I can’t believe how quickly time has passed, it feels like just a few weeks ago i told everyone I was taking part in this experience, and now in less than a month i’m going to be there. At first i was having some negative feedback from my family but they’ve come around after seeing how much i want to do this, its great to finally have their support. I’m nervous and excited at the same time, but the pre-trip classes we have had have eased some of my concerns.
     The semester is finally winding down and i can focus all my attention to this trip. I can’t wait to get down there and help people and learn new things everyday. I know that watching films does the city no justice. Can’t wait to see what NOLA has to offer.
