But I'd also like to tell you a little bit more about my St. Michael's experience. There's a lot of aspects about St. Mike's that I love. I've had the opportunity to get quite involved, and meet some of the most fantastic, influential people in my life. I mentor a great little guy named Nate as a part of the Little Brother/Little Sister Program through the M.O.V.E. Office, and I also help coordinate the program with a great bunch of other motivated, generous people. You can read about one of my fellow LBLS Coordinator's own study abroad experience here in Mike Jablonski's New Zealand blog.
I've also had the chance to play a little tennis for St. Mike's as a member of the Men's Tennis Team. I've been playing for a lot of years, and played for my high school, and so continuing my athletic career seemed like the right choice for me. I love tennis and opportunity to be a part of a team, even thought he travel can get crazy and stressful. And whether or not I continue to play tennis after my time abroad, the experience is one I am very grateful for.
So for now, I'll said adios, and will let you know more about how the preparations for Spain are going. Hopefully my Visa comes though.
No Spain, no gain.
