Change Yourself…Change The World.

An Apology Post is Required

Hi friends,

Well, as I was wallowing in self-pity the past few days, my Auntie Debbie kind of gave me the kick in the butt I needed. She posted on my site and reminded me of all of the amazing opportunities I have in front of me. There are people who are fighting for their lives from Leukemia and Cancer. What about Patrick Swayze’s family, who has to deal with his sad passing? Every face that I see in LaCarpio (the slums in San Jose) remind me that I should not complain about the fact that I am 21 years old, traveling the world, and about to graduate with a kickass bachelor’s degree. What I’ve really been moaning about is the fact that I am overwhelmed with too much amazing information, that I have TOO much to learn, that I am oh-so-tired from applying to Fulbright and Rotary grants for this Kiva fellowship program or the Peace Corp, or to all of these competitive programs that will make my future even more amazing. There are people all over the world that would do anything to be able to even learn how to read.

Time to pack up the pity party and look at all of the amazing opportunities that I have in front of me. I am in Costa Rica, Latin America! I am going to Panama this weekend. I am staying with a homestay family and learning Spanish. I am constantly meeting new people and doing new things. I don’t know how I can possibly even mutter one negative sentence about my life under my breath when I have so many things going for me. No more whiny pity posts, I promise. Thanks for keeping me in check and keeping it in perspective. We all need it once in awhile.

Much love,
