Just Around the River Bend...

Okay guys my summer is gearing up to be a wild and crazy one, no matter how you look at it.  I thought I'd drop in to my increasingly disused blog to let y'all know what I'm doing.

In my applications (and preparations for another round of them), I've decided to really beef up my extracurriculars this summer.  Although I seriously have the BEST job ever, I have decided I may need to take a break from it in order to pursue some other goals.  In lieu of working, I'll be spending (but spending responsibly, mind you).  I am going to Haiti.

This is not a vacation.  This will be a humanitarian aid trip with an organization called Sustain Haiti, which works mostly through BYU.  The scary thing is, this trip will leave me poor and without a job when I return.  It would be much easier to work my very sick-awesome job all summer, and then have a fat paycheck to spend on post-baccalaureate classes.  However, I don't get a lot of chances to get out of America and do a little good, so I think I'm gonna take this one.  Every once in a while, life gives you a chance to make some real changes.  I hope this is one of them.  It seems a little crazy to just drop everything and go, but sometimes that's what you have to do.  Wish me luck!

Exciting opportunity, and I think it's awesome you're going. But does this mean you're going to miss the Grandma Betty celebration at Bear Lake?

Sounds like an epic adventure (hopefully we can still squeeze in our annual summer rock climbing escapade)! Welcome back to the blogging world, SC.

Crave, Tickets to Haiti are probably cheaper through San Antonio. You should come visit on your way there.
