Living in China for a semester? Or are you ready to go teach English in Mexico? No matter where you'll be volunteering, you should record your semester abroad!

You are keeping a journal while you teach English abroad aren't you? It's the most important item to pack! Please, you gotta find some way to remember all of your amazing memories.

The adventure of living in a foreign country will stay with you forever, but remember that the mind isn't perfect. You will forget little details and tiny memories ... but you won't forget as many if you write them down!

So, volunteers — here are a few prompts to try out this month. Consider yourself challenged to complete them all.
