Just get here already

For some reason, this week has decided to go by as slowly as possible.  It just might have something to do with the life-changing event this Friday.  FRIDAY IS FLAG DAY.  I truly believe that I will get a high post (one of 16 that I bid high).  I will be really ecstatic with any of those highs.  But two of them are starting to freak me out. These are both English-speaking posts.  That means that I will be leaving for post soon.  Like, I could be leaving in MAY.  I have not entirely wrapped my head around that idea.  For 19 months, this process has moved at a snail's pace (this week included).  If I get one of those two posts, I will be leaving really soon.

(Let me be perfectly clear, I WANT both of these posts, I am just freaked out about the timeline).


  1. Good luck with getting one of your high picks, we'll be in that situation in about six weeks. It's exciting to read about people who are so, so close to finding out where they are going.

  2. It's Friday, and that means that the Fourth Weekly State Department Blog Roundup is up - and you're on it!
