Good Times For A Change

It's 1:17 AM on a school night. What better to do than blog? Let me explain! I took a three hour nap earlier today, tomorrow is the last day of school before Christmas break and there are only approximately 10 days left before I'll be in my Homeland once again. If you were me, you wouldn't be asleep either.

I'm SO incredibly excited for this trip to Tijuana. One of my best friends (the one I went to Promontory Point with for UEA, see the post entitled 'Drive Friendly) is coming with us. I don't know if she'll have the same experience or if she'll even like it. But I know I will be in good company in my favorite place on earth. Some people in my ward have given me things to take down to the orphanage. I CANNOT WAIT TO CROSS THE BORDER!!!

Most people look at me like i have a mental disorder when I say that Tijuana Mexico is where I'm most at home. But if they could see the look in the eyes of the kids at the orphanage just to have someone to play with and give them attention. If they could serve people they had never met before with their own two hands and look at those strangers and see nothing but love and gratitude coming from them. If they could see the caliber of joy in the lives of the people living in the humblest of circumstances, I think they'd change their minds.

Today I had a Mexican coke. I've been counting down the days starting when there were 56 left. I went to a Spanish branch last week with my Hermana. I've worn something from Mexico every Wednesday this year (besides the Wednesday's in December because I've worn a Christmas sweater everyday so far). I think it's safe to say that I'm a little excited for December 26-January 2nd :)
