All that being said I am awaiting word if I will be attending the 2012 US Open Grand Prix Gold and the 2012 Canadian Open Grand Prix beginning of July. After those two tournaments, if I am able to attend them, I will be going back to China for the entire month of August and a bit around 40-45 days in total. I will be going to Guangzhou to train with a different coach, Xiong GuoBao, who has an international training center there. So for 9 hours a day, 6 and a half days a week I will be once again spending my summer in China training hard.
That is everything badminton related happening in my life. Other than that I haven’t really done much else apart from finally being around to take spring classes. There is a weird feeling with all my friends graduating now or have graduated last year, seeing everybody moving forward with their lives. Somehow I feel like I am staying behind even though I am following my dream of trying to go to the 2016 Olympics. Life has an interesting way of playing out though and we will see where the next 4 years take me. 2015 Olympic qualification period will sneak up on me in no time and I have to be ready for them.
