Back in the US

I have returned to the United States (10 months after leaving) and am still adjusting to life as an American. The first day was definitely weird since it seemed like everyone had an accent but as each day goes on things get better and better. A huge thanks to everyone who stopped by last Thursday....it was great to see everyone again. I am getting used to how big everything is after living in Europe and getting back into my old habits. Of course my room is a disaster as I'm working on unpacking after being gone for a year. I'm also preparing to start working this week and get all my college stuff ready for next year. The summer weather is also a nice break from all the rain that we had in Belgium. I hope everyone else is enjoying their summers too. I am guessing this is my last post since now I'm home and no longer living in Belgium. Thank you for all your support during the year and I hope the blog kept everyone somewhat informed. Have a great summer!

I think it really depends on what you are ready for mentally and emotionally. Talk with administrators and volunteers that work with the program that you are going abroad with to see what their opinions are. Personally, I would wait at least a year, but everyone's experience is unique and you will ultimately be the best judge of what you are ready for. Good luck!
