Today, we motored from Sandy Spit to Great Harbour on Peter Island. Everyone has been working diligently, finishing our research papers and presentations for Oceanography. We had our presentations after breakfast, which we learned a lot from, as well as being highly entertained. Right after we all finished, we crammed in our last study session before taking our MTE exam for Navigation Master and Chart work. It took us around two to three hours to finish the whole thing, but it was so rewarding when we finally finished. One of the directors, Travis, came to join us for dinner and it made me realize how close we all have become. The energy has been amazing, even though we are about to study alllll night long for our Oceanography exam tomorrow. I have learned so much about myself and taking in all of the goofy, beautiful moments, I couldn’t be happier to end this trip becoming so close with my team and knowing how to keep it positive. We only have a few more days before returning to our homes all across the world and I can’t be sad because I wouldn’t change my experience for anything. I am going home with a new direction, a fresh point of view that will inspire many journeys to come. I could ramble on all night about how life changing this journey has been, but I will end by saying, the biggest thing to remember is always see the positive in every moment and cherish it.
“Our journey as human beings is not about following a pre-ordained path, but about creating that path. Life rarely makes any more sense when things are done in order.’ Like makes sense when we are centered in our hearts and we let go of resisting how our unique journey needs to unfold in its own beautifully unruly way.”
