Applying to the Peace Corps

The Peace Corps is something I've wanted to do for a long time but things always came up so I waited. Now, there is no more waiting. Spencer and I have applied for the Peace Corps!

The application process is long and currently it's a lot of paperwork and a lot of waiting.

We submitted our applications online and a few weeks later a recruiter contacted us to set up an interview. Our interview was over 3 hours long(!), we did well and received a nomination from our recruiter. Yay!

A nomination basically means we passed the interview and our recruiter (who is a returned Peace Corps volunteer, herself) thinks we would be good volunteers. We filled out more paperwork, got fingerprinted, and are now waiting to hear from a Placement Officer who will (hopefully!) place us in a program somewhere in the world.

It's a very exciting time!! But it's also filled with weeks of no news and lots of waiting time but it's okay because we get to spend the meantime exploring Australia, which is an adventure in itself!
