Finally a Concrete Answer

Just as I had given up, and my frustration with the government reached an all new high, the UPS finally came with a rather large packet from the Peace Corps. Its like they do this to you on purpose to see what you are made of; to see if you can handle the pressure, the uncertainty, the anticipation; to determine if you are flexible, strong willed and fit, etc for service.  This is a test not advertised on the medical packet.

In it, my new assignment: St. Kitts and Nevis.  Leaving January 27th 2011. 

Right now, Im not really sure how I feel about this.  Although the average temperate is between 79 and 89 F all year long.  I could get used to that.

Instead of being excited and relieved, now Im just annoyed I have to go through all the same paperwork again, but for a different country.

It might seem as though I am ungrateful, unhappy, etc, but believe me I am not. I am perfectly happy going anywhere on this planet and helping where ever I can be of assistance.  As Lauren has said to me, its not where I go that matters, just that I am going to help.  I definitely agree.

I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. There was a definite reason why I was not meant to go to Lesotho. Im ready to figure out what that reason is now.



  1. I'm so glad you finally heard something! I hope you can find the silver lining in all of this! And I love the background!

  3. Awesome blog spot VAl! I too can't wait to read of all your adventures. You are absolutely right that everything happens for a reason. I am so grateful that there are young people like you that "step up to the plate" to make a difference!
