Destination: Taipei, Taiwan

Hey everyone! I had told so many people all summer I would be starting this blog to keep everyone in the loop with my deaflympic experience. As you all know, I procrasinated until two days before I leave for this amazing adventure. The biggest challenge I had with this blog was coming up with a catchy name. I decided to go with chasing the dream because it describes the adventures I have spent years dreaming and now I have the chance to make it a reality. However, blue bullet is a combination of my favorite color and the first roller coaster I rode: the silver bullet.

I will be in Taiwan to compete in the Deaflympics in the sport of soccer or as the international world likes to say: football. The games start on the 5th of September and go until the 15th. The best way to keep track of the games are through these websites:

the main US deaflympic site:
for a live feed of the games:
for the schedule:

I encourage you all to keep track of it all. I'm #13, if you want to try to find me on the live feed. It is a very exciting time for me. I have been training for this event for two years. The girls on the team are absolutely amazing and I cannot imagine a much stronger team without each individual. Keep us in mind while you go about in your day. Every thought and prayer makes a difference.

I will do my best to keep you all updated while I am in Taiwan with the team. GO USA!
