Coming into this week, I would have told you that I was the odds-on underdog to win that HoH competition! I have never won anything ‘physical’ in my life… and I should have been the first one to fall off of “Dizzy Land”… but now I understand the power of back-against-the-wall adrenaline and sheer strength of will and heart.
It is an amazing thing to realize firsthand just how much potential is locked within each of us if we abandon the limiting ideas that we cling to about what we aren’t capable of achieving.
Strategically, I have so very much to say, but I am going to wait until I get out to touch on that any further. I plan to release a series of strategy analysis blogs in October detailing my mindset and strategy throughout this Big Brother season. For now, the end is near… and all I can think about is how much I miss the people in my life… so I would like to use this space for a series of open letters.
You have no idea how much I miss you… I think about you every minute of every day and am counting down the days until I get to see you! Thanks for the new maroon beanie… I love it… and that green one was getting ratchet!! I’m so proud of you for working out every day. That’s way better than I have been doing… but I guess I need to step up my game now because I’m going to see you in just over three weeks!!
I’m also super happy to hear that you are working on producing some music of your own. I can’t wait to listen to what you have put together, baby!!!
Also, you should hook up the Pioneer CDJs to the DJM mixer in the studio and watch YouTube video tutorials on using that setup. When I get back, I want you to be ready to DJ some gigs with me ASAP!!! I want you to know that I would have swung around on that HoH ride from hell for another hour and a half just to hear from you.
Knowing that you and Maverick and Bear are out there supporting me means everything to me, and has given me the energy I needed to get through the last few weeks. I agree with you that this experience has sparked both of us to grow as individuals and will also definitely make us stronger as a couple!
I am so very lucky to have you in my life. <3
I have been thinking about you a lot lately, sister. I am wondering how things are going at your new job, and, also, if you are keeping in touch with any of the friends you made in Vegas when you were out there visiting me earlier this year. I want you to know that some of the things you taught me have helped me get through this experience during the tough times. I love you and miss you and can’t wait to hear from you!
I miss you so so so much!!! I am so sad that I haven’t been able to be there for you in planning this wedding!!! However, I want you to know that as soon as I get back I want to hear every detail!!! I’m also curious how things are going with your new job and how nice it must be to finally be done with school!!
Give Kimba a hug for me!!! Love you so much little sister!!!!
I don’t even know where to start… I am the luckiest girl in the world to have had you as a mother. Without the strength of character, integrity, and work ethic with which you raised us, I would never have been able to make it this far into this experience.
It has tested and tried me on every level, and at every fork in the road I have been guided by the echoes of your voice and life lessons that you have imparted to me. I hope that you and Jim were able to enjoy lobster mini-season and that you are reinvigorated for your return to work (which I think is right about now).
Send Jim and the rest of the family my love!
Papa, Barry, and all the rest of my friends and family, I want you to know that I miss you all a great deal and can’t wait to see you soon!
As a lifelong game enthusiast, I want you to know that this is—hands down—the greatest game that I have ever encountered, and possibly the greatest game out there, period! I had no idea just how much strategy would be involved, nor how much I would be challenged philosophically, psychologically, and intellectually along the way.
I feel so very very blessed to have been able to take on this challenge.
