So Much To Do

>> It seems like the amount of things I have to get done between now and June 2nd is completely overwhelming. I need to purchase a laptop, solar charger, clothes, and then there's the debate ongoing about textbooks and materials for the forthcoming education work to be done in Sierra Leone. I also have to clean and close out my apartment whilst trying to maintain a semblance of a social life and saying difficult goodbyes. A lot of decisions had to wait until we were sure about being selected, and now all of those decisions are suddenly having to be made. Harumpf.

The Wait is Over

>> It took a long time, but we're finally here. I received my invitation packet in the mail today and I'll be in Washington D.C. on June 2nd and from there onto Sierra Leone. I hope to keep this blog updated although if other volunteers' experiences are typical, you can expect an update every two or three weeks. The most important part of this blog is the dialogue between me and you. Please don't hesitate to leave comments on the blog posts. Thank you again for reading, and I look forward to hearing from all of you.
