2008 World Figure Skating Championships!!!

Started snowing late last night here in Wonderful Copenhagen, a fellow hall mate (who happens to be a friend of mine) and I thought it would be a lovely idea to go out at 1am and play in the snow. We didn't go out far, just on our street. She wanted to make snow angels, but there wasn't enough snow for that, but we did walk to the end of the street where it meets the canal, nothing prettier than snow falling on water, with soft yellow lights all around. As you can see, I'm utter crap at taking pictures at night - sorry these are so bad. Just imagine a winter wonderland - because that is what it looked like.

Speaking of bad - I did a very bad thing last night, in the euphoria of the falling snow - I emailed my crush in London. Yes Virginia Gal very stupid indeed, and I have already mentally beaten myself up about it. I am heading to London this weekend, as it is Copenhagen Business School's Easter/spring break. Thus I thought, at 1am last night, that it would be a good idea to email him and suggest meeting up - which he completely dismissed, this afternoon. I felt bad for a second and than said "screw 'him, what a jerk,"...hey that is progress, right?

Tomorrow I'm off to Gothenburg, Sweden for the 2008 World Figure Skating Championships - woohoo!! I can't wait!! No predictions this year, as I've been already reading the results and am totally bummed about the Americans (not doing good in the first few days, but I'll write more later).

oh and I had to mention, someone asked me if I would like to live in Copenhagen and I said, yes but only if my family and American friends could move here with me. I miss my wacky but lovable clan and good girlfriends, otherwise everything else in Copenhagen is great!

Lord, that's not stupid! YOu took a chance, good for you. And then when he reacted thoughtlesly, you let it go. Good for you again. Life is about risks.

Now, enjoy the skating!

Hey Gal, we miss you too like crazy! I am so happy you moved on so quickly with that obvious loser! Good job! I bet you can't wait for the figure skating. I was most happy to hear you excited about the snow. Wow! I know how much you love that cold weather. It is beautiful though, that's what I love, when it is snowing, late at night and it is quiet. I love those moments. Have fun on your much deserved break, I am def. enjoying mine.

But, is the Prince back from the war zone? What about him? (or is he the one you are talking about)

Wow, awesome! I hope you had a fabulous time at the championships (and have some lovely pics to share) and have a great time in London. It's so great that you didn't let that guy's reaction get you down - that is very much progress!

I don't think it was stupid. I put myself out there for the first time since my break up and emailed a guy suggesting we hang out. And he also brushed it off. It sucks I know, but it was brave to try. I wish we all could move to Copenhagen!

Late as usual, but I thought I'd chime in and wish you a happy time at the championships! And good job not letting it get you down - sometimes it's good to get that final acknowledgment so you can let it go and move on to other, better things! :-)

Darla - you could say you are saving the best for last : )

thanks for the encouragement, I'm so glad I am finally over this jerk!
