Hunting for Information

I want to do good. It's surprisingly hard to find a way to do this. This has been my motivation in pursuing the Peace Corps, but I am failing in trying to look beyond that. I've been doing research and hitting a road block. There are all sorts of programs and groups for people who… Continue reading Hunting for Information

Ukraine??

Do you remember that post where I told you that since the Peace Corps hadn't worked out this time that I wouldn't post about it again until I reapply? Well I haven't reapplied, but I have gotten an email that changes everything! Check this out: Yes. That just happened. I never saw that coming. Ukraine.… Continue reading Ukraine??

Tick tock, tick tock 

Today is Thursday, the 12th of March. On the ides of March, I will receive word about where I will call home for the next two+ years of my life. I know, for someone who isn't yet in the Peace Corps, I write an awful lot about it. Well, hopefully the ides of March will… Continue reading Tick tock, tick tock

What can I say - sometimes reality gets in the way of reality. And besides, I have been trying desperately not to let my heart… Continue reading RWANDA

Immediately after submitting it, you're sent a Health History form, which took me the better part of an hour to go through, even though I've a limited medical history. Honestly the best part about going through it was that it gave me a… Continue reading Goodbye Morocco

Peace Corps

I try not to talk about it because I tend to get way too excited about it, but if you haven't figured it out already, the Peace Corps has been a life long dream of mine. I am pretty sure I was younger than 10 when I read something in a National Geographic magazine about a Peace… Continue reading Peace Corps

Battling Fear

According to Frank Herbert's Dune, "fear is the mind killer." I believe that 100%, no question. I've never considered myself to be fearful, of anything really, but especially not in a paralyzing capacity. But as certainty of the future starts to go out the window, and a plurality of options opens up, I'm starting to think that… Continue reading Battling Fear

Days Ahead

So what kind of beat is life currently jamming to? The beat of adventure, that's what! Adventure, the future, forward thinking, anticipation, all that sort of thing. In light of that I thought that I'd post a couple of links and blurbs about some of the things I'm finding more intriguing as possibilities for the… Continue reading Days Ahead
