I am invited to...

BOTSWANA!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited I can't stand it.  I leave on April 1st for staging, and that is almost all I know right now.  I have to read through the gigantic packet of information that came and then formally accept.  That's all for now! Bigger update in a day or two.

  2. HOLY MOLY! Congratulations Tracy! So does this mean they are running a second group to Botswana? One in April and the other in June? This is so exciting!!!!

  3. Congratulations! What state do you live in? I'm only curious because my invitation was sent out the day after yours but I wasn't going to start looking for it until next week. I do live on the West Coast.

    Funny story, I told the career counselor my freshman year that I wanted to be a Sexologist. I went the public health route instead, finding it a better thought. But I never figured I'd run across someone, so close to age to boot who was a sexologist.

  4. Thanks, everyone! Note- I made a mistake when I posted "June 1st" as my departure date- it is, in fact, April 1st. So, Mobleys- I look forward to meeting you in Philly (my old stomping ground)! Tija, I hope that you hear something soon and that we'll be somewhere close enough to meet eachother! Goodlifechoice- I am in NY. I hope your invitation arrives soon! Funny story, I almost went the public health route instead of sexology! Let me know when you hear about your invitation! I have been reading your blog on wordpress, but I don't know how to "follow" it... any ideas?

  5. Someone told me about a group on Facebook called "BOTS 9 - Peace Corps". It is for people who left in April 2010. They compared information on packing and stuff. It is great information.

    We actually should start our own "BOTS 10 - Peace Corps" group.

    You are the only other person I have run across that has their invitation to Botswana. Do you know of others yet?

  6. Hmm, a Facebook group is a great idea. Do you want to start it? Let me know! I don't know of any other Botswana invitees yet.

    So... what are you packing? :)
