Simple serendipities every day
One of the many things that I've come to embrace about my new life in Indonesia are the simple serendipities happening to me on a daily basis.
Days like today make me laugh and take a step back to think about how different every aspect of my life is after joining the Peace Corps.
Upon returning home from teaching classes and holding extracurricular activities, I was given a shirt and told, "Ayo! Kita main voli." ("Let's go! We're playing volleyball.") I spent the next few hours participating (to the best of my ability) in a village-organized volleyball tournament run by all of my neighbors.
If someone had asked me as a freshman in college where I thought I'd be after graduation, never in a million years would my answer be, "I'll be playing volleyball in Indonesia."
And now, I couldn't be happier that it is.
