This was a year of a lot of change in my life. While simple, the first change was the removal of my wisdom teeth. This was part of the medical clearance work that I needed to do in order to join the Peace Corps. To this day, the Peace Corps application process is one of the hardest application processes that I have ever done. It was hard because of the level of detail required by the medical portion and the slowness of bureaucracy. I don’t think I knew w/ 100% certainty that I was going to Samoa until after I graduated from school. It was a nerve-wracking time and about the only time in my life where I didn’t clearly know what the next step was.

I remember going into that last year of grad school both excited and nervous at the same time.
