This is an apology letter. Why do I need to apologize to everyone in one fell swoop? Because you have all been subject to my obsessive nature lately... I am a girl possessed by leaving for Peace Corps! I am eating, sleeping, breathing, and thinking entirely about this upcoming adventure. And it seems that I have developed an uncanny ability to make everything refer back to the Peace Corps. Literally, as I type this, I am having a conversation about pumpkin cupcakes with a coworker and somehow found a way to bring it back to Peace Corps ("you know, they eat a lot of pumpkins in Botswana"). I feel badly because I am sure it is annoying or, if it isn't yet, it will become annoying. Please bear with me. I am sure that in 2.5 years my conversations will return to normal... I hope. Until then, know that I love you all and am so appreciative of your patience and support. Ke a leboga ("thank you" in Setswana)!
Tija the Possessed
P.S. This is how it will look on the other side of this adventure...
(Thanks to Elizabeth for reminding me of this PSA! Classic!)
