I received this email two days before I was prepared to see it. Here is my March 13 2015 Peace Corps decision:
When I say “maybe next time” I really mean it. I will take the next year or more to cultivate more pertinent skills than just English education, and I will reapply in the future.
I want to say thank you to the bloggers who gave me so much support in the application process. I was blogging to clear my head and focus myself, and I never dreamed first of all that people would read and follow what I had to say, and second, I never imagined so many wonderful people would support me in my endeavor. So thank you for being excellent people. I won’t be writing about the Peace Corps again until such time as I reapply, but maybe some of you will still be reading and will finally be able to see the fruits of this labor. Again – thank you.
In the mean time I think I’ll take myself out for drinks and try to not let this dampen my weekend!
