So I did it....

Well, at least I'm starting on it.

For those of you that don't know, I've been contemplating applying for the Peace Corps for a year. And yesterday I started the application.

My reasons are many and my explanations would probably take numerous posts. But the short end of it is that I have been blessed with so much and because of that I want to go and help others.

The timeline from application to leaving is about 6-9 months. So if I get accepted, I'm not leaving anytime soon.

Eek! This is a big step for me, but it's time.

Tyler Durgen would be proud.

The Details....
Wow. I guess there are alot of them. First off, it's a two year commmittment in a foreign country. You live like a national there (i.e. not like an American), most likely learn another language, and help the nationals there in some area. I will be applying for the business area of the Peace Corps, which I hope will involve microloans, business plans, etc. If you have any questions, please post them and I would love to try to answer them! =)
