I know there’s probably only mild interest in this, but I don’t have any cavities. At least I didn’t get any in my first year in the Peace Corps. My dentist visit was part of my mid-service medical check up. Everything is all good in that department, too.
Along with the medical stuff, we had a Mid Service Conference that brought in all the volunteers left in AZ5 (there were 55 when we arrived, now there are 44). We went over lessons learned from our first year, how to make the projects we are working on sustainable in our second year, and things to think about as we consider our post-PC lives.
Honestly, it’s a subject I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. I still have no idea what I’m going to do when I get done here, and if I thought I did know, it would be foolish to be closed to the opportunities that might come about in the next year. Between grad schools, jobs, and whatever else people do after the Peace Corps, I’m still completely lost. I’m giving my self a couple of more months to get a concrete idea so I can work toward something during my final months here.
