Fortunate to Be Coached By Dan!

The History of My “Stalker” . .

Wow, It seems like forever since I posted a blog, hope you didn’t miss me to much ;). This weekend I was really busy and did a lot of traveling around but it was a great weekend and I found out some really good information about the man who has been stalking me since I first arrived here in Turkey. Everywhere I go I see this man. I can’t get away from him. I walk in a store, a gym, a mall, even a bathroom he is there.  Every time I reach in my wallet to pay for something, there he is staring at me, everywhere I go I see his cold blue eyes staring at me, watching my every move- no I’m not talking about “Big Brother” but none other than, Mustapha Kemal ,”The Man of Turkey” or as some say “The Genius of the 20th Century.Read the rest

This year N C State had the 5th annual Hoops For Hope Event that Coach Yow started to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer. She had fought the disease for so long that she decided to turn a negative into a positive by startingthe Hoops For Hope Event. I wasn’t able to attend this year, but alot of my former teammates where there to support the event.  This year’s event was even more special because they raised a banner in honor of Coach Kay Yow.… Read the rest

Giving love on Valentine’s!

I was told yesterday  by the captain of my team that we were going to visit a homeless shelter for kids and to buy some toys that we could give them as gifts.

I spent the entire morning searching for toys. I had no idea that I would have such a hard time finding toys that I thought they children would really like and appreciate.  So I tried to imagine what I could have possibly wanted if I was a child again.  I finally decided to get some Spider Man and Hanna Montana Theme Back Packs that I figured would come in handy with school supplies and also for the kids to have something to store the other purchases that my teammates had picked out for them.… Read the rest
