So sorry I just left everyone hanging!
After Move Out Day, life got craaaaazy.
I’m back in my hometown right now,
next week I’m going to San Francisco,
then I’m travelling to San Luis Obispo for a bit,
then back home (& do my dreadlocks, finally)
then off to San Diego,
thennnnnn…. I leave for India!
Yes, India! I’m moving to Ahmedebad for two months to do two things I love: teach and travel! I’ll be living in a small village in Patan and teaching a class of 5th graders. My trip is soon approaching and I’ve almost got everything in order. Send good vibes my way!
As for my RA Job, the day after I return from India, I’m going to an Edward Sharpe concert at the Hollywood Bowl, then the next day I move back into the dorms for Summer Training.
It’s not 100% official yet, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to be in our International House next year, meaning almost all my residents will be International Students! I-House is known for being a difficult place to RA, and it’ll be a total 180flip from this year, but I thought long and hard about it and think it’s the perfect place for me. I know if anybody can do it, I can. And all my coworkers constantly tell me how great I’ll be there. So I have that to look forward to :)
All in all, life is good. I still cannot believe my first year as an RA went so well… and so quickly. I made some amazing friends, had incredible residents, and ended the year with the title of Rookie of the Year. I learned so much about myself, became much more confident/independent, and had some of the best times of my life. Wow.
I loved keeping this blog and will hopefully do the same next year. Thanks for following my adventure as a First Year RA.
Enjoy your Summer and see you in the Fall :)
Peace & Love, friends.
