Man oh man.... Now, I've heard "don't let Peace Corps ruin your Peace Corps experience" before, but now I know where it comes from. Apparently my placement officer has been trying to contact me but the only contact info she had was my home phone number back in CT. So after I guess 3 weeks, my mom finally was able to understand a message she left on the machine and told me to call her. We had our peace corps talk and all, and at the end she wanted to make sure she had my other info staight. So she double checked on on my home address here in Houghton...and then she had the balls to ask "...and your email is still ablankenbicker@hotmail?" Am I missing something here..?
Anyways, so now I have a job at the greenhouse getting experience for work in forestry and agriculture that I can put to use in Latin America. Maybe like Essa? We'll see. I'll let ya'll know when I get an actual invitation. Ciao for now.
