And the countdown begins…
Hey Friends and Family!
Today, July 20th, marks exactly 6 months until my departure! Eekk. Did you do the math?… That means January 20th, 2015 is the day! (math is hard)
Obviously, I am super excited to go to South Africa, but I can wait. Does that make sense? I’m not in a rush to fast forward through the next 6 months of my life because that time is going to pass regardless. And whether or not I enjoy my last 6 months in Miami and make the most of it, or spend my time yearning for the Peace Corps, January 20 is going to come at the exact same time. Plus, there is a lot I need to do in the next 6 months, which I will get to later.
Aside from the Peace Corps significance, today is also important because two of my favorite people in the entire world turn one year wiser today. Happy Birthday to my dad, Ed, and my bestest, bestest friend, Ryan!
Anyway, I love you both to the moon and back, and here’s to 6 more months living in the same country as y’all! Woo!
