Day 1 comes to a close as I type this post. Providence, Brown, and the people here are something to experience. Although training has just started, I imagine that the next few days will be ones where I will be craving more information and ready to see the 8,000 kids come through campus this summer.
As I embark on the next couple days, I am challenging myself to be as open as possible to what is out there for the mind. Lately, I feel like I have been stuck in this area of knowledge that is cynical and not good for someone who declares themselves a lifelong learner. I am excited for this opportunity, to supervise, to advise, and to be a part of a team that values and supports me. Am I worried because of past experiences? Sure, but those were learning opportunities as well, I just did not see them that way. Hopefully this team building retreat will assist in getting my mind moving forward. Pictures soon!
