So turns out, I’m making my work computer cry. Yes. Work Computer. I am updating my BLOG from my COMPUTER at WORK in BENIN. Life is so fucking sweet right now.
On Friday all we happy stagaires swore to defend the constitution and do our duty to the Peace Corps, so I guess we’re all volunteers now. More or less. It’s good to finally be here, anyway. It’s been a long time comin’. The best part of the weekend was hanging out after the ceremony, of course (funny stories and pictures to come later).
Equally exciting is the fact that I’m finally here at post. My apartment is empty, but I love it anyway. Furniture and other decorations will come later, when I have time. The kitchen is, of course, already a disaster.
My first few weeks are going to be insanely hectic. Full days of work, followed by work on Craig’s projects, followed by trying to get settled, followed by crazy madness. My projects here are pretty cool, though. I’m clearly going to be kept uber-busy, which is the exact opposite of what I was worried about when I first got here.
So that’s life. I’m in the Big City, now. Hahahahhaha.
