This is the obligatory “The day before I leave post.” Those 4 pieces of luggage are what I will be living out of for the better part of 2 years until I can start receiving packages. I’m excited/nervous/tired, but I don’t think I am going to get much sleep.
I wanted to take a minute and acknowledge the huge amount of support from all of my friends, teachers, family, and even some of my students from my student teaching! I never take that for granted, and I hope that I make you all proud.
I had my last meal in Detroit tonight, Veal Marsala with rice pilaf and broccoli with a Chocolate Raspberry Cake. Everything is so surreal, and I am beyond stoked to meet the rest of our staging class in Philadelphia!
Good luck to all the other invitees, and hopefully on Saturday I will be in Ouagadougou!
