Here's what I've been up to...

Hello All! It's been a while since I've posted anything real so I'll update! I've made my official flight arrangements and since I live a stone's throw away from Philadelphia, PA I won't be flying out until the morning of October 12, 2010. I'd like to say I found a few people that I'll be in orientation with but I think they found me first. I'm still really struggling with this blog thing... but i'll get there eventually. I'm really excited that i've found a few blogs for people that i'll be serving with in Kenya!!! In the grand scheme of things however, it still hasn't hit me yet that i'm leaving everything I know for 27 months, I don't think it will until the very last minute. Anyway, to summarize i'm RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED to meet the other Kenya people!!

This weekend will be trip 2 for me. My mom and I are headed to New York tomorrow after work to see family. It'll be a nice trip since I haven't seen them in two years and I'm not sure i've ever been there in any climate other than cold. I'll let you know how the trip goes but I'm certain it will be fantastic.

In other news, I got an e-mail from Kenya today... actually it's from the Africa Country Desk Assistant, but I prefer to say I got an e-mail from Kenya. He sent a little survey situation to fill out so they can better fit me with a host family which is exciting, I'm glad they're asking for a little bit of input from me. My Grandmother really wants me to have a family with teenagers because she thinks they'll be more willing to teach me what they know... and more likely to speak english. I kind of hope my family doesn't speak any english at all. It's also a really exciting thought to think that my host family is probably contemplating what kind of American they will get. :-)

I'm updating this blog from my back porch and I just noticed that leaves have started to fall here but we've got this wonderful breeze that makes it really pleasant

so it's not that great a picture but... you get the idea
Okay, this is my last thing and it comes with a picture too. My friend Ashley took me out on the town for one last time before I leave... We had an absolute blast and it was so much ridiculous fun! We met a bunch of guys that went to the same college as me, as well as a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. He told me to get a good bed, and to not quit... he talked much longer than that, but that was the jist of it...

That's all for now, this was a long one, thanks for reading if you were able to stick it through to the end!!!
