Here I am in Guatemala, serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer (PCV) in Youth Development. It seemed natural to start a blog about my life as a PCV, both as a personal outlet and a way to keep friends and family informed. Unlike journaling, blogging presented me with the issue of audience: who am I writing to? How do I maintain such a one-sided conversation? I wanted to make this blog more personal that that; I wanted to be able to direct my entries to somebody, regardless if this someone actually reads it or not.
Thus this blog is an experiment of sorts; blending personal and public, allowing me to correspond with those I love and miss in a public forum, while affording me an outlet to reflect on my daily life and experiences living and serving abroad.
This blog will be a mixture of personal entries about my day-to-day life in Guatemala and personal letters written to my dearest friends and family. I welcome your responses!
Many adventures to come...
