I doubt I'll be updating this blog as often as I plan to, but I'll make an effort.

27 months is nothing
This thursday, July 24th, at the crack of noon, I'll be departing the sunny shores of Seattle for the hot "oh-my-gosh-al-gore-was-right" weather of Arlington, Virginia for the staging portion of my Peace Corps experience. Am I ready? No. Have I started packing? I have all the DVD's I want to take lined up, and thats about it. Do I know Bulgaria? I know how to say "Do you speak English?" Am I excited? Beyond belief. This is like the first day of school, a midnight movie for an actually good movie (so not Spiderman 3) and a first date all rolled into one. I'm nervous, but excited, scared yet intrigued. A wealth of emotions are coursing through my mind right now, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
