The latest DU abroad blog, Find your Alp, activates my feelings and memories in a special way. Just one year ago, I was walking to class alongside a hill that faced rainforests, mountains, and jungles. Today, I would be getting ready to travel to the Caribbean side of Costa Rica to stay in a hammock for the weekend. The explanation of self discovery and self proclamation is something I appreciate the most and can relate to on a deeper level. Such discoveries are the small hopes of light that are currently getting me through the last few weeks of this Fall quarter. Cheers to the unexplainable memories that are cultivated through studying abroad and get us through the reality of our lives here.
