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.

Big mistake.

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.

    Glad to have a post from you! I’ve often lamented, “I wish I could care less!” And I really meant it, but now I see how much the world needs people who care more! You go girl! Don’t hold yourself back! People will constantly underestimate you! (It is all part of the game!)

    I bet she was maaaad.

    But I’m glad you had a fun trip and got to travel. Most of all, I’m happy you’re back safe. Mexico is pretty crazy these days. What part of Mexico did you go to again?

    Oh Mexico!!! Love the photos! Ha, my parents would freak out too if they didn’t know where I were.
    Seeing your photos makes me want to go to Costa Rica RIGHT NOW! I know I won’t be leaving until January and I know that Mexico isn’t the same but still.. Central America! I need some Spanish! I need warmth! 🙂

    Good luck with your report. I know that it’s going to be stellar. (yep I do). 🙂
