Hello all! I’ve never done a blog before, but here goes. I am leaving on Friday for Washington DC where I will do my orientation for the Peace Corps in Bulgaria. After that, I don’t know when I’ll have internet access, but I’ll try to keep you guys up to speed on my adventures. I take the GRE (grad school admission test) the day after tomorrow, so this’ll be brief. I’m going to send out e-mails to people who are interested, so please write me with your e-mail address if so (I’m EmilyGroene@gmail.com). I just said goodbye to three Erins in two days, so it’s been pretty busy here already. It feels weird, like something I just talk about a lot that isn’t ever going to happen, but I guess it’s starting to hit me now for real. Whew! Here we go!
