I'm so conflicted.
On one hand I want her to continue to ride the wave of her popularity and make loads of cash with all the off-ice opportunities. Another part of me wants the gravy train to stop, leaving her few options other than to go back to training!
Am I a bad person?!?!?!??

Actually Rock, I feel the same way. This season has just has not been the same for me; for the first time in years I did not really follow skating. II really miss seeing Joannie in competition and I know that nats won't be same without her.

I really wish she was not touring so she would at least go to Worlds, I think she has a great shot of winning but I understand completely why she took this season off.

Joannie is also the cover story on this month's Reader's Digest Canada.

Really great and indepth read on everything that's taken place since Vancouver and also her work w/the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

She seems to relish the role of motivational speaker now? Is that her new occupation?

Spotlight still shines on Joannie Rochette
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/more-sports/spotlight-still-shines-on-joannie-rochette/article1915486/


Rochette has done some speaking engagements for corporate clients in Canada and the United States but those commitments were limited because she does so many skating shows. She's committed to skating tours (Stars on Ice) in the U.S., Japan, South Korea and Canada, and she's done some made-for-television skating shows. She skated at the wedding of 2010 pairs gold medalists Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo in Beijing last June.

She's soooo busy!

I hope she's staying busy for the reason of striking while the iron is hot and not due to needing to stay still enough and going home to face the grief of everything of the last year. I more than understand Joannie wanting to turn what happened to her Mom into something good that will help others and it's wonderful she's doing just that.

I just hope it's not also keeping her from having to go home and face some of the other issues that happen whenever you lose a Parent.

I hope that also makes sense up there, as I wish Joannie nothing but the very best.

I think she's aware that these issues will there and that she'll have to deal with them, which is good because it would suck to be hit with those realizations as they happen without being mentally prepared for them. I watched a special on the Vancouver Olympics last week that marked the 1st year anniversary, and one of the ladies who was there when Joannie heard the news of her mother's passing said that Joannie told her "This is not the worst day of my life. That day will be when she doesn't get to see me on my wedding day or to see my children. This is her Olympics and I will finish the journey we started" (this is me rephrasing from my memory)

She's one of the few people that I always feel has a good head on her shoulders, which makes me admire her even more

DiManno: Rochette turned personal tragedy into a nation’s triumph

Rosie DiManno actually being nice. Hard to believe I know, but I guess she'd just get entirely too much flack if she trashed Joannie.

I think taking the year off to build a nest egg while her popularity is sky high was a really smart move.

We'll never know for sure, but the way most of the ladies are skating this season, I think had she competed, she could have ended the season with a World title.
