Friday Gratitude: Starting to Say Goodbye

On this day two years ago, I quit my job to join the Peace Corps. I remember because today also happens to be my sister’s birthday. (Happy Birthday, Kris! Hope you and mom had fun at the Cat Cafe.) 🙂

Today I am headed to my training site to visit my first host family and to say goodbye to them before I leave Kosovo. They live on the opposite side of the country from where I am now. I haven’t seen them since March of last year.

My mom, sister and I have been talking about hosting a garage sale when I get home this summer. I’ve been working on various crochet projects so that I can set up a craft table and sell my wares. I like this purse so much, though, that I might keep it for myself. 🙂

For me?

You may have noticed that my Instagram account is now set to private. I was feeling a bit “Big Brothered” this week. Hopefully some time in the future I’ll feel comfortable making my account public again.

Media consumption this week … nothing, except Frasier. I started reading a new book, too.

All next week I’ll be in Pristina, attending my COS (close-of-service) conference. In PC Kosovo, we have four conferences total, two our first year and two our second. I am looking forward to seeing my friends. This is likely the last time our entire cohort will ever be together. (Wow … ) Also, the conference is being held at my favorite PC-chosen hotel and I am looking forward to a week of good food and access to a pool. 🙂

I’ve thought long and hard about how/when to end this blog. I thought I’d make it to the end of the school year but guys, I just don’t have much else to say. Over the last two years, I’ve shared as much about Kosovo and my experiences serving in the Peace Corps as I could. I *think* next week will be the last week I post with any regularity. I may post a few more times between now and the end of my service, but sporadically. Be sure to follow my blog via email in order to receive updates on when I post.

I am considering starting a monthly (?) newsletter once I complete my service to keep everyone updated on my first few months post-Peace Corps service. If you are interested, please click here to sign up.
