Top 10 Things You Should Do Before Your Peace Corps Service

The list below was written for my departure to Indonesia for 2+ years

1. Telephone (not just text) with people that are meaningful to you.

2. Spend quality time with family and friends.

3. Invest money (do it! Be smart about your money while you are away).
4. Eat a lot of pizza.
5. Visit Taco Bell (Mexican food is hard to find in other countries).
6. Cross at least one item off your bucket list.
7. Make a mistake (or two) before you depart and learn from it.
8. Say sorry to someone you have hurt before.
9. Set realistic goals for your Peace Corps (PC) service. Write them down.
10. Write down the reasons why you are joining the PC and bring it with you for those difficult days during your service (trust me, this service will challenge you beyond what you can anticipate).
