We gave you a spotlight on Meagan already, but now we want to direct you to her blog! In her last post, Meagan gave us some words of wisdom and told us what she learned on their wilderness expedition in Wyoming. Here’s what she said:

  • Sacred socks are socks that never leave your sleeping bag and are possibly the best creation ever
  • Appreciate the little things like running water and having feeling in your toes
  • You don’t realize how strong you are until you get put somewhere completely out of your comfort zone

One of Meagan’s photos from NOLSThat last point is especially important. We think that the whole point of a gap year is to push yourself out of your comfort zone and experience new things. That way, you know what you like and what you’re good at when it comes time to move forward.

Meagan has other great words and photos to share with you, so head on over to her blog to read what else she has to say!
