I just got accepted into the Peace Corps so I'm counting down until
June 19th when I arrive in Panama to begin my 27 month period of
service. It's a long time and commitment, but it's a huge
international learning and personal growth opportunity which is why

even more this year!
My weekly relaxation hobby is salsa dancing in Syracuse, it's great
fun plus I have a lot of friends there. New Zealand and the
Caribbean are on my must- visit list of places to go in my life.
Other than that my plans are to be active and enjoy life as fully
as is humanly possible.
At the end of every year, I love being able to look back at the
memories and the photos of the year and know in my heart that I

letting another year just go irreversibly down the proverbial
