My Year in Review

I've been home in LA for a little over a month now and I'm about to upload my last set of pictures from my year in Petach Tikva - really timely of me, I know - so I thought I'd write a little wrap up post. 

This year I...

1. Broke my 7-year Long Pescatarian Streak
and ate a sh*tload of hot dogs

I'm not necessarily super proud of this, but it's kind of funny if you have a good sense of humor.

2. Became a Poster Child
so...that was cool

There's always going to be someone younger and hotter than you, but until that person participates in ITF Petach Tikva or Rishon, I will remain the reigning poster child. 

3. Survived Living with 6 Other People
and sharing a bathroom with 2 guys and one other girl

Missing Gabriella and Josh the Grown Up
Not an easy feat for any of us but there was never a dull moment in our apartment, that's for sure. 

4. Saw the Light
and became religious

Sorry, I think I'm really funny.

5.Traveled Abroad
to England, Germany, Turkey, and Greece

And I'm hoping to add a few more to the list this upcoming year.

6. Met Some of the Most Wonderful Humans
ranging from my future roommates, to my host teacher and co-fellow, to my students and more...

To say I've been #blessed would be an understatement

7. Had the Cutest Students Ever
and possibly made a difference
Email from one of my amazing special education students
I know I mentioned them in number 6 but when they're this precious you have to give them their own shoutout.

8. Learned a lot About Myself 
and made a pretty drastic life decision accordingly 
City Year and ITF Together as One 
I still can't really believe I've turned down grad school for the time being, but as the wise scholar Selena Gomez said, "The heart wants what it wants." 

So that's it!! I haven't decided yet if I will keep a blog this upcoming year and document my life in Tel Aviv or not, but thank you all for following my adventures this past year. It has been a crazy ride and I cannot wait to see what else is in store for me.
