This is the first time in awhile I feel at a loss of words to write anything on here. I feel as if I’ve been blindsided with everything that has happened the past few months. Such an onslaught of different emotions and feelings, it’s hard to encapsulate them all. I hear that the first six months of the Peace Corps is the hardest. On top of integrating into a new culture and two tragic deaths I experienced this year, I am excited that this period is over and looking forward to what the New Year will bring.

I am going home to the United States in three days to spend Christmas with my family, and I’ve never been more excited to go back home than I am now. I miss my parents, my siblings, my dog. I miss my friends and my grandparents and all of my cousins and aunts and uncles. I miss American restaurants, the breezy Florida winter weather, the transportation, clean houses where I don’t have to be constantly vigilant about crickets, because with them come the spiders. I miss hot showers and covers instead of my sleeping bag. I miss wi-fi. Starbucks, Target, Walgreens.

I’m taking a little break from blogging to focus on being home with family and re-charging. I’m excited to come back to my life in Paraguay with a fresh perspective. See you in the New Year!
