If all goes according to plan, I will be joining the Peace Corps in 4 years after earning my bachelors degree in elementary education. This plan has been set for so many years, I don’t see it changing any time soon. BUT, I suppose there is one exception. If my boyfriend and I are still together by then, I would probably hold off on PC until we got married and then join together. But I’m looking so far into the future, i know it’s silly xD But this goal means the world to me! I have to accomplish it in my lifetime!! If no one is willing to go with me, I will go alone. 1 month ago

I had my interview two weeks ago. I hope to hear soon that I got nominated to serve! 3 months ago
I had a nightmare last night that I got rejected from all of the places I wanted to volunteer at (Peace crops, americorps, etc). Not a fun dream. I still can’t get over it. I think it has something to do with my boyfriend’s problems getting into med school. Also the experience of getting rejected from every internship last summer was a very painful wake-up call. In this economy, it’s hard to stay positive with back up plans, since it’s SO HARD to get a job. My only point of solace right now is that I have plans to enough math/statistics academic credits to get an entry-level statistician job in the govt. Of course competition is tough, but I will have both the skills and experience by the time I graduate.
I’m just so scared if I bottom out. At this point, the safety net of living with family is disappearing quickly. Being stuck in a minimum wage job at a grocery store while living in a not-so-great part of Chicago is a very real possibility at any point between now and getting into grad school. 4 months ago
