Tonight is the night before my year of service with JVC Northwest begins and there are so many thoughts, feelings, and worries going through my head all at once! I cannot wait to embark on this experience but as with anything new, there are many mixed messages going through my brain but hopefully I will be put at ease after getting to Orientation tomorrow. We have five days of orientation/training before being sent to our respective sites and that should definitely answer some of the questions I have and clear some things up. The unknown is always somewhat intimidating but is often accompanied by excitement, especially when one is as passionate about what they are doing as I am. I can’t wait to further develop my passions and maybe even find some new ones! (I’m thinking dogsled racing might be a good one…)
I am so thankful for everything that my family and friends have done to help me get to where I am today and all of the support they have given me! I can’t imagine my life without all of their love, words of wisdom, laughter, and encouragement, and I can’t even put into words how appreciative I am for each and every one of them.
I’m supposed to be leaving for the airport in 2 hours but I am too hyped up to even consider sleep so I think I’m going to try and mentally prepare a bit more, repack my backpack one last time, and play some Candy Crush to ease my nerves. Next time I blog, I will likely be in Alaska! (EEK!)
