I am 7% done with my Peace Corps adventure. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to understand time here in Morocco. It’s only been eight weeks since I left the States. It feels like it’s been a year. The thing is, my time here feels like it is flying by. It just doesn’t make any sense. To add more to the confusion, everyone back home is now an hour closer to me since Morocco doesn’t do Daylight Saving Time. We found this out by trying to explain to our Language and Cultural Facilitator what DST is. We confused her and came away with the understanding that there is no DST in Morocco.
Sorry for the sabbatical. Studying is intense in the first few months of Peace Corps. The thing is, it works. I’m holding full conversations with my host family now. I’m sure it’ll be easier to keep updating once I get to my final site. Below is my first full piece of writing while in Morocco. I am still doing a lot of writing–just not anything I can put on here. I write in my journal on a daily basis. I’m also doing well on the script I started a few weeks back. It’ll be a long process, but it is definitely coming together.
