For a long time, I felt like I didn't fully fit in with the things that were going on around me. I did not feel as interested, as others seemed to be, in certain popular aspects of society.
Every now and then, I would find people that seemed more like me than most others. Sadly, the occurrence of these people was so rare that I would forget what is was like to be with such a person during the time between occurrences.
I am surprised, happy, and drawing a lot of energy from the fact that through research and preparation for the Peace Corps, I am meeting many people that have some major wavelengths in common with me.
I feel like I have found a home for the parts of me that did not have a place to go before.
