What Had Happened Was… | February & March

February and March have been easy and consistent work months. Nothing too crazy has happened. What Had Happened Was…


~Since I was sick in January I lost my mixed Adult English Class, but that’s okay because I started a new class for women!

~We got IYF started! IYF (International Youth Foundation) has a ‘Passport to Success’ program which teaches youth various life skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, health issues, etc.

~ I learned how to make homemade bread. This picture is a fail but with practice, I will get better.


~Valentine’s weekend, my boyfriend came to visit me and we made Valentine’s Day cards with my high school students.


~ We got so much snow we didn’t have electricity for about 40 hours.

~ I decorated my house! House tour video TBA!




~I finished the entire show of “The Flash”, “Arrow”, and “Avatar: The Last Airbender.”

~I hennaed my hair. It’s barely noticeable so sorry no pictures :(

~I met the new volunteer that will be replacing Anna, my closest volunteer. Nina loved her host family and is enthused to work in her new home for 2 years.

~I absolutely love the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ soundtrack and in looking up more music from some of the artists, I stumbled upon the artist, Gorgon City. IN LOVE!!!!

~Traveled up north to help DJ get some items from a COS-ing volunteer. I got some goodies myself. I got a blender, coffee maker, spices, coconut oil, etc.

~I went to see the waterfalls and picnicked with my students.

~Created my vision/inspiration boards:


~Apparently, my allergies act up even in the desert. I’mĀ glad I have these:


~We re-opened the Nedi Neswi. Hopefully, I can work there again soon.

TR3mendous Love,
