>It's my last week living in DC :( How could it already almost be the end of such an amazing chapter in my life? I feel like just yesterday I was trying to pack my life for 3 months into two suitcases... and now I am wrapping up my last Monday here... with most likely three suitcases.

I'm not thinking about this being my last week because it'll go by too fast and I'm not ready for it to be over. There is so much I still want to do and things to see... more of a reason to visit in the future. SO much has changed in my life, but I have learned so much about myself, the ecotourism sector and that you can't plan how things are going to pan out - and most importantly, time heals.

Luckily, I get to continue my summer adventures with Sunriver for a week and San Fran for a week. Then I will eventually make my way back to Bellingham... slowly, but surely.

I'm living up my last week here and cheering on the USA in the Olympics!
