Spring break: a post-midterm week of relief where university students are free to tell their Netflix accounts, “Yes, I am still watching,” without feeling guilty about procrastinating amid a seemingly endless flood of schoolwork. But every year, about 40 students use their week of freedom to engage with communities in need while receiving hands-on education through the SEEDS Project.

Hurricane Katrina. It seems like forever ago that I remember seeing the news about the devastation of New Orleans, watching the news and seeing people getting rescued from the roofs of their houses and seeing almost the entire city filled with water.
When University of Richmond students arrived at the medical clinic on their first day in Pampa Grande, Peru, there were at least 20 Peruvians waiting by the door.

I've finally been outted by an online comment (don't we just love www.thecollegianur.com?) - I'm not really from Compton. My name just "grants me access to a pun," and to be honest, I didn't actually know who N.W.A. was. But whatever, we'll just call it irony that I actually come from the Midwest. I mean, St. Louis (my real hometown) is up there in standing, as far as rap music goes (until he semi-fell off the face of the earth, who didn't love Nelly? And J-Kwon and Chingy were clearly so legit). But I digress.

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Because of my weekly travels and studious nature, I have been a bit behind reporting my adventurous activities abroad. I have failed to skip (or finish) my action-packed spring break with the Extreme Adventures One Fish, Two Fish trip. I could write pages of my nine-day adventure traveling the western coast of Oz and had every intention of reporting all of my quirky encounters and detailed experiences, but I just realized that my spring-break journal is nearly seven pages single-spaced and could just about be considered a short story. I shall try to keep it to a minimum and will accept questions after.
MELBOURNE, Australia -- With the $2.00 of remaining balance I have on my Global Gossip internet card, all I can say is that my Extreme Adventure spring break has been just that, extreme. The rainforest walk this afternoon is the last of the organized tours on my One Fish, Two Fish trip, but I have made more memories in these past nine days, then I thought I would. In three days alone, I went white water rafting on the Tully River, jumped out of a plane at 14,000 feet, bungee jumped at 50 m and scuba dived in the Great Barrier Reef. I also bronzed at one of the top three beaches in the world and sailed the Atlantic in a multi-million dollar boat. Oh gosh, I have less than 5 minutes of credit remaining, but more to come when I get home in 2 days, pictures and all!
