waking up to opportunity

after weeks of having no idea what i want to be when i grow up, i woke up this morning to two emails.

one telling me that i have been selected to participate in a week long training to be part of ocha's protection capacity roster in bangkok.  there were only 5 spots for canadians and i got one.  thank you norwegian government.

and another inviting me to be interviewed for a position in uzbekistan with one of the few un agencies that i would like to work with.  i am really not sure it is the right fit for me, but i will answer their questions about my strengths, weaknesses, knowledge of trafficking of persons (lots) and drugs (none) and see what they have to say.

so, yay.

and decisions.

and a little bit of eek, too.

but mostly, yay.
