So I came home from Nashville, visiting my sister, and there was my coveted package on the front door step. Peace Corps Invitation Kit!!!!
I have been invited to teach High School English in INDONESIA. Orientation is April 4th and Pre-Service Training will be April 7th. I am totally excited and can't wait to go. It feels like I have passed a huge milestone. I never thought that I would actually be going! 
My nerves are going crazy now though, because this is actually a reality. I sent my acceptance email this morning. So there is no turning back now.

My mother is a little scared for me, but she says that is just what moms do! haha. She has been online all day looking up things about Indonesia and trying to figure out all of the things that I can bring back for her.
I should be getting an email soon that will give me more information about my departure and getting my passport. So there will be more detail postings to share very soon!


  1. Great! Sounds wonderful - and an experience of a lifetime.

  2. Congratulations Angela! I just saw your post come up on the Indonesia Peace Corps Journals feed. I'm a current volunteer here, so if you have any questions about PC or Indonesia feel free to contact me!

  3. Hey Angela,

    It is nice to finally hear about other invitees. I was invited back in October and haven't had heard very much since. I was just thinking today how much closer we are to April (keeping in mind I have been waiting since October) and can't wait to meet everyone and get started. Just out of curiosity was there a link to a welcome book in you packet because they hadn't finished it when I got the invite and I haven't been sent an email yet.

    Can't wait to meet you!

  4. Wow! What a wonderful surprise to actually have comments on my blog! I think that made my day! I can't wait to meet everyone.
    @Allison: There was a note at the bottom of my packet that said there was no welcome book for this program. So it looks like we might not be getting one.
    @Noel: You would not believe that amount of questions that I have! haha. I am excited but very nervous at the same time.

  5. I had a feeling that might be the case since the program is so new, but it is nice to finally get confirmation from someone. haha Thanks! I really want to know how big our group will be since it is still a new program.
