One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was 22, I joined an organization called AmeriCorps NCCC. For 10 months, I traveled around with a team of people my age and did community service work. Our team name: Silver 6, made up of 4 boys and 8 girls.

We lived together, worked together, ate together, slept in the same rooms together, breathed the same air. We got up early in the morning to do 45 minutes of physical training, followed by an 8 - 10 hour day of work. Whether it was tutoring, building a house, cleaning a park, or feeding the homeless, we did it as a team.

In 10 months we visited California, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, and Nevada.

It was stressful. It was frustrating. Some days, it was utter hell. 10 months of the same people 24/7? Constant physical activity in freezing cold or blistering heat? An extreme lack of privacy? GAAHH!!

But when you ask me about it, I'll definitely say this: it was the best and worst job of my life. I made some of the best friends of my life during those 10 months. I love and miss my team and they will be in my heart forever.

Teach, Learn, Share

Look out for hot dogs mysteriously showing up in pastries in Korea or Japan. When I was in Fuokoka, Japan, I was eating at a Mister Donut. I had grabbed what looked like a fruit pastry. It was in fact a fruit pastry, but when I bit into it, there also happened to be a hot dog inside. It didn't taste horrible....it was just a strange thing to encounter.
