I finally got my taxes done and checked my bank account to find my return is in! This means I can pay off a credit card so now I have 4 grand to go on debt with interest! Paying my parents back and school loans are what will be next to pay off so I will no longer be in debt.
Still no word from Peace Corps, but it can be considered too early to hear anything. I've almost wanted to email them about a couple things, but have decided to wait until I have all the information I want to send them. (Even though someone in the FPCV group received an invite for November of this year!)
I realize others may have a differing opinion, but I think patience IS a skill either learned or at least refined during the process!
