It's crazy to think that in less than one month we will all be in Oklahoma. I know that personally I am really excited to help the families who were effected by the tornado. I never really knew much about tornados, I really only heard about them through the Wizard of Oz. I just can't wait to learn when I'm there, I want to learn more about the west. I don't know much about any of the states that are not o the east cost. Im getting more and more excited as the days dwindle.

We are laving one month from tomorrow…. WHAT!? I cannot believe that it’s already so close!! I am so excited for the experience that we as a team are about to have; I don’t even think I’m mentally ready for it. Over the past few months preparing for this I’ve known it was eventually coming…. but now its only a month away!! I cannot wait to get down there and start working, and getting to know this team even better!

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is hanging in there with school work, and I hope the seniors are enjoying their last semester just as much as I am! It is starting to settle in that I will be leaving in just a few short months - sad!

I think us ASB members are starting to finally to form as a group. To be honest, I was not super comfortable last semester since I didn't know everyone, and it was just an odd adjustment for me. However, I told myself to return back to ASB after Winter Break with a more positive attitude and an open mind, and it's working! Although I do not know every single member of ASB as much as I had hoped to by now, I am trying to get to know everyone as best I can, and I hope that other members try to do that as well. It is so great to see some of the members step up and suggest we go to dinner or lunch or something; I think it shows how much we want to interact with one another besides Friday's from 4-5 pm!

Also, while I have a chance, I think I can speak for all the ASB members when we say how much we appreciate the trip leaders. Amy, Brandon and Tori do so much for the group and I am sure there is so much behind the scenes action that we have no idea about. Stay awesome you three, and thanks for everything!

If I counted correctly, only 35 days until we leave?! This is so crazy...

Hi Everyone!
     This semester is getting crazy with everything piling up! It is awesome to have ASB to look forward at the weeks end and for spring break. It is so nice to be part of this team and I feel so lucky to be meeting all these wonderful people.
      Also, so we can all look back on it and smile... Yesterday a few of the lovely members of ASB were auctioned off for Flavor of Love!
     I just looked at the clock and we have a meeting in five minutes so I hope this was an acceptable blog because I really do not know what I am suppose to be writing :)

It hard to believe were just one month away from our trip these past few months has really flew by. selling here at the table getting so excite about the few bucks were getting knowing its all going to a great cause. I feel like we all have come so far with all these events and bonding moments. I have to say I've gotten to know all of you on different levels and i appricate every single person in this group. I am supper excite for our trip again i cant believe its only one month away. Going to class now enjoy your day everyone.

Hey ASBers! I am not the best blogger so bear with me. I hope everyone’s semester is going well and that you are all so excited for Oklahoma. It is so weird to think how close we are to the trip. I have had so much fun with all of our team bonding and I hope to have more. As I type this I am selling chocolate with Dan, Rushell, and Amy. It is a little slow but I think our hats are making a nice statement. I cannot wait for the meeting and Happy Friday! Have a great day guys!

5 Weeks!

Coming back to this semester has been a whirlwind for me. I am in all upper level courses now that I'm done with my gen eds, and am working on my Research Thesis in Psychology. Because of this, I forgot how close Spring Break is from us! It wasn't until last night at the Flavor of Love event did I realize. Sam Ghika's fun fact was that she was leaving for Oklahoma in just 5 weeks! It is unbelievable. All the work we have put in for this semester is soon coming to a close and soon we will actually be there! I am so excited to work with this great group of people and get to know everyone even better. Ice breakers are great but real team bonding happens with a tool in your hand and sweat in your eyes. So if you feel like you haven't made a connection yet with the group, don't worry, within our week together we'll feel like family, growing through the experience of helping others. I can't wait!!!!
