I'm Home!

I am finally home from a very long trip! I will be back tomorrow with a long post and lots of pictures. It was really great to meet a lot of new people throughout my travels and as always, great to catch up with old friends!

Thank you to everyone that became a Heartbacker this trip. You guys are so generous and I greatly appreciate all of the support you have given!

Pez, it was nice to meet you in person as well. I am glad you enjoyed your trip to San Diego!

Talk to everyone soon and look out for a trivia question tomorrow.

A Little Something..

I know, I haven't done an update again! The trip to Taiwan was so-so and of course, I am not pleased with how I played. I will be back with pictures and updates later.

The WPBA event here in San Diego has been going well so far for me. I have been battling jetlag pretty bad, but I can't complain too much considering there were about 10 other players right there with me. Tuesday I went to visit the Naval base and the Marine base. I met some really, really cool people and had a great time! Thanks guys for the confidence boost and for the fun times and friendship!

I won my first match 9-5 against Dana Aft. I didn't play great. I made mistakes and just wasn't confident at all. I did enough to win the match...barely. My second match I played a bit better against Lisa Marr. I got a couple lucky rolls which made up for the few bad misses I made at the end of the rack. I won that one 9-5 as well.

My next match is Friday night at 7:45 pst against Karen Corr. I know that I better start out strong in this one and not make the careless errors that I made today. It will be a battle that is for sure!

So far there aren't any huge upsets. The usuals, Karen, Allison, Jasmin, Xiao-Ting, Ga Young, Monica are all still going strong in the winners bracket. Some of the newcomers have shown that they can play with some upsets over some lower seeded players. I think it is going to be a very interesting tournament!!

I promise to be back with a better post and lots of pictures. For now, it is 3:30 am and I need to attempt to sleep! Damn this 16 hour time difference!
