|1 year ago in front of the Peace Corps Headquarters in DC, and now I'm finally getting ready to go!|
I have reached less than a month with only 21 days to go until I move to Africa for 2.5/3 years! I can't believe the time I have been waiting for since I was 8 years old is coming! The next few weeks will surely be spent with final preparations as well as many tearful goodbyes. As excited as I am, I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit scared to leave all of my friends and family. It's not going to be easy to not have them around me.
Meanwhile, I have started collecting my education supplies to teach Biology!! It's daunting to think I will be going somewhere where I won't really be supplied with anything, but I am so blessed with a family to support me and help me collect supplies that I will need over the next 3 years (some will be shipped or brought along in a year...I definitely won't be fitting all of this in my suitcase to take with me lol)
|Enjoying time with best friends|
Some of my friends also put together a picture book of memories for me to take with me. I know I will be grateful for the book and thinking of the memories with my best friends when I get lonely and miss home.
