Hey friends.

WOW! This is going to be my last Friday Five for almost three months! Of course, I will still be sharing my posts about my journey to South Africa, but since my access to Internet will be here-and-there, I’m putting these weekly posts on hiatus.

With less than a week to go, everything is coming together! Packing is taking place this weekend and I’ve started to read up on Port Elizabeth and South African history and I am just overwhelmed with the amazing opportunity ahead of me. (Also, a week from today I will be spending a day in London, so that’s a thing.)

Anyways, here are five things going on in my mind, stateside.

1. Today’s reading from 2 Corinthians had me pumped:

For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. For all the promises of God find their Yes in him.

How incredible is it that we serve a God that will never reject us? In a world where we are too afraid to put ourselves out there for fear of being put down, Jesus is always there to affirm and uphold.

2. To my dismay and to all of my Southern friends’ chagrin, I am purchasing a pair of Chacos today. Not because I want to, but because I need to. It’s only because I need to. No, I will not wear them to my sorority’s formal. The buck stops here.

3. Last night’s season finale of Scandal…wow. I’m not going to ruin anything, but I do want to affirm that Scott Foley will always be the most attractive human to grace a television screen. #TeamJake4Ever

SCANDAL - "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" -After discovering the truth behind defiance, Fitz is still struggling to figure out whom he can actually trust. Meanwhile Olivia is trying to move on with her life, and she meets a handsome stranger, Jake Weston (Scott Foley), who sparks her interest. But when Fitz and Olivia are forced to be in the same room again, real sparks fly and things get heated. Back at Pope & Associates, the team handles a new case, and for the first time they're working with David Rosen instead of against him, on ABC's "Scandal," THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/RON TOM) SCOTT FOLEY4. Here’s your dose of daily “awwww.”

5. And,  a question for all of my readers! Where’s your biggest adventure been, and, what’s one piece of advice when it comes to traveling abroad?

  1. My biggest adventure, in terms of scale, was my family’s vacation to Colorado and Alaska last year, in which we utilized almost every form of transportation known to man–ATV, kayak, airplane, train, car, ship, and of course, the almighty foot.
