Hey everyone. I just wanted to do a quick post telling you what's been going on lately.
Monday was amazingly awesome. I had a blast with the Students Live crew when we all got together for a tour of the Olympic Press Centre at Canada Place and a lecture by Theresa Lalonde of CBC. The Press Centre was amazing. All I can say is that the press is going to be comfortable for those 2 weeks. They have everything there! Fom a built in McDonalds, to a laundromat, to a huge press coonference room, this building was amazing. We had a great time getting showed around and learning about what's going to be happening there during the Olympic Games. I feel very fortunate to have had a tour of the Press Centre, and I'll get a picture up soon.
We had a lot of fun together on Monday. We came up with our little catch phrase...."Are YOU ready?, and filmed a quick little video ad to showcase what we have been and are going to do. I encourage you to check it out at http://www.studentslive.ca/.
When we got together, we also found out our event placement. What events we will each be individually covering during the games. The anticipation was very high in the room. I am very pleased with my events. I have the honour of going to the:
-The Opening Ceremonies
-Womes Hockey (FIN vs. RUS)
-Mens Snowboard X
-Victory Ceremony on the night of the above.
I am so happy with all of my events and I can't wait to get started.
Thats all I have for now! I'll update in a few days so stay tuned!
