When I first arrived in Rio I couldn’t stop falling over. I mean I’m not the most coordinated person to begin with, I always joke I can send my project in style then trip over a tree branch going to take my shoes off, but the amount of dizziness and inability to gain composure that surrounded my daily moment was abnormal. My logical mind knew I was likely just overwhelmed, leaving Boulder in a slightly panicked state, with big life changes on the horizon and a work load that canopied this trip which I was still unsure how to navigate.

Returning to

It always amazes me how adaptable the human brain is. Yesterday on NPR I heard how they measure the growth of information in the brain much like you see a muscle form on the arm. You can make yourself more creative or better at a sport. It’s all about putting in time, repetition, repetition, repetition. In essence the human brain is made to assimilate to just about any situation. But despite how a level of me knows this to be true, there continue to be moments where I can’t imagine being able to adapt to anything different than where I am right now.
