Medical Packet

My med pack is on its way! It was mailed out yesterday, and should arrive by tomorrow. I am so excited, and I'm wondering how that's going to affect the time in between now and my invitation. I still need to finish up my gymnastics career, my last quarter of undergrad, and my trip to China! :)) This quarter I'm taking 2 super advanced French courses and I'm TA-ing an ESL class in accent reduction. I love it because they all gawk at "how beautiful" my English is hahaha. It's nice to know I can at least speak my native language well. I love my students though. I enjoy being both a language learner and teacher because it just gives me such a great perspective of both sides. Well, I'm gonna try and finish up those appointments asap. I'll update once they're done. Crossing the fingers for no problems!

Nomination Details

A lot of people have asked me "Is there any place you wouldn't want to go?" I always responded by saying no, and then admitting that I'd probably prefer not to go the North Africa/Middle East region. Well, that's where my nomination is for! Hahaha..of course! It's okay though because while I wanted to go there the least, I still want to go there (if that makes sense). I've started researching the 2 countries that are open there (Morocco and Jordan), and they look pretty sweet. I'm excited, and the nomination just makes it all seem so much more real. My tentative departure date is in January, and I'll be teaching English :)

Finally Nominated!

Hello PC Journal world,

I've been wanting to make a blog for some time now, but seeing as I started my application process back in September, and hadn't really heard anything, I wasn't sure my PC journey would actually happen. Today, I woke up to an email telling me I've been nominated so I'm pretty darn happy. I see this part as me being halfway there!

Last weekend was Senior night for us gymnasts at THE Ohio State University. It was really emotional, and leaving 17 years of gymnastics behind is kind of hard for me to process, but knowing that I have a PC journey ahead of me definitely helps! I was surprised to see a nomination without a region or time frame notification, but I'm assuming my PC recruiter will let me know soon enough. I'm kind of hoping for francophone Africa because of all the French I've learned in college, but I also speak Spanish so Latin America is a possibility, and I'm half Chinese so anywhere in Asia would be sweet too. I would love to go anywhere though! I'm qualified for both Health Extension and Education, but I'd prefer to work in the Education field. That's pretty much it for now. I'm happy to be blogging on here now, and I hope I will have many more updates for the future!

Until then,
