Housing Confirmed

Got confirmation that the apt I found for myself is approved and should if all goes well be my home for 2 years. PC generally finds and picks out the homes for us, but in the past, even in the late 90's, it was up to the PCV to find their own housing, so I did it old school literally.

As a funny note, the training manager coined a term for me, Josh is always up to no-good but it is never bad. And he basically rolls his eyes at me everytime I come up to him. Cause he knows I got something going on I need approval for from him. My opinion is I am using the system to push the limits.

(By the way I told this to my parents, they laughed so hard they couldn't talk for a good two minutes. They said I was doing that as a little boy. And he hit are on.)
