Back from the Big Easy!

After spending a week in New Orleans I can see why Louisiana is ranked number one as the U.S.’s happiest state. The people there were always friendly, and constantly showed their appreciation for the service we were dedicating to the city.

“Man is so made that he can only find relaxation from one kind of labor by taking up another.” ~ Anatole France

JaimeMy first semester is completed!! I am feeling something I haven’t felt in a very long time… relaxed.
