Soooooo.... It's the end of October and I am still waiting for a nomination or a "So sorry Bridge, you are great but we just don't have enough programs / money right now. Thanks for your interest in the Peace Corps". Any thing would be nice at this point. Yes I am aware that this is all about patience and I am trying very hard to stay calm and keep busy. I think I'm doing a decent job at that soooo yeah.
I did speak with my recruiter a few weeks ago since he was at the job fair my school put on. It was nice to see him, get my name and face fresh in his head again. But he basically told me what I already knew. More waiting because programs closed, there is no funding, government craziness. The usual.
So for all of you out there in a similar situation, know that you're not alone and that patience really is a virtue. And stop reading those PC blogs, they are so addicting! I had to slowly ween myself off.
