FAST THOUGHTS FROM JESSICA LEE

A Little Bit Of News On My Crazy Life
Hey guys, I know I haven’t written in a while but thats only because I have been incredibly busy!

Just last weekend I graduated from highschool! I was actually very surprised to learn that I would be graduating as the salutatorian of my graduating class with a 4.5 GPA. Walking up on stage to get my diploma as the salutatorian felt very good. On top of all of that I graduated a whole year early! It was a lot of hard work but it all paid off. Now I can get back into the normal groove of things like racing more often! Although I have been out of highschool for a short time, I have kind of thought about the good things I’ve done and the mistakes I’ve made. Looking back, I think I would have focused a little bit more on getting my work done instead of making sure I trained like a maniac. I was no doubt a procrastinator most of the time because the only thing in the back of my mind was something with two wheels. Yes, racing kept me a little bit pre-occupied but like I have said before, it has kept me out of trouble. Riding my dirtbike was one of the only escapes for me and still is. I have never had the urge to drink or do any type of drug. In my eyes, they will only put a handicap on my riding capabilities so why in the world would I want to deal with that? At times, I may not have had a bus load of friends because I didn’t go with the flow but I am way better off now!

Besides highschool, something even cooler that happened recently was my house on MTV Teen Cribs! It aired for the first time back on April 22nd and has been re-airing almost every week. MTV shot the house for their new spin off of the original Cribs called Teen Cribs. It was so much fun to do a tour of the house and to have MTV at my place. Hopefully you all watched it or are going to watch it. Soon I will post the video or a link to it.

You might be asking so Jessica since you’re out of school, what are your next plans? Well for now, I am trying to get into Rollins College down here in Florida. I want to major in journalism and TV broadcasting. I was also offered an internship with Research Media Group out of Alexandria, VA to cover political news. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the group, they are the watchdog for the media and help keep the politicians in line. The internship would give me the opportunity to cover news on Capital Hill, the pentagon, the White House and any other major political spot. It will be a very educational and amazing opportunity.

I just saw that Jorge Lorenzo took the pole position today at Mugello; very surprising to me! tomorrow's race should be more than exciting!
