Journal Entry

Daniel left today. It is a weird feeling when things change, but I’m sure I will adjust quickly and continue to have lots of amazing experiences. We did the zip lining through the forest this morning and it was a lot of fun. It was a nice last thing to do together. He bought me a steak for lunch. I’m glad he came; I enjoyed having someone to share the experiences in the past month with.  I made it to the new farm and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. There are 3 other WWOOFers here. They are all girls and are all from Germany. Two of them came together, one separate. Mona is my roommate and she seems really cool. Apparently the other two girls don’t like it here. Adam, our host, apparently is very picky about how he likes things done. Mona said you just have to accept whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it wrong. She likes it here though. I think I will like it too. I’ve already learned how to not take those things personally. I’m here to learn, I’m happy to do things exactly how Adam wants them done if he is teaching me. The place is very messy and unorganized. I don’t mind it. Being clean is something I’ve had to force myself to be aware and conscious about. I learned to adapt quickly to situations because of the all the psych hospitals I went to as a teenager. Accept the situation as it is and focus on the positive things. I still live my life by that, I’m proud of myself for figuring that out at such a young age. So the mess here doesn’t bother me, however my property will be clean and organized. It will be well thought out, planned with detail and nicely maintained. But I’m grateful I’m not easily bothered or upset by things. I suppose I’ll just see how these next couple weeks go. I think Mona and I will end up getting along well.
