"When I dance, I'm a free woman, or, rather, a free spirit who can travel through the universe, contemplate the present, divine the future, and be transformed into pure energy. And that gives me enormous pleasure, a joy that always goes far beyond everything I've experienced or will experience in my lifetime." - Paulo Coelho, The Witch of Portobello

the alchemist

"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams."

i've been kind of a bum lately, waking up mostly just to do yoga and some zumbaaa classes. haha. however, today i decided to start a little job searching, for after my summer of camping adventures. i applied for jobs all over the place: chicago, seattle, new york. turns out i have no idea what i want or where i want to be. all i know is that if i'm not helping people, serving people DIRECTLY so that i get to see results, i won't be following my path, finding the magic. i remember realizing in jamaica that constantly learning and serving is the only way i've ever felt fulfilled. i crave it. it's crazy. i can't wait.

follow your heart and you won't get lost

i'm a college graduate! i can't believe this day has actually come, and i'm not just saying that to be cheesy and cliche. until about a week ago, i was hanging by a string, waiting for my grades back from macroeconomics. if i didn't pass that class, i wasn't graduating. and i'm not going to lie, i barely did. but i DID IT. and that's all that matters. i now have a B.A. degree in Psychology. win!

the last couple of weeks have been emotional...well, as emotional as i get. you know. i've made SO MANY new friends in the past year and, in the end, couldn't be happier. i've learned the importance of good friends, and meeting new people who change your life. i'm leaving wisconsin, maybe for the final time, with the most amazing memories and people i love who i know i can always come back to.

but now it's time for a new adventure...TO TEXAS! i'm so excited to be working at the Texas Lions Camp for disabled youth this summer as a wing leader for 9 weeks. i haven't really been to summer camp, as a camper or counselor, since high school. it will be an experience, that's for sure. if the next chapter of my life is as exciting and ridiculous as the last, i couldn't be more excited. xx
