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!

Update... Well Sort of

Well I received an email from my PO. The news was bittersweet. They are unable to tell me where I am going until the first of November. Which is fine, I just have been starting to let people know and I would love to tell them where I am going.
I start volunteering this Friday with Lifelong, I am excited but nervous to get started...

In other news, I am trying to be very very VERY optimistic about this boy. I guess it's time to really see if the Peace Corps. myth really exist.
