Being sick is the worst thing ever. I had a headache, my entire body ached, and the fireworks just wouldn't stop!! I think i ended up only have a really bad migraine from the fireworks as they were actually the sounds of bombs and guns. I lost my appetite, and just tried to sleep it off, with all the lights turned off, and the curtains closed. I was given these pills that were for my headache and this powder that made the hot water all bitter and gross. But luckily I have a head nurse as a mother so she said that she knew what she was doing, and that I would get better. Even though I felt horrible, I tried to believe her and let her feed me whatever over the counter drugs she had, without becoming really bad to have to go to the hospital. I ended up being sick for two days straight- as I stayed bedridden on my own terms. I then got up my appetite and everything felt better on Saturday during our host sibling meet and greet.
As I have had the craziest year in 2012-2013, it continued for a bit in 2014.
For the first year, as many already know, I did have the opportunity to travel to 16 different countries including: Russia, China, India, UK, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, France, Iceland, Ghana, Togo. I did this through 2 different study abroad programs, one with Babson College, called BRIC (Russica, China, and India) and one with CIEE: Ghana- Business Development and Social Entrepreneurship, as well as a 5-week backpacking trip through Western Europe in the winter.
