i was dropped off yesterday for staging in georgetown. i walked in last minute (of course!) & had time to drop my luggage off in the holding room and head to registration. after handing in all my forms i had a litte break and then went to our staging orientation thing. it was long, i'm not gonna lie, but it was neat to meet everyone and it definitely provided so solid information. it is always nice to know that everyone else is in the same boat as far as fears and expectations go. they also addressed some major concerns which was comforting. overall it was a great pep meeting and i left feeling energized and excited. (& hungry).

we went out last night for pizza and drinks and then called it a night. i will be meeting downstairs in an hour to take the bus to dulles airport. this will begin a long journey that is sure to be exhausting. i will finally land in almaty, kaz at 12:25 am their time on 3/11/11. (good luck right?) we will then go through the customs jazz and then a peace corps processing. they said we'll probs finally get to our sleeping area at around 3. then they will get us up at 7am to eat breakfast and get ready & our training will start at 9 am. nothing like jumping right in!

i am so so so excited to see what's next & to finally make it kazakhstan. this has been a long awaited moment.

by the way, totally didn't bring the most luggage. i'm probably towards the bottom in who brought the most. there are peeps here with single bags close to 80 or 90 pounds. i can't imagine carrying that!

anyways, i love you all! i'm not sure when i'll be able to post again, but i will when i can.

wish me luck!
