I don’t know what came over me, but I am very close to finishing my application for the US Peace Corps. I finally had some time outside of planning for student teaching and applying for teaching jobs in Illinois.
I was sitting the local library after grading and job applying when I thouht, Why am I not applying? So, I brought the application back up and am just drafting my essay responses now. I will have to wait a little bit and ask around for three letters of recommendation.
And, the weird part is just hitting me now. I posted the news to my Facebook feed and I got a really quick adrenaline rush… some excitement that I just have not had in such a long time. Am I relieved? Excited? Nervous? Feeling accomplished? Or, am I stoked about getting out of this country again? There is so much spinning in circles in my head. There are some weeks during student teaching that I just felt like I got through in a complete daze. Last week was not necessarily one of them. Things are really starting to look up with regards to my teaching, etc. So, what am I doing? Seriously, how can I be so uncertain why I am getting such a rush?
