And it starts

We are in Brazil now suffering through a 13 hour layover on our way to Paraguay. I got to meet the whole group in Miami at staging, and so far everyone seems fantastic. A great many of the 47 volunteers recently graduated college in May, but several of them have a few years of post college or gradute life under their belts. Its nice to finally be able to talk about my hopes and consernes with other people who have been obsesing over the PC in the last few months too. We each have little differnt bits of information about our job assignemtns and about Paraguay itself. Its difficult to remember names at the moment, but Im sure that over the next three months we will all get to know each other very very well.
Im sure my blog posts will get more exciting as we move along in training.

Leaving soon.

Well, this is the start of my blog about serving in the Peace Corps in Paraguay.
I haven't actually left yet. I leave September 28th. In preparation of my departure, I haven been vacillating between packing up my room, and relaxing and enjoying the week and a half I have left in Indiana. I am leaving my friends, my family, and the person I love. Its hard to get everything ready, when I am trying to treasure the time I have left.
My To Do list was helping, but it might be time to write a new one. I have crossed out and rewritten so much, that its hard to read now.
Time to focus.
