I've been in London for a few days, and now it's time to go on vacation! It's been a long season and it will be good to get away from soccer for a few weeks. Me and Celia are headed to Morocco, so I doubt that there will be any blog posts up during the holiday. I'm not even bringing a computer with me. I'll try to put up one or two video updates, but I don't know if I'll be able to upload them. I'm also gonna do a little travel article about each city we visit. My hope is to then send those stories to various newspapers in the UK and America and be signed on as a freelance travel writer. If I write well enough, I might just get to spend my offseason flying around the world writing about travel. That's the dream!
So with that I'm gonna begin a bit of radio silence. Most likely there won't be any posts between now and Nov. 9 when I get back. And if I do post something, it's likely to just be a video and not some informative post.
See ya later!

Now I’m no rocket scientist, but you don’t have to be to know what these pictures imply.

|I've very recently re-discovered GIFs. They will be a staple of this blog in the future so deal with it.|

In unrelated news, I got home after training tonight just in time to watch some guy named Felix Baumgartner do a skydive-type jump from the edge of outer space. I have absolutely no idea why anyone would want to do something like this, and I was nervous just watching him open the door to his little capsule. You couldn't convince me to jump down a flight of stairs, nevermind out of a small space capsule. I don't really have anything to say about the space jump, other than that Mr. Baumgartner is insane.

It’s been a few days now since our draw with HJK. Things have been going well with me, as this game was something of a coming out party for me. For the first time since I got to Finland I’m starting to be known a bit. Of course I’m by no means an established player in this league, but I can guarantee that our next opponents know my name now. Another cool thing is that I was interviewed for a magazine that covers the league (I’m not 100% sure of the name so I won’t put it just yet). It’s always nice to be appreciated. Between the trust that the coach showed me, the appreciation from the fans during the match and now some media attention, I’m quite happy with how the last week has gone. I’m too cool for school now. I’ll be walking around Valkeakoski with sunglasses even if it’s raining! J

EDIT: I'm including a YouTube video as well since it shows the incident much more clearly than my cameraphone.
