A second Buck-I-Serv trip in the books for this year’s Spring Break. This time, I had the opportunity to volunteer at Focus:HOPE in Detroit, Michigan with three students. We might have been small, but we were certainly mighty!
This year, I chose to be an advisor for one of the Buck-I-Serv (Ohio State’s alternative break service learning trip) experiences and I’m so glad I did. This wasn’t an opportunity I got to do while I was in undergrad, which is why I wanted to be a part of this.
PSA: My featured photo isn’t mine. I downloaded it from Ohio State Student Life’s Twitter (@StudentLifeOSU) because it was a perfect photo for this first post. I am in this photo, it’s just very hard to find me. OSU, please don’t sue me.
Move across the country, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. Well guess what… it has actually been a fun journey, thus far. Check on me in late November when temperatures have fallen below 40 degrees and I see a temperature California has never seen.
Moving out of my UCLA home marked the end of the UCLA journey, and that still feels weird to say.
FIRST THING: Photo Credits to Idriss Njike for this beautiful aerial shot of my Hitch community.
It’s so easy to fall behind when life catches up with you. The great thing about the week between Christmas and New Year’s is that it’s the week of confusion. How much sleep should we get? Is this the week we are actually excused from doing work? Perhaps the suggestion on social media called, “The Christmas Purge,” where everything is excused? Because if that’s so, I’m excused for not allowing people to catch up on my life for nearly 3 months.
