Rachel,
Been reading the journals and appreciating every piece of them...
You once told your mom that going to Limai had given you an opportunity to KNOW YOURSELF - certain things you thought you could manage but had turned out that you could not, while certain things you thought you would fail but you had proven that you could succeed.
I think every kid who's going to Limai should keep an open mind - ready to discover a new world both outside and INSIDE!
Someone may have gone there with an objective to build characters and yet has benefited the most by finding out how much he really cares about learning.
Someone may have gone to Limai with the confidence to overcome anything - only to find out that the empty self-esteem had to be taken apart first in order to rebuilt the true self based on the good pieces from the wreckage.
Nothing could have prepared a kid for such an adventure and learning experience. It teaches kids to recognize that ˇ°when a door is closed, a window opens.ˇ± There are plenty of opportunities for learning - if it were not in the classroom, it would be outside of it; if it were not academically, it would be about oneself and the people around you.
I am so pleased that all of you have grown from where you were five months ago following an unconventionally trajectory.
I am proud to salute you all!!
I've asked the webmaster to move the reset button away. It may be helpful to copy the contents of your journal to a blank Word document BEFORE you press ˇ°Submit.ˇ± Should anything happened, you'd just copy the contents back and resubmit. Similar incidents have happened to me before. I've used this method regularly now to avoid the kind of experience you've had.
Hope this helps.
Bonnie
