|We made it to the top of Mt. Scenery! (and off the Rock)|
My last semesters on Saba were pretty intense, lots of studying but also lots of fun (apparently not much time for blogging). I ended up staying on island for most of the breaks but I went to Mexico for the second christmas holiday and I went home between second and third semester. Overall I had an amazing experience on Saba and although the school was definitely tough, I met some incredible people and got to live a totally different lifestyle than I would have anywhere else.

One of the things that I like to do at the end of any experience are the highlights and lowlights. I think the highlights of Saba definitely have to include meeting all the incredible people (students, faculty, and locals), scuba diving (I almost got in 50 dives), hiking, the feeling after finishing a block of exams, no cell phones, hitching everywhere, and constant potlucks (every holiday, birthday, and sometimes just because we felt like it!)! I celebrated a lot more holidays than I ever would have otherwise because of the amazing diversity of cultures and religions that made up the students and faculty of Saba. The lowlights have to include grocery day wednesdays (no bananas), saying goodbye to friends in the upper semesters as they finished on the island (bittersweet), and of course block exams. I think the highlights win and that is definitely how I feel after finishing on Saba. I think every experience is what you make of it and memories of the tough experiences fade with time (block exams i'm looking at you!) but the good ones last for a lot longer.
