Interview time...

I have an interview later today, and I can't wait. I'll post back when I'm done to let you know all about it!

... a few days pass...

So the interview went smashingly! The lady who conducted the interview was great, I got the job, I've sent a visa application to Korea, and now I wait. Again. I've never been very good at that... this will give me good practice!

A Job Offer!

So, guess what I got late Friday afternoon??

Hmmm... ?

Well, I guess the title of this post may have given it away, but I got a job offer from a school in Seoul and am officially one step closer to departure! Woot!

Assuming all goes well, the name of the school is Gangseo SLP, and it looks pretty neat. I've been doing a little research, and I can't wait to get on my way.

Still patiently waiting for the visa, hopefully it gets here soon!

Waitin', Waitin', I've been waitin' ...

I've gotta say, if there's one thing I don't like, it's waiting.

Now those of you who know me well, might chuckle a little at this statement. I know this is because if you know me well, chances are very high that in the past I have made you wait for me. I am very well intentioned, and yet, (I hate to admit it) terribly slow. One, because I don't tend to move very fast, and two, because I am easily distracted. Perhaps this waiting is a good exercise for me.

Of course the waiting I am referring to is for my (approved) visa to return from the Korean consulate so that I can head off to Korea.

There is nothing I can do to hurry it though, so for now, waiting is exactly what I'll do, sit and wait.

The start of a journey...

“I see my path, but I don't know where it leads. Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it." Rosalia de Castro

““Remember what Bilbo used to say: It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."" J.R.Tolkien

"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore." Andre Gide.


I am a little nervous about the start of this journey, I'm not going to lie to you. From here starts a fresh new leaf. Freshly graduated, fresh from the family nest, fresh new culture, language and country. So nervous, yes, but oh! so excited! It sounds like an adventure!
