After much anticipation, planning, and many goodbyes, I am now leaving for the Peace Corps in Nicaragua. Ready or not.
Today, May 11th, is my birthday and tomorrow I will embark on this new journey. Only time will tell how this assignment affects my world view, my Spanish tongue, and my future--both personal and professional. I hope for safety, good health, learning, and a whole mess of new culture! I hope that I will have the strength, wisdom, and humility necessary to affect positive change in my new community. I will miss my friends and family; Tiffany most of all. Thank you to everyone who has supported my dream of serving abroad. Best wishes and lots of love to all! Now I will have a completely new environment in which to make my Seinfeld-esque social observations. Ciao!
