stumbled upon this video on Carli’s twitter and now I’m emotional.

Olympic feelings

It’s over. The Olympics.

This was the first time in my life I actually watched something of it besides the opening and closing ceremonies— and that I enjoyed sports at all I think. —I thought it was impressive that the gymnasts could do all those flips and bends and the swimmers were so fast and I didn’t know two people could dive that way and at the exact same time and I actually watched soccer for the first time…

And go Team America!!!- Kicking some foreigner tail :P

I mean the athletes were great but I actually got into the competition… And then I mean the entertainment was fantastic too… and hilariously awesome

plus I have a newfound love for Ryan Lochte

-he’s intelligent-

-and he’s classy-

-and he’s … well-

I don’t know what to do now… I’ve been watching these games so intently for these past days and I’m left like-

What now? I don’t want to watch boring athletes, I want the world’s finest!!! I don’t think I can watch normal television for the time being… I’m gonna go sulk and watch less intense and competitive television while the sheer aweand feels keeps me from going to sleep.

…Goodnight all!

One more for the road… :D

Many people think we are here to win a gold medal. I think that’s a pretty accurate statement, but there’s a desire that goes way beyond the bling. It’s the desire to do something extraordinary.

I have a huge, huge love for Russia (aph and the real country), the olympics, the world. 

So while the olympics I’ll probably scream, cry, squeal, flail and other fangirl moments. 


During the olympics: 

When my homeland (Canada, Norway, England, Scotland, Ireland or Wales) wins: 

When one of my bbys win (Nordics, America, England, Russia, Japan, China):

My mom:
