Summer Plans Part Two

Looks like my summer plans have changed! It's not so much for the better or worse, but I'm VERY excited about what's in store! If all goes as planned, I will be...

...going to Gallaudet for 3 or 4 weeks to take some courses! One of my professors found a summer course series and basically told me that I'm going. I had to immediately and whole heartedly agree! I am SO excited for the opportunity! I am absolutely overwhelmed when I think about it! Hopefully my amazing friend, Kat, can go with me as well. Our friend Kati will be going there in the Fall to begin her graduate studies and we are all so happy and excited for her! We will only be getting a taste of what is in store for her. Congrats Kati! We're all so proud!

Another amazing upside to this is that I get to spend time with my incredible friend Hannah!  She's getting married in May but I'm sure I'll be able to steal her away from her husband from time to time.  Love this girl!

Next I am trying to put together a month in Costa Rica at a Spanish language school. I used to be pretty good at Spanish and I miss it! I can't take credit for the idea, my lovely friend Sariah will be spending 2 months in Mexico to learn. I totally stole the idea. I think that pretty much sounds incredible!

So, it looks like my summer will be:

Six weeks of summer school
A week in Oregon, interpreting for the snowboard team
Three to Four weeks in DC at Gallaudet
A month in Costa Rica
A cruise to end the summer with my sister and hopefully my friends Jerilyn and Christi

Hooray for adventures!

Thanks so much Rachel! I'm excited. I'm so happy for YOU that you'll be going there during the summer!! You'll have to tell me all about it! That is so super cool! And Costa Rica?? Wow! I wish I was better at Spanish, it would be so good to know! Sounds like everything is falling into place for you, wahoo!!
