Sigh. Delay.

I had my dental exam yesterday. I have four cavities that I need to get filled. I also have two wisdom teeth that need to get pulled. Basically, I have dental appointments almost weekly started, well, this week, all the way until the first week of May. That means that May will be the earliest that I will get my medical and dental forms in. I'll definitely be staying on top of this stuff. Hopefully when I get my bloodwork done, the doctor won't say I have cancer or something...

Sub-Saharan Africa!

Monday of this past week I received a call from my recruiter saying that I'll be going to Sub-Saharan Africa next March! What an exciting phone call!! When I got back from my Spring Break Service Work trip I had the medical forms in the mail. I got both my dental and medical appoints set, both of which are in the following two weeks. My recruiter also asked me to start doing some environmental activities for my application. I just spent a week doing Hurricane Ike relief down in Texas, which helped, but I'm also going to join the Natural Resources Club on campus, and also possibly do some volunteer work at a local park. That's all for now!

Update: Long Overdue

I apologize for not keeping up with my blog here (this semester has been brutal). In Decemeber, when programs were to open up, my recruiter could not find a program for me. She said I should try and get more things put on to my application and wait until March when more programs open up. I decided against trying to qualify for another program and to wait it out until March. Well, it's March now. I got an update last weekend in my email so I checked out the main Peace Corps site. My application on there was finally fully up-to-date. After that I emailed my recruiter to remind her that I was still interested in a program. I got an email response saying she was out of the office and would respond back to emails by March 12th. Needless to say I was a bit saddened by that. However, almost immediately following that my recruiter emailed me saying that she'll try and find a program for me and that she'll be in contact with me over the next few weeks. I went to my second class today and checked my email (this is a normal thing). I had another update email. So I checked the main site again and it said that I was nominated for a program!!! I was/still am super excited and super happy to have read that! However, my recruiter is still out of the office for the week so I don't know where I could possibly be going yet. Haha. Kind of funny. Patience is key here. I'll just wait it out until my recruiter contacts me, I suppose.
