Well, I’m jumping on the blog bandwagon. I promised myself to hold out until the summer. At least until I get medical clearance. But here I am, blogging about the Peace Corps before I really know anything about my assignment. Here’s my deal:
I’m graduating in a couple weeks from the University of Maryland in College Park with a degree in Community Health. I am nominated to serve in Central/ South America, leaving January 2011, doing a health degreed program. I am so excited.
My parents, on the other hand, are a little less charmed by the idea of me running around in a foreign country for two years, especially in a foreign country where I barely speak the language. There’s a little more to it than this, but I’ll keep it at that for now.
The uncertainty of how my Peace Corps experience will work out reminds me of the song, “Qué Será Será.” My Great Grandmother always used to sing the song to my sisters and I when we were little. For that reason, I found it a fitting blog title. There is no way to predict the future, and little reason to stress over it now. What will be, will be.
But, all the same, I’m hoping it will be the Peace Corps and one set of very proud parents.
