It’s almost that time of the year again…CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH (September). This year I want to spread awareness in a different way than last year. I want EVERYBODY to go out and buy some GOLD FINGERNAIL POLISH and PAINT YOUR FINGERNAILS GOLD to spread awareness. Take pics of your GOLD and post them on ALL social media sites to SPREAD AWARENESS FOR THE KIDS! I want to see how many of you will SHOW OFF YOUR GOLD. Childhood cancer is real and it has affected me and many of my amazing friends. WILL YOU SPREAD THE WORD WITH US???
I have been away from Tumblr for WAY too long! Between graduating with a major in Finance and a minor in Spanish, to being accepted into graduate school, to moving to Savannah, GA for school…life has been amazingly overwhelming! But with all of that being said, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is right around the corner (September)!!!! With me pursuing a Master’s in Public Administration with a concentration in Nonprofit Management, my goal is to ADVOCATE AND EDUCATE FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS! #GoGold! You will definitely be seeing more posts from me from now on!

Hola! Well I just wanted to tell a little story of my adventures in on our first trip in Nicaragua. We journeyed out from Bluefields by boat to Big Corn Island. The boat takes about 5 hours to cross over the open sea. I personally didn’t get sick or scared, but others did. Guess I have tough skin! However, where we were sitting we did get a little wet. From Big Corn Island we took a speed boat (about 15 mins) to Little Corn Island. Little Corn is definitely catered for tourists. In Little Corn I went snorkeling, horseback riding, and explored the island. Not to mention I tried local food such as rundown, which is like a caribbean stew. To say that the island and the clear blue waters were beautiful is definitely an understatement. It was definitely MAGNIFICENT. Not to mention everyone was so nice and welcoming. The ride back to Bluefields, however, was the most terrifying experience of my life! The boat left at around 11pm that night and we were in for a treat. IT STARTED STORMING. Now I would call the boat that we were on a boat more catered for cargo. There were limited seats and the seats that they did have were not secure. They did have hammocks that you can lay in, but I was definitely not doing that! It was cold, dark and raining. The waves were coming into the boat. Literally the boat was tilting side to side and people were sliding. It was so scary. So much water got into the boat that they had to stop it for a while to use buckets to empty out the water. The ride that usually takes about 5 hours took about 7 hours. It was truly an experience that I will remember for sure. Let’s just say that I do not think that boats will not be in my plans in the near future!! *It’s all a part of the International Extravaganza*
