I said goodbye to my friend Sarah last night (she is leaving for the summer this weekend), at dinner with Ryan, Sarah, and Lauren. Every time I say goodbye to someone, the whole mad enterprise feels a little closer. A new butterfly crowds in with the others in my stomach. I'm terrifically excited, if also scared to death. Ryan and I are planning an epic roadtrip for a goodly chunk of June; we'll keep you posted on whether or not it works out!

If you want me to make up an alias for when I mention you here, let me know, and I will think up something only a little bit embarrassing to hide your identity. Policy for now is first names only. (And yes, I did spell your name wrong on purpose. You know why, I think.)

First post!!

Greetings, O Readers. My name is Robert, and I am going to be a Peace Corps Volunteer in Swaziland! My start day is June 23rd. I will be working in HIV/AIDS education.
