This and That

Well, finally there is less than a month left before I can be nominated!

I am currently reading the book "So You Want To Join the Peace Corps". It describes the entire Peace Corps life-cycle (from getting pregnant in the host country to readjusting to life back in the States).

According to the book, when I am nominated, I will be told the following things:

  • the Peace Corps program I have been assigned to (IT, education, small business, forestry...)
  • the region of the world I will most likely serve
  • the language requirements of the region
  • my approximate date of departure

Neither of the two potential motorcycle buyers showed up this weekend -- oh well. If I don't get it sold this fall I will try to sell it in the spring. Maybe I'll have enough money saved up so that I can keep it!

Have a great week!

I read the book, very informative, and kinda funny, as well.

When I rec'd my nomination, I was told the job function (which is VERY broad - mine is "IT / Youth Development"), Region, and Apprx. Departure Date.

By the way, I will be adding a link to your blog on my site soon...

Thanks Ash.

Maybe we will end up on the same continent!
