I got sick of waiting. It has been 42 days since I received medical clearance and not a peep from placement. I think it is odd too that my medical thing on the toolkit still says “look for your letter in the mail.” So I went ahead and emailed a new and improved resume to the placement office. Hopefully I will hear SOMETHING. anything! I really just want to make sure they know I still exist. Especially after my dental file got stamped, but never updated. That’s my fear now – my file got stamped and shoved into a dark corner.
The number one thing I am concerned about now is that I am not going to get a spot this year. I only qualify for non-Spanish and non-French speaking countries. Peacecorpswiki shows that they are only like 78 spots (based on 2009 data). I don’t know why but I really want to go this year. Maybe because it is 2011. 11 is my lucky number. My birthday this year will be 11.1.11. This year is special for me and I want to do something with it.
Whiny RAS blog post wah wah. 🙂
I am really hoping that going on vacation will be the much need RAS break, work de-stresser, and overall good vibe I need to keep me going for a long time. Vacation starts in 2 days 🙂 Too bad I am going to have to get up around 3:30am to catch my flight.
Also, side note! So, I got in a minor car accident the middle of this month. A guy backed straight into me. Idiot. Anyway, he accepted 100% liability – well duh. So my car is getting fixed for what I hope is free – I don’t think you pay anything when the other person accepts full fault. So, my car is getting a face-lift while I am on vacation. I think I am really going to enjoy this week off!
