Disconnected & it feels so good: Izzy Lund

Disconnected & it feels so good


Hello!!! I feel like I’ve been gone forever. I hope everyone is doing well and eating all of the very best American food for me. The food here was great at first, but I’m starting to get sick of it (literally). I spent the day with Brooke & Allison and I love them so much haha. But getting sick of the food doesn’t mean I’m getting sick of India. I love it here. I haven’t felt home sick at all (lol sorry mom, I still love you though) but honestly, things are so good. I have developed such good friendships and relationships with everyone here. I’m lucky to be a part of this team.


Oh, I almost forgot!! Happy Thanksgiving (yesterday)! Being here has made me so grateful for everything I have back home. I am grateful for my family. I am grateful for my friends. I am grateful for an actual Thanksgiving dinner (haha). I am grateful for shoes. I am grateful for a functioning bathroom. I am grateful for the McDonald’s workers that know my name. I am grateful for my cozy bed. I am filled with so many emotions. But most of all I am grateful for this Ashabadi team. I am so happy to be a part of the green (dream) team. Our leader Amy is SO incredible. She always reminds us how hard we worked to get here and how its all paying off. Amy is so positive & I am beyond grateful for her. The other kids on my team are just as important. Caroline, Jonah, Matt, Adam, and Emery. I could go on and on about how terrific and inspiring each of them are. They all have so many different, unique qualities that make our team, the best team.


Don’t get me wrong, I miss all of you and I wish I could talk to you and catch up on how you guys have been and what’s been happening and what I’ve been doing, but it feels so good to be disconnected. To not have to worry about anything. I mean, besides the fact that there might be a spider the size of my head in my sleeping bag, or that when we are driving it feels like we are going to die every 5 seconds (yes, they are worse than me, I know it’s surprising). But honestly I love just being here, present in the moment. These moments I will never forget. These people I will never forget.
