You see -- through my school we have this fantastic opportunity to go to Mexico for a practicum tour. It costs a God awful amount - but you get to see amazing places and help needy children. The point of it is to get an idea of how the things that we've been learning are being applied in a real life setting -- plus the bonus of total cultural immersion.
I. Want. To. Go.
Alas -- money is tight, and I've sketched this Mexico Practicum into my plans for my diploma year -- it will be a "graduation gift" to myself. But -- one of my school mates, a pretty spunky little lady, is going. I'm jealous. I'm so jealous that I'm worried her plane is going to fall out of the sky. It's bad.
She's blogging about it. She's called her blog Experiences in a Life Time. I'm incredibly jealous. You see...before she started blogging about all of the wonderful places she'll be going to, and things she was going to see, and even the casita that they're staying in (by the way -- casita in that sentence is just dripping with my jealous sarcasm....) before all that, I was fine with it. Sure, I'd really like to be going now, but I was very apathetic about the whole thing.
Now...I know what I'm missing.
