Hello world! Let’s get real, I should actually just be saying “Hi, Mom” because I can’t imagine that anyone else reading this. However, if you are not my mother but are still reading this…welcome and thanks for stopping by! I hope to use this space to document my summer travels, preparation and eventual service in the Peace Corps.
For those of you that don’t know, about 3 months ago I accepted an invitation to serve in the Teaching English for Livelihoods program in Colombia. I am incredibly excited about this opportunity and can’t imagine a better placement for me. This whole process has been a complete whirlwind, which I will detail later. I’ve definitely had my ups and downs and I have found to be most helpful is reading the experiences of other volunteers. I hope to pay it forward by documenting my experiences here. Also, I find that I often get myself into some extremely interesting/humorous/disastrous situations on a regular basis so why not post them for the world to see? 🙂
That’s it for tonight. Tomorrow is the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL! I definitely have mixed emotions as I love my school and all of my amazing students but I am thrilled to start a new chapter in my life.
Hasta luego, amigos.
