completely miniscule update...

I received an email from a placement assistant today requesting an updated resume. So, even though I haven't technically received my medical clearance letter yet, that is clearly PROOF that I'm indeed cleared for the next step.

Can I get a big WOOHOO from my people in PCjournalstalkerworld?? :)

Your time will come soon!

4/10/10-Update: I received the letter in question over the weekend. So I can do my dance of relief after all. I'm CLEARED, I'm CLEARED, I'm REALLY REALLY CLEARED!! lol...that's all for now. :-P


  1. Can you blog stalk a blog stalker? Thanks for leaving a comment and making yourself known :) I'm the volunteer with "egg on her face" and all over my kitchen floor! I am still finding microwave glass from that incident. I saw you left a comment and since I am a reformed applicant blog stalker, I wanted to check you out. I was quite excited to see your a sistah applying to be a PCV! Good luck with everything. Maybe you'll come to Ecuador. You totally made a guinea pig joke with out even trying. That has Ecuador written all over it. I'm here to support ya if you have any questions :)

  2.'re great. Now that we've got that outta the way (lol), thank youuuu! I definitely spend a good deal of my time scouring the journals to find other applicants and/or volunteers "of color" so I can try to get a taste of what's to come. That's how I found your blog. I wonder what your keyword was...hmm...I started out with the obvious like "black" and "african american", but those were so vague that EVERYONE's blog would pop up. So I started getting creative and throwing in words like "locs" and "sista" and other random black woman-esque words lol

    Anywho, enough of my rambling...keep blogging so we can keep in touch...I'd love to come to Ecuador (really, I'd love to come anywhere, but you get my point lol)

  3. Well, not to rain on your parade, but just cuz the PO assistant emailed you doesn't necessarily mean you're medically cleared yet :( BUT it does mean placement has at least started your review, I think it's just cuz your departure date is in the near(ish) future. I got an email from them too even though I had a medical hold on my account. The PO even said that until I was "cleared" they couldn't continue my review, she was just completing my file to be ready for review. So yeah, still awesome though! :)

  4. so...parade officially rained on! lol..jkjk...i gladly accept all tips and advice.

    i just hope that is not the case for me...i don't have any health issues, so i can't imagine what the hold would be for...we'll see

  5. OMG! I'm dying laughing over the "keyword" search!! Classic. I WOULD be that predictable. I so wish you know what keyword pegged me too! I just remembered to check back in on you. I thought I had emailed you, but I guess not. I've fallen behind in blogs, but I'm hoping you are progressing steadily. I'll keep checkin on you and sending you Super Invitation Vibes! Suerte Chica. Feel free to hit me up to if you have any questions!
