Hey guys! It has been ages since I have had a chance to write anything to you. But I will update to the best of my abilities. Right now we are on our fourth and final project in AmeriCorps NCCC and I must admit I am a little saddened by it. It's nice to be back together with Water 4, though! I have missed them tons! Since being in Big Bend we have been doing many different projects, most of which is trail maintenance. We have been using lots of different tools and such to get the work done. I have become an expert at using a pick-matic which is pretty cool. We went on our first hitch (multi-day camping excursion in the mountains) where we hiked up to Emory Peak which is over 7,000 feet. We have been repairing the new trail and getting it all nice and smooth for the hikers. We camp in tents and we cook our food on camping stoves. I feel like a real wilderness camper. I haven't showered in DAYS!!! I haven't seen a mirror in ages and I am betting that I have a face full of hair and can't wait to shave it off. HAHA! Time is dwindling pretty fast here and it will soon be time for graduation. I can't wait to see my family and friends; I haven't seen anyone from home since I joined in October. I have been very focused on my life after AmeriCorps and I have been accepted to serve with City Year New York as a Corps Member. They also called me back to interview me for a Senior Corps Team Leader! I am glad that I have something to transition to after the program is over. I can't wait! For now, later!!!
