Trip to Huatulco

I had a wonderful weekend trip with the other ILP teachers to Huatulco. It was all planned very last minute but probably one of my favorite trips. We got to relax on the beach, eat great food, snorkel and really bond as a group. My time here is ending soon but I love it here soo much and the vacations are awesome!!

All the time I try to make goals but I especially try to make goals while living abroad. Living in Ukraine and Mexico have been the biggest learning and growing experiences. Something that has helped me is making goals and accomplishing them.

Since my time is quickly ending here I want to make more goals. Here are some of my new goals that I hope to accomplish:

1. To try new things. Everyday try something new and go out of my comfort zone. Whether talking with more people in spanish or trying a new food.

2. Live everyday to the fullest. Change up my daily routine. Do something fun everyday, spend time with friends do fun things.

3. Continue to grow spiritually. Read scriptures everyday, continue to have group fhe, try to be even better everyday.

4. Take lots of pictures. Take at least one picture everyday to represent that day.

5. Smile and be happy. Think of great things in everyday and smile and enjoy every moment. Laugh at things that are difficult or annoying.

These are my goals. I want to really try and make them happen. I strongly believe that making goals and accomplishing them makes you and even better person and makes your life experiences that much better!

Things on my mind

1. I need to blog more often. I'm having all these amazing experiences and just forget to write about them. Hopefully I will get into a better habit now that i'm a little bit less busy.

2. I got into two very good colleges but i'm going to have a hard time deciding which one to go to.

3. Speaking Spanish is sometimes more fun than speaking English.

4. I've traveled to lots of wonderful places, learned lots, experienced many things. It's amazing how much you can learn by living in another country and immersing yourself in the culture. Now the difficult thing is deciding what to do next with my life.

5. Living in Mexico is amazing! I love constantly speaking Spanish. I love the warm weather, the freshly made corn tortillas, the kids we teach, the teachers I teach with, etc.

6. The kids here know soo much it's amazing! They sometimes use bigger words than I do.

7. I need to take more pictures here.

8. I will be home in 2 months. My parents visit in 16 days!!

9. Time has flown by soo fast.

Here are some pictures:
