You guys are awesome

So, I woke the morning of my last post all embarressed and ashamed. Had I really just wrote, and posted, all that? (Though I'll admit, I felt significantly better for it) I purposely avoided opening my comment e-mails till today actually (and more specificlly, within the hour), worried/scared/nervous about what you guys had said.

Sometimes I'm rather silly. Because I should have read your comments as they came in.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kind, supportive words. And hugs. Those were really nice. You guys are awesome, and I couldn't have asked for better writer friends. Really, you all have to live near me so I can host a party where I do nothing but feed you baked goods. We can also peep joust, that's fun. No swimming in the canal though, tis polluted.

I figure I should up date you guys - I've put finding a job/internship on hold.

For 2 and 1/2 years.

Because all this has helped me make the choice and join the Peace Corps. I leave in June for Ethipoia. Promise, I'll tell a lot more latter in an A-Z challenge post.

Leaving means I have a lot on my plate, and this little break has helped clear my head and informed me how much time blogging takes! I'll be focusing on challenge posts for the rest of the month, but I'll see you all in April!

Though, April's gonna be scary. I thought it was hard keeping up with Platform posts and what you guys normally do. We're all gonna drown in words next month. >.<


  1. Oh wow! Good on you! You'll love it. My sister worked for 3 years in Rwanda with VSO and it changed her life (she also met her husband there).

    And good luck with the A-Z Challenge, looking forward to your posts!

    1. I'm planning on enjoying it, but saying I'm not nervous and scared would be a lie. All the people I've talked to who've been have loved the experience, and I feel like this is something I need to do.

  2. Wow - that's amazing. I'm glad you've made your choice, and what a great one it is!! Looking forward to hearing more.

  3. You are amazing! What an awesome and selfless choice, I'm totally jealous. Seriously happy for you!

  4. Whoa... sounds like an adventure... So proud of you!

  5. Wonderful! <3

  6. April's gonna be scary? Sounds like you have some bigger adventures than that ahead of you.

    Tossing It Out

  7. Sorry things haven't been working out how you hoped (join the club) but Ethiopia! Now that's what I call compensation. What an amazing experience that's going to be. I'm doing the A to Z too so I'll see you next week.

  8. Gwen, this is fantastic news. What an amazing experience you're going to have. I'm so pleased for you.

  9. Wow, Gwen, good luck w/ the Peace Corps.I've known a few people who have joined that but the idea of doing it myself kinda scares me. lol

  10. The Peace Corps - wow, that will be a big change in your life.
    Just wanted to welcome you to the A to Z Challenge and I'm looking forward to your posts next month.
