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

Welp.
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.
Anyway!

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?

Hey gal. How you doing out there at the end of civilization. Can't believe you are doing this but admire you for it. Hang in there and keep us informed. Hi from Texas.
