I think God has taught me a lot this summer about life. I have learned how to really live and thrive in the moment and not worry about anything else. I have learned how to take advantage of the extremely limited time I have here in Hawai`i and with my local friends. I think it's something that's definitely going to transfer over into how I live my life back in the Bay and in SLO. In addition, I think I've gained more courage and have been released from a lot of fear and apathy by embracing this "carpe diem" lifestyle; laid-back though it may be.
It's going to suck leaving this island.
