F*** My Peace Corps Life.

Some days, all you can do is laugh.


Beautiful country, generous, welcoming people, counterparts that want to work with me, and students who make me feel like I'm making a difference. What's not to like?

The American Peace Corps staf here shamelessly play favorites, no matter how hard you work for your community or how many successful projects you have completed.

Was without permission in a major city working on a computer donation for my school, when I got mugged by two guys and subsequently stabbed in the chest, fighting them off. No bullshit. Glad they got my phone with absolutely zero dollars in it though.

Got accepted to "help out" with a camp. Got free food. The equivalent of a months salary for 3 days of "work". A nice hotel room to myself with hot water. And hot women to stare at. #poshcorps #bitches

Been depressed for about a couple months now. I haven't been in to the office consistently for months, because my CP has been a bitch to me from the start of service. For instance, she doesn't even acknowledge my presence, even when I say hello to her.
