So, this is my first ever blog post so here it goes! It is 13 days until we go to Chile. I am super excited, but also nervous at the same time. I have never been away from home for more then 5 days and now I am about to go away for 3 weeks. It's crazy! I am a person who likes to stay in my comfort bubble and my goal for the year was to do different activities and experiences in which they push myself outside of my comfort bubble. This experience is one of those events.
This experience will be life changing. I am hoping to learn more about myself. I am hoping it will help me to become a better teacher, student, and life long learner. There are so many aspects of the trip I am excited for the: geography, culture, food, meeting new friends, and the experience in itself.
Last Monday, during class we were assigned different jobs for the trip. I will be the class's Navigator. My job is helping the group find their way around the city. I will map out the ways to get to different activities, this can be either with walking or public transportation. I feel like I will be great at this job because I have a strong sense a direction. I actually get it from both my mom and my dad. I also am very good at following directions once I am given them either from another person or in written form.
13 days from now I will be in Chile!!!!
