Well I'm sorry I haven't updated for a while, I've been quite busy travelling and when I come home I'm quite exhausted. Anyways, I arrived home in Toronto on monday and I have been here since. Well since I've got come back I've been busy with a few interviews to promote the upcoming Olympic games. It was long, but in the end it was definitely worth it since I had great people around me and it made it all very fun. Now I just came back from the Grand Prix Final in Seoul, Korea on monday and it was one of the longest trips I've taken. But I thankfully don't have anymore competitions overseas, since from the national championships onwards I'll only be travelling within North America. This also means I won't have to struggle with long flights as well as the big time difference from home. Even though I'm speaking of this, I actually didn't have much of a problem going to Korea and it had nothing to do with the way I skated. I unfortunately didn't have the best skate and there isn't anything I can blame it on. All I know is that we all have bad days and good days, I'm just glad it happened at this competition and not at the world championships. Or even at the Olympics! One thing I was happy about was that I kept fighting through the competition until the last moment of my program. And in the end, like a friend once told me, regret it and forget it. I already got what I wanted so far this season by winning both my international Grand Prix competitions. I look forward to the National Championships in Saskatoon since it's always a confidence and motivational booster for me. There are many more competitions to be won and I look forward to it! Wish you all the best and thanks for visiting my website.

I went to the GPF and watch all of your performance. Even though you could not show your best, I was really impressed with your skating. I could feel your strong will as well as your emotion and artisary. You are such a fighter!
It's so lucky to hear that you do not need to travel for a long time in the remaining season. Please take a good rest and enjoy holidays, even though you have to set for the Nationals.

Yes, you always keep fighting until the last moment! I love your strength ; )

I always think that skaters are great travelers. Did you recover from the fatigue of your long trip? I hope you get the best condition for Nationals and skate the best performance as your heart desires. You are moving ahead step by step. That's great! I'm so proud of you.
Have a lovely X’mas & a happy birthday! And all the best for the coming New Year!

i'm not an expert in skating, but u skate in a way that is so mesmerizing. i love your program with the rachmaninoff concerto. he's one of my favourite composers=) u've inspired me to learn that concerto, and renew my passion for music.
can't wait till you come to vancouver for the 2010 olympics. just thought i'd send you some encouragement, because everyone needs some uplifting once in a while. wish you all the best, now and forever.

Congrats on your 2nd title! It was well deserved. And you were right when you said we were all doing that 3xl with you because I know I was during both performances. You've done us proud!

I'm so happy I got to see you live! Sitting front row at the middle of the rink. Yay!

Hi Patrick,
You were great during the Four Continents. Thank you for trying so hard and winning medals for Canada.

Your skating has captuured my eyes the first time I saw it. You are the best skater I've ever seen, and I am not joking. I really like the fact that you are always smiling and trying your best. Your footwork is great and your jumps are always so clean and graceful.

I'll be cheering you on in Toronto!

I saw you at the ISU four continents today! I can't believe I even talked to you.
You were absolutely amazing!
