And so it begins

The countdown has officially begun:
2 weeks left of my internship.
4 weeks left of school.
8 weeks left in the United States!

Yes, its all happened much faster than I thought possible, but I couldn't be happier. I have a lot of preparing to do (aka shopping!) and its a bit overwhelming. How in the world am I supposed to pack a year of clothes into two suitcases and a carry on?! Its potentially a girl's worst nightmare! But hey, I think I'll manage :)

I've been given a mentor, named Cristy. She is currently a PCV (Peace Corps Volunteer) in Moldova and has been such a blessing. Its so great having someone to give me pointers and help prepare me for when I leave! She even mentioned that some volunteers adopt dogs while living in Moldova.... hmmm I think I might have to look into that :)

I haven't gotten the official leave date yet, but I know my first day of training in Moldova is June 9th and I have training in the US June 7-8. Looks like Ill be leaving the 6th!

We're in the process of planning my going away party, so no worries, Ill have many hugs to give and will happily accept many before its time to say "la revedere" (goodbye)!
