Fare thee well, America

Greetings from the fair land of Boston College.
I hope this finds you and finds you well. I'm not sure when I'll be on the computer again, so this is probably really my last update from this country.
The past two weeks have been awesome; getting to know amazing people, hearing excellent stories of service past, getting lots of information to keep us safe, well fed, mentally well, and emotionally stable.
Days have lasted from around 7:45am to 10:30pm, so we are all quite exhausted and welcoming our departure.
I leave on Sunday from here at 5:15am for an 8:30 flight to Miami. After an hour layover there, we leave at 12:30pm and arrive in Belize City at 12:40pm (hooray time differences!).
There will be many pictures and far better stories in the coming months, so I apologize that this is weak. I promise they'll get better and hopefully approach the 10,000 views the Botswana blog has won.
Welp, bye for now. Send me notes. It'll be great. I'll miss you dearly.

My Address!!!

Hey everybody, which probably is like 6 people right now.
I leave Monday, which is July 19, for orientation at Boston College. From there I fly out to Belize on August 1. I probably won't have computer access at BC, so this might be my last post from America, so I figure I'll make it count.
If you feel so inclined to send me a letter, then you can send it here:

Jeremy Shea
Jesuit Volunteer Corps
St. Peter Claver Rectory
PO Box 25
Punta Gorda, BELIZE

Apparently I have a phone number too:
I have no idea what happens if you call that number though, so don't try it just yet.

So, I'm currently packing the essentials/procrastinating packing anything, as well as feeling quite excited and anxious for departure. I mostly will miss you.
Thus, I must continue packing then have a sweet camping shabang tonight.
Fare thee well and the next update should be coming from Belize. When that is, I have no idea. Perhaps the middle of August? Earlier? We shall see.
Thanks for visiting and check back soon!


Keep exploring. Keep discovering.
