Yesterday I received my final questions from the Health Placement Desk. I was able to get everything filled out, submit an updated resume, and update my contact information shortly after receiving the documents, and sent everything back before bed last night. I think Peace Corps applicants surely hold internet-speed records for fastest response and submissions rates – ha!
This morning I awoke to the following email:
Should you have any additional questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me.
Woohoo! Looks like I’m almost, ALMOST there. Now begins the desperate desire to check my email every 10 seconds JUST in case PC emailed me with my invitation. Pretty exciting!
I know I have up to eight weeks of waiting ahead of me, but my gut tells me that I’ll be hearing sooner. Hopefully MUCH sooner, as I seriously think I’m going to develop high blood pressure with all this anticipation. As a reminder, my nomination was originally for a departure within the first week of September for the health sector. I was also advised that I would need to be a good swimmer – an odd but telling clue (at least to my PC obsessive brain). If I were a bettin’ gal, I would probably be putting some money on Fiji right about now. But! We’ll see!
