I'm normally an extremely even-keeled sort (as in, I've been called a robot by more than one ex-girlfriend). But wrapping up my service here is inducing all kinds of emotional turmoil. The volunteers in my group are dropping like flies—my neighbor is gone, so I'm again alone in the valley. Cooper over in Cambodia, one of my fellow Peace Corps blog-obsessives, has closed up shop. I keep thinking about all the things I will likely never do again. It's strange and disorienting, and I just want it to be over already. Eish!
