My time at the local refugee center is coming to a close. Since January, I have been slowly but surely completing my 50-hour pre-field placement for the social work curriculum. I've posted about some of my experiences here and I have truly learned a lot from working with this agency.
This weekend, I visited the town my father grew up in to spend time with my grandmother. Since she is turning 99 years old, we wanted to make sure we could celebrate together.
I went hiking last week with my roommate Isabelle and her cousin Will. Since he is a Harrisonburg-native, he took us to a spot close by that rewarded us with a beautiful waterfall at the end of an hour and a half long hike.
One of my favorite ways to practice Spanish is to listen to music. With a good beat and a catchy melody, vocabulary and grammar comprehension is easier to learn when paired with music.
Disney World was unsurprisingly a wonderful experience. Even though it was only 4 days, it was the perfect amount of vacation time to re-energize before I return to JMU for the summer semester.
