Currently Serving... to complete this goal, I just need not ET.

It's been rough but I think I'm past the critical period. I just need to hang in there and bring the most out of this experience as I can.

For starters, I commend you. I've only recently been researching the Peace Corps and I'm glad I've came across your post. Thank you and best of luck!

It definitely isn't for everyone. I would take a good, hard and honest look at yourself and your ability to be extremely open-minded patient and flexible with a myriad of situations. <br />

I'd also look at the reasons WHY you want to join. Are you just looking to resume-building? Language learning? Those goals might not be enough to sustain you through 2 years of inevitable doubt, frustration and loneliness.<br />

the challenges are immense but I'm having the experience of a lifetime. I don't regret the decision I made to join PC and wish everyone to have similar eye-opening experiences.
