Invites Invites Invites to the Exclusive Club

So I am part of a Peace Corps group on Facebook. It seems like everyones, in the group, PO is telling them about their invites, placements and when they will be receiving their big blue packets. While I know I have been invited, it doesn't seem real until I know my placement. I have know for about two months that I have been invited but just recently have been telling people. Part of it is because I didn't want to get the dreaded question of "Where are you going?" Well I don't know. It doesn't make it real not knowing and with my own taboos and superstitions, it's bad juju to talk about things until they are concrete. I have put off going to a psychic near my alumni until I got a placement. Many people have been surprised that I been thinking the peace corps, which is surprising to me, Hah. Well, I just want the next two weeks to fly so I can be certain... Off to volunteer now!

  1. Ursula! I just got a chance to check out your blog. I know all too well how frustrating and nerve wracking it is playing the pre service waiting game, but I promise it will all be worth it in the end! I'm really excited for you and can't wait to see what kind of assignment they offer you, whatever it is I know you'll be an amazing asset to the program. Let me know if you need any advice, or words of encouragement, or silly stories from service (of which you'll have many of your own in no time). Miss you!
