I couldn’t think of a name for this very first post. But when I think about the things that brought me to this decision, this quote from Mahatma Gandhi always comes to the front of my mind. Maybe it’s corny. Maybe it’s idealistic and silly. It’s definitely a bit cliche. But it makes sense to me in this moment. It’s one of the first things that has really made sense to me in a long time. So I’ll start off my blog with that.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
I came to the decision to apply to the peace corps about a week ago. I sent in my completed application yesterday. It all happened very fast, though I know the rest of the application process will likely continue on agonizingly slow.
This blog will probably not be updated for several weeks, as I wait to hear if I have made it through the first round of the application process. I decided to create it now more as an outlet for my procrastination than anything else. Eventually I hope to use this page to keep in touch with family and friends during my adventures and experiences abroad. For now though, this little blog will probably sit here idly until the big day when I find out whether or not it has a future.
