Ecuador Series 3 out of 4

Saying that this program was absolutely NON-STOP seems inadequate. We truly had 0 time to think about anything other than the activity or class for that given day. After arriving home from Tiputini at 7:00 PM, I immediately did laundry (because I honestly felt ashamed to walk into my host family’s house smelling as repugnant as I did) and then started to repack because my family wanted to take me to another city in Ecuador the following morning called Baños (no not the bathrooms, but yes I was very confused when she first told me).

NOVEMBER MONTHLY FAVORITES

The month of giving thanks! This is my absolute favorite time of year; there’s just something about the excitement of Christmas shopping, decorating for Christmas, oh and of course spending an entire day shoving turkey and mashed potatoes down your throat!

Treat yo’ self

I find it hard to take time out of my day, or even my week to relax and do something for myself. Whether it be 15 minutes to do a face mask and listen to some music or 45 minutes to take a bath, focus on my breathing, and enjoy the silence, nine times out of ten I prioritize school or work or other people before I prioritize me and my mental health.
