I know what you are thinking! Where have you been Tamara?
Haha yes! I know I haven’t posted in quite some time but for a good reason.
I’ve been busy! So much to the point that I absolutely hate the word “BUSY” now!
Well a few of my Peace Corps projects are actually growing legs. I feel like I start a new one every week!
I am working with our local Women’s Sector Committee now which is exciting. For the past 12 months I spent way too much time trying to resuscitate the group. Now finally we have a committee of women eager to plan activities geared towards educating our community on issues such as teen pregnancy, the risk of multiple concurrent partners and healthy living, just to name a few topics.
I’ve also been working on a women economic empowerment project/curriculum that teaches finance and business skills to women & girls interested in becoming entrepreneurs.
This one is slowly coming together.
I’m also trying to start a mapping/GIS project with our town planner to help map this little township. Oh and let’s not forget the theater group I started with an HIV+ activist!
Yes it sounds like a ton but some days I feel as though I could be doing more! We have our mid-service training coming up the week of November 16th as well. I can’t believe I am at the half way point already.
Yay me for making it this far!
Another project that I am working on which is not P.C. related is a new ebook! I started this one in June and am still working on it. Actually in August and September I was a bit lazy and didn’t take much action on it. But I snapped out of it thanks to Regina Anaejionu! I follow her work and advice religiously and recently purchased her 3 Day Create book. It has helped me to get it together! And most importantly get it done!
This ebook should drop before Christmas. It’s actually more of a guidebook which helps you to maintain your mental clarity while traveling!
But here is a sneak peak:
The last project I want to mention which is really exciting is Black 2 Travel!
This is a movement that myself and a fellow traveler created a few weeks ago. We are launching it by introducing the project with a twitter chat on November 4th 2015.
If you use twitter please join us at 7PM CST to learn more about it!
I kinda want to keep you in suspense hehe.
But if you want to know more right now, or “now now” as the say in Botswana, join the Facebook page here.
Also here is the ad for our chat:
Let me know how you guys are doing in the comments below!
