Mexico has shed a new light on a lot of things for me.

I'm trying new things with new people, eating new foods (currently sipping on some atole that my suitemate made), gossiping in Spanish with my roommate at 3 a.m., taking buses to cities I sometimes can barely locate on a map...

Sometimes I get caught up in thinking that I have to do everything before I get older. But I think I should focus on telling myself that age is just a number. Sure it may be harder to climb ancient pyramids when I'm a senior citizen, but why the hell am I so worried about turning 25? 30?

I've realized...

that I really don't need to go back to the United States.
