ISAAC: The first snow has fallen on my college campus, and the sky has become a consistent gray. As the end of my first semester nears, essays are piling up and final exams loom in the near future. The novelty of college has worn off.
As I sit in the library, I look over an email that one of my best friends from high school sent me a couple of weeks ago. Instead of college, he has been helping out in an elementary school in Ecuador. He tells me he's having the time of his life exploring the beaches, mountains and jungle of the country by bus.
