"Peace Corps Eve"

Tonight's not my last night in the States ... it's my "Peace Corps Eve." Okay. This is going to be a short entry, and it is not going to be properly broken down because the enter key does not work on this computer. I would have started a new paragraph right here, but I can't. OH WELL! Now's a good a time as ever to start being flexible, now isn't it? To sum things up: A. I've met a lot of great people. B. I don't have a lot of time at the moment, and I wont for a while. C. I leave for South Africa tomorrow morning. D. I would have started each of these points on a new line, but sometimes life simply cannot be how you think it should.

Keep your hat on, we may end up miles from here ...

It's 1:40am, and I am leaving for the airport in T minus 4 hours. As most of you know, I'm going to South Africa and serving in the Peace Corps for 2+ years. Yep, that's the plan.

I decided to go with the blog versus the email newsletter, because the newsletter just feels so ... invasive. Oh, I don't know. I think, more than that, that I will just feel much more comfortable writing dumb crap if I feel like people aren't being pressured to read it. And God knows, I love writing dumb crap.

I'm packed. I'm ready to go.
Physically, I've been ready to go for a couple of days now. Emotionally, I've been ready to go for months and months. I love my life here. I love my family, I love my friends, I love the opportunities and jobs that I've had- but I am ready for something else. I'm ready for a change.

So what do you say, South Africa, you think you can show me an adventure?
