And more than anything, I cannot wait to be in Guatemala in just two and a half weeks! How did this happen?? Where did time go??? Not only will I get to see Kat in person again, but I get to experience something that I'm sure will be eye opening and life changing. I'm excited to eat the food, meet new people, experience the culture, practice my Spanish, and generally just be my awkward self in a new country. I can't help but feel extremely thankful for all the great opportunities provided by my wonderful family and school. Without both I'd be spending just another summer at the GC, and don't get me wrong, a lot of time will still be spent there, but never in a million years would 5 years ago me have believed that I am about to spend a month in Guatemala. So thanks parents and Wheaton, you rule. So, even though it's muggy and rainy out, and the Blend has the most awful blend of songs ever, I'm feeling slightly ok with it all knowing that I get to be reunited with some great people, watch some very accomplished women receive Bachelors Degrees, and fly off to Latin America all within the next few weeks. I'd say that's pretty decent.
Other than feeling super lucky, my life has been relatively lazy. I've rewatched an insane amount of Glee, scooped plenty of popcorn for the always chipper public, and read a couple of books. I call that a success. I did make a quick venture to Worcester yesterday for a tour of the women's shelter that I'll be volunteering at. It's actually much bigger than I expected and seems like a really great organization. It's located in a kind of grungy part of Worcester but luckily they have a parking lot right behind the building so it's allll gooood. Side note, I'd just like to publicly thank Katie for the text "Good luck and don't get shot" from that day. Wiser words have never been typed. Anyways, that's about it for me. I shared a lovely breakfast with Jessica, Julie, and Katie this morning and am now off to be productive with my day. ha maybe.
