Trying to stay on top of the Wiki Timeline: I make sure its up to date with all the recent invites and doesn't include any from past years or speculation. I have fun with it.

I applied for the Peace Corps on February 28th. In March I was nominated for Community Development in Francophone Sub-Saharan Africa leaving in July 2008. I was more than elated. An hour later my recruiter called me back and said that the nominations for the program were actually full already (later I learned there was a computer glitch during that week). I was then nominated for Youth Development in Latin America leaving in August 2008. Finally, I was invited for Youth Development in El Salvador leaving on September 14th, staging in DC. To my shock, as well as my family and friend's shock, and all my PC acquaintances, I declined the invitation.

In the mean time, my application is deactivated, and I have a year to "reactivate" my application. If I wait longer than that, then I will have to reapply, start from scratch. In the mean time, I will be working in China for a year to teach English, and then reapply. I can't wait, and its driving me nuts to have to, but good things come to those who wait! I really hope to do TEFL in NA/ME, EE/CA, or Africa.
