Happy Chrismukkah! Yes, that word may or may not have been coined on The OC, and it’s what we celebrated here in Chile. With latkes and ornaments. And this amazing a capella parody song by The Maccabeats. A festival of lights.
And I’m finally able to step back from everything I’ve been doing this year. So much movement, so many ideas, so many different projects and connections and challenges.
And now, my slate is finally clean(ish). The grades are in, the invoices have been sent, the diplomado is almost finished.
My brain is exhausted. My body is exhausted.
How lucky I am to have so many opportunities. How silly I am to say yes to almost all of these opportunities.
I’m learning so much. Concepts flash/spin/twirl in my head and get scribbled in my notebooks — about social enterprise, effective teaching, stages of living and working abroad, why planning and goal setting make me so uneasy, and so much more.
Whatever you’re celebrating this season, wherever you are in the world — I wish you peace and love and joy, and the lights to see it all.
