First, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Our two-week break is nearing the end and I am very excited to get back to the Denver campus tomorrow. It was great to see family and friends for the holidays. I can’t forget to mention how great it was to have Chicago deep dish pizza again. The break was really enjoyable especially after coming off of the emotional project in Louisiana. I definitely cherish what I have a lot more because of that experience. I am looking forward to getting back to my team. It’s funny because we took a two-week break from each other but we have all been talking a lot during the break. It shows how well our team is getting along.
We will be heading to Tucson, Arizona next week where it will be nice and warm unlike here in Chicago. I tried to freshen up on my math skills over break since we will be doing taxes. Sadly, I am excited to do taxes because Finance was one of my majors in college. I have been looking up information about United Way which is the organization we will be working with and I have found nothing but good things. I know our team will exceed all expectations on the project with their help.
I can’t wait! I don’t know what 2010 has in store for me. But, I do know that the AmeriCorps NCCC experience will make this next year one to remember for all of us.
