|The great thing about beignets is that they come in an order of three for just $2.43. What a bargain!|
Love Moves presentation of a room they set up to to be similar to Haiti. They had a Haitian church which consisted of wooden benches under a blue tarp, huts and tents that represented where people live, and different comparisons between American things like meals, closets full of clothes, drinking water, to these same things in Haiti. It was eye-opening to say the least. It's so easy for me to get so focused on what's right here in front of me that I easily forget there's a whole world of people out there whose living conditions are so different. There were different facts and statistics scattered throughout the presentation regarding Haiti and it was truly heartbreaking. I walked away with such a privileged mentality for life here in America. Again, the week was amazing and such a great way for me to be recharged and refreshed!
Side notes- I am officially enjoying less then a month left of summer break...(I'm in the denial stage right now)
I've had a two week hiatus from grad classes; the first 2 ended well and next 2 are underway. These will overlap with the start of school which will likely make for a very crazy, busy start to the year.
