I often get asked why I write so many posts about US politics, or random science crap, and so few Peace Corps-related posts, or even sometimes about my jaded tone. I got an email yesterday:
Why are you always so negative? You're giving the Peace Corps a bad name. Focus on the positive aspects of your experience, talk more about your village!My answer is that this is my own personal space, and I follow wherever my random, disorganized thoughts lead. I'm jaded and cynical because I value straightforwardness and honesty very highly, and I call it like I see it. If you don't like it, feel free to direct your browser elsewhere. Questions, comments, and requests are always welcome, but please don't gripe about how I'm harshing your mellow—I do this for free.
