Hello my loves
I want to apologize for not blogging as often as I thought I would be. I've been extremely busy with the teens anywhere from waking up at 5am and coming home at 10pm these work days can be very long, so please try and work with me on this.
Since I haven't been on here often, I have SO much to tell everyone. I've been on a few field trips with the teens including Universal studios as well as Izu Beach (which was yesterday). I passed out for about two hours on the beach (which felt like 20 minutes since I was so tired from Mt Fuji) put very little sunscreen on and got VERY burnt haha the worst tan lines (but hopefully my Italian-ness kicks In and it turns into a tan fast)
The biggest update: I climbed Mt. Fuji which is the highest mountain in Japan. I did this with four of my other roommates IN THE DARK (so we could get to the top to see the sunrise at 4 am) when I first thought of hiking I was like oh yeah no problem I hike all the time (trails mind you) boy was I in for a shocker. I shouldn't say I hiked it, I CLIMBED it. These rocks we had to hike over were like boulders, huge rocks! I couldn't believe it. But there were also young kids doing it as well as the elderly, so that's when my ego kicked in and I decided if they can do it so can I. After getting halfway up I realized nah I'm American this is crazy and the Japanese are bat sh*t crazy! Haha but regardless of how extremely difficult it was, I wouldn't change it for the World. It was a once in a life time experience and was extremely worth it as I was looking over the clouds (yes over) because we were on the clouds. Seeing that sunrise was the most amazing thing I have ever seen!
I'm going on another field trip with my teens tomorrow to go go-kart racing (which means I can finally sleep in!) you have no idea how excited I am about this, I have been so exhausted the past two weeks.
I will be trying to keep up with my blog more regularly but if I don't for a little bit you will know that I'm busy and will have a chance to update it when I get some free time
Time for some sleep ! Love you all
