I've said this to some of you privately in emails or phone calls, but I'll reiterate it here: the first few months of being in site are really really difficult. It's hard to describe if you're not living it, but work is a totally different animal here, community integration is hard, and it's easy to feel alone.
I came to the Peace Corps ready to be all alone for 2 years. I didn't come ready to spend three months with some fantastic people, form some phenomenal relationships and friendships, and THEN get to site and be all alone. I miss my Peace Corps friends, and I can't wait till I can leave my site (this weekend) to see them.
I turn 26 on sunday. I feel old
