gobble gobble gobble

Well, it's time for the cold turkey. I leave for my permament site tomorrow, which will not have Internet, thus it's time for me to give up my Internet addiction.

I guess you could say I'm feeling every emotion possible: nervous, excited, scared, impatient, hopeful, and everything else under the sun. I know it won't be as terrible as I'm picturing, but it is going to be difficult to say good-bye to all the other volunteers I've come to know over the past 3 months, meet an entire new town, and then still not have daily contact with my family and friends back home. We shall see how long it takes me to adjust this time. At host family house #1 it pretty much took me 3 months to feel like I knew what was going on. I'm hoping this time it will take less since I'm more accustomed to the country and it's not such a huge culture shock.

I'll be staying with host family #2 for 3 months, and after that I have the option of either moving into my own house/rented room or staying with the family at their house. I guess it's too early to tell, but I have a feeling I'll try to find my own place to stay at.

Well, I guess it's time to go. Hopefully I'll be able to get back online sometime next week. Closing thought: I'd rather go cold-turkey than be a chicken and never do it at all.
