A week from tomorrow I will depart for my pre-service staging orientation in Washington D.C., then two days later I'll be off to Guatemala for 27 months of Peace Corps service. While I'm incredibly excited to finally set off on this adventrue, I am becoming increasingly nervous. To make matters worse, my sister, Lulu (aka. Elizabeth), is leaving this Tuesday to study abroad in Spain, so I have to say goodbye to her really soon. Anyway, I really don't have much to say but I wanted to try out this whole blog thing. I'm hoping it will be a easy place to post pictures in addition to my mass emails.
