Jody's Peace Corps Experience

Wednesday, January 26, 2005


So what have I been doing for the past 5 weeks!?!?! I've made a packing list of items I think I'll use while in the Philippines. I combined a bunch of packing lists together, making additions and deletions where I thought necessary. I have been so busy finding everything I need. I've also found a HUGE duffle bag as my primary piece of luggage with a smaller duffle to follow!

I've also been paying bills, keeping in contact with various other PC people, e-mailing batch 264 volunteers, and reading up on the Philippines as much as possible. PC Philippines sent out an information CD about the program, the different assignments and info about the Philippines in general. It's all becoming more and more real as I receive more of the forms, letters, information from Peace Corps each month.

I really need to focus on paying off my bills!!! By the way, does anyone want to buy a very good, used computer???? Let me know!
