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?
