Halftime Highlights – and happy birthday to my wonderful parents

When I finally decided I wanted to study abroad, I was in a tight spot financially but because I have only one semester left before I graduate it was imperative that I go this summer. When I went to my parents for advice they never said I couldn’t do it they just told me I was going to have to work for it. And work we did. I pulled extra shifts at work, had fundraisers, and applied for as many scholarships as I could. There were definitely days when I wasn’t sure I could make the cut but my parents urged me on and graciously helped close the gap, and even surpass my goal. Without a doubt I wouldn’t have been able to experience this wonderful country without them and I’m so lucky to have such awesome people in my life.

Anyway I’m in Jordan for my both my parents birthdays so I compiled a highlights reel of my time in Jordan so far. I’m sure they’re going to like it and I hope ya’ll do too so here it is!
