Here I sit in Gino Warnick’s suite in Fisher West with Justin Morales and Barbara Olivier, two of my teammates for ASB Hope is Vital. As I type out this blog post, my mind continuously returns to the prospect of me going on my second ASB trip. I’m no ASB rookie anymore, but I still look forward to the coming trip with as much excitement as I did for my first ASB excursion. While I have steadily gotten to know my teammates over the past several months in our team meetings, I look forward to really getting to know them all on the trip. By spending the next week with them, not only doing service with Community Servings and reflecting on our experiences but seeing the sights and embracing everything the city of Boston has to offer, I hope (and think) we will all grow closer together.

Of course, ASB is more than just a chance to get to know people, and I am especially interested in learning more about HIV/AIDS (our social). I’d say more, but we are leaving for Boston around 9AM Saturday morning (this morning now), so I should probably get to bed. Expect more commentary once we reach Boston!
