They won’t be here until May, but all of the A-21s (the next group of Peace Corps volunteers coming to Armenia) have been notified of their placement. They are preparing to leave their friends and families for 27 months. They are selling things, buying other things, figuring out what to do with all the stuff they want to keep, and trying to get it all done without going completely crazy.
For me, that means I’m on the way out. That means I need to start planning for the next stage in my life as well. It means I need to pass on the reigns of the projects I’m heading, and trust that my work here will continue after I leave.
I’m crossing my fingers, as I’m sure all the A-19s are, that everything I’ve done in Armenia will not have been in vain.
But… I’m not gone yet! I still have a lot of work ahead of me. Enough time to get it all done and change the world!
Well, if I can’t do it by August, I’m sure the A-21s will get right on that and finish the job for me. Thanks, guys! Looking forward to meeting you all when you arrive.
