So I leave for staging in Philly tomorrow which will officially start my Peace Corps Adventure! I still have packing to do, phone calls to make, and general organizing/tying up loose ends to finish in preparation to leave for 27 months. Right now everything is feeling surreal since I have been waiting, thinking, planning, etc to go to Peace Corps for SO long. This whole process started around this time a year ago so it is hard to believe that the time has FINALLY come to leave. Anyway, I'm really excited but also really nervous! Looking forward to meeting everyone in the Bots 11 group and getting started on the journey. I'm hoping I will have enough internet access to keep this blog updated, but we will find out! Ok, it's almost 2 pm and there is still a mound of stuff on the living room floor waiting to be packed so I need to stop procastinating and get to it! More later!
