit loose on me! Woo! That might be the best feeling ever! Only 6 more weeks til' I complete the whole Insanity program!

Other than that, there really isn't anything new going on with me. I'm just hanging out in Lincoln being boring. I'm sure I'll be heading back to Dubuque sometime soon (even if it's only to get my fall/winter clothing out of storage). In the meantime, say some prayers for me that one of these jobs/internship works out!

Until next time...

Sending all my love to you from Lincoln!


P.S. I don't know if I've told you this yet, but Larry the Cable Guy is coming to Lincoln October 13th and I can't wait to see his show in person! So here's a clip from one of his shows for your entertainment! Enjoy!

White Blank Page

Out of nowhere, inspiration hits me. This lit a fire in my heart today. Hope it does the same for you.

#58 Go for a walk on the Mississippi River Walk


Monday, September 10, 2012


Hello all! I'm blogging to you from Lincoln, NE! I'm still living here working out on my own and training with the Huskers so I can stay in good volleyball shape. Life is good! I can't really complain about being in Lincoln in the fall. With football and volleyball going on, plus the beautiful fall weather, it's a very special place to be!

I am still looking for a contract to go play overseas somewhere. I was contacted by one of the agents I'm working with about a team in Romania that is possibly looking to sign me. Nothing is for sure yet so take this with a grain of salt. I'll for sure keep you updated as things occur.

In the meantime, I decided to finally take on the 60 Insanity workout challenge! It's #55 on my list of 101 in 1001. I'm super excited to see some amazing results! I did the first workout today and DAMN it is rough! It's gonna be super hard to get through the next 60 days but I just have to keep my goals in mind, especially my biggest goal: 2016 Olympics in Rio! Wish me luck! Hopefully I'll have an awesome "after" photo that I'll get to show off to you :)

Anyways, you'll have a few more blog posts coming your way very soon I promise! Until then...

Sending all my love to you!


P.S. Larry the Cable Guy is coming to Lincoln in October and I'm definitely gonna go see him. Not only because he's one of my favorite comedians and a HUGE Husker fans, but also because it's on my list of 101 in 1001 (#85)! So here's a clip courtesy of Larry for your laugh of the day!
