I’d like all who follow to know a few things.
1 – I have been accepted to and will be attending the Marshall School of Business at USC. I have also been granted a scholarship by USC’s Swim With Mike organization. I am beyond blessed and eternally grateful for the opportunity to extend my education and deviate slightly in my adventure. I am, by blood, a UCLA Bruin. I will forever remain loyal to the UCLA Athletics program, being that they bestowed me with the same two opportunities back in 2006. My heart will forever beat for the UCLA Football program, and on Bruin gamedays, you can count on my attendance. I’ll be there wearing blue and gold. But Marshall seemed like the best fit for my interests and situation, so I am following my gut and following in the footsteps of a great Bruin, and my former ball coach, Rick Neuheisel. (B.A. UCLA, J.D USC)
2. I am writing a book. It will take a good amount of time as I firmly believe in doing things right the first time. I am a whore for efficiency. I think it will be a great story and an enjoyable read and I will keep all posted on its progress.
3. My leg has yet to heal. I have what is called a non-union in my femur. Simply put…its not going to heal on its own. Two weeks ago, I underwent a very invasive procedure, in which bone marrow was extracted from my right (good) femur, and transplanted as bone graft in the fractures of my left femur. Hoping this does the trick. Femur is still infected…the infection will not die off until the bone is completely healed. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Thank you for your support. I am eternally grateful and promise to pay it forward.
