I'm going to Armenia!
Hello family, friends and internet world!!
I have been waiting a long time for my Peace Corps adventure to start, and now it's finally about to begin! It's been such a long and tedious process since I decided to submit my application back in November of 2008, but I finally got a call from the Peace Corps asking if I would like to leave May 27th!! My Placement officer wouldn't tell me where I was going, just that it would be in Eastern Europe, but due to some internet snooping I discovered that I will be going to Armenia!
This whole time I have been expecting to go to Ukraine and now that I have learned that I will be in Armenia instead, I don't really know what to expect. I mean isn't Armenia in Glendale? haha Just kidding, but seriously I don't know anything about it, and it seems to be much more Middle Eastern than Eastern European to me... So I guess I am going to have to be a model Peace Corps Volunteer and be flexible and adjust =)
In the coming weeks I hope to get more information and hopefully get everything together and be prepared to leave my family and friends...
In closing I just want to say thank you to everyone that has helped me along with this process, my brother, my sister and my parents! You have all been amazing and I will miss you soo much! To Betsie, Valeria and Tawny, thanks so much for recommending me and filing out all that paperwork!
