Jack talk Thai...

Oh I am so stoked. I leave on June 9th for Thailand! I know I have said it before, but I got my flight schedule (which sucks by the way) and my ticket is bought....that makes it real. I love traveling and have been able to do 2 humanitarian trips and this will be number 3! My life goal is to do work on each continent and so now I have 3 down....we'll keep working on that goal. I got put on the medical committee and we will be doing so many amazing projects. Visit here to find out about youthlinc, the amazing program we are going with that was named as one of the top non-profits to watch.


What is going to be sweet also is that students going from Dixie are going to "diverge", meaning after we have worked our little tails off serving, we are going to do some site seeing for 5 days after:). Lucky for us Thailand is one of the cheapest luxury destinations in the world...wanna see an idea of what our hotel is going to be for about 16 bucks a night per person?? And some of the boat rides you can take?Here is a sampling:

Read your comment in MBP on his most recent, controversial post, and I think I have a twin in St. George, Utah! I actually worked at a hospice for a couple years, "nannied" and volunteered/shadowed several ER physicians.

I am headed towards the medical field myself and graduated with a bachelors in Biology last year. Anyways, you sound really motivated in pursuing your nursing degree, however, I can tell family is your priority (as it should be)- I think MBP is hilarious, but, that #5 went too far... Keep up your aspirations, girl!
