i’ve been thinking lately about what i want to do.

breeincouleur:

i can go to grad school.

but, i’ve been dabbling with the idea of the Peace Corps for the past few months. its been in the back of my head, kind of nagging me to look into it. every since Tyler, one of my greatest friends, left for Tanzania…

can i handle something like that?

i almost think i’m too selfish.

but, the experience. would be unbelievable.
