Sometimes we all do things we regret. This week I did a few, or maybe just one.
I didn’t tell my parents I was going to Mexico.
They freaked out after not hearing from me for days. My mom called the Cornell Police Department to report me missing. It was a fiasco.
But I don’t regret going to Mexico. It was pretty much amazing.
I seem to have anxiety attacks prior to flying, but luckily I had delicious Ghiradelli Chocolate from Foodbuzz Tastemakers to calm me down. Definitely don’t regret eating those.
I also don’t regret spending my fall break doing research.
I met interesting people.
Tried interesting things… like Pozol… Corn and Cocoa beans milled together, then made into a dough that is then dissolved in water to make a thick drink.
I definitely thought I would regret drinking that after I saw where the water came from.
Also saw some crazy things
Saw thought provoking things
and some really beautiful things
and in the end, I’m glad I went.
Let’s hope our report isn’t a complete failure. I’m thoroughly concerned for a whole slew of reasons I really don’t want to get into.
Let’s just say, sometimes I think I care a little too much.
