So I have only fifteen minutes to get this blog up before dinner, so it’s gona be short and sweet.
I have left my home and my family and am now in DC, also known as the greatest city in America! After a long hard day of traveling yesterday, with bags that were all over weight!! I have arrived. I have to say that last night I was pretty freaked out and I have had a lot of “wait are you sure self”, moments. Last night was really hard for me, I was surrounded by people but felt lost in my thoughts, and to make matters worse the freaken Lakers lost!!
Today is much better. Spent the whole day in Staging where we basically learned what to expect. Also we learned more about each other, and met the whole group of people going to Armenia together!!! Learning that everyone has similar fears and anxieties helps. I am naturally a shy person so I know I just need to get comfortable and be myself and eventually I will feel better about leaving my family and friends and making new friends.
Also as a side note, we met Peace Corps Director Aaron Williams, and I have to say it was very inspirational!! I was actually surprised!!
So tonight is my last night in America, hoping to have an amazing dinner and a fun night!
