So You Wanna Join the Peace Corps?

June 10, 2010

I got a kick out of this site:

So You Wanna Join the Peace Corps?

Two of my favourite lines –

About packing light:

‘If you want to kill two birds with one stone (something that you might actually get to do on some assignments), strap on your luggage and run around your neighborhood. That way you can also begin to get used to people staring at you strangely. It’s going to happen.’

About thinking ‘Why am I here?’ after being in-country for a while:

‘In such dire times, also remember that you’re pretty much a guest of the government just visiting. Most of the people live there year-round. So stop your bitching.’

Too funny!

Link to ‘The Secret to Being a Happy and Integrated Peace Corps Volunteer’

May 28, 2010

Last week I was procrastinating studing for my Latin exam (which went very well), and now I’m procrastinating studing for my Old English exam. In my procrastination, I found this blog post from a gentleman in Gambia who’s about to begin his third year of service as a PCV. It’s his advice about how to be a Happy and Integrated PCV, and I just thought it was really well written and wished to share.

Enjoy!
