& there is nothing.

i thought i was getting better at this patience thing. haha. not. i didn't want to post again until something interesting happened in my peace corps process, but my poor little blog just looks so empty and lonely. and so i am writing. but i have nothing to say. other than the fact that i have lost it.

i have poured over countless blogs and wiki pages looking for info. i know i don't leave for a hundred years (at least it feels that way), but i just would love to know what continent i will be in. i feel like it is not too much to ask. the pains of an mi student, a location-less nomination.

any-who...i guess i should just wait. like normal people.

in non-pc related news: i have started subbing and i love it. which is good since i am getting my master's in education. i also teach an adult esl class. love that one too. i also love that i am learning so much in class that i am getting to add to my awesome lesson plans for my adult esl class. i'm pretty sure they're loving it too. i started out teaching straight from the book which was pretty boring for all of us. now i am filled with fun games and awesome activities. yay for learning something in school!

aaanddd...i leave for the beach in 9 days. wooo.

my pearly whites

dental clearance. yay! even though it is just one check mark of many, it feels pretty awesome. i am now just going to have to wait for a loooong time before i hear anything else. since my departure isn't for a little less than a year, i have a lot of time to kill.

in other news, i just got my first place with my sister! i am working on painting and moving in now. eeek. it is just so cute, and i am so excited.

the most important thing i have learned in this peace corps process is that it is so important to have other things going on in your life. it is too easy to get wrapped up in the application process and before you know it consumes your life. while i am still so excited about every step i take that gets me closer to being a pcv, i am so thankful that i have school and work and fun to keep me sane.

back to packing,
