I’m booked for China

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

12th of February – I leave for Beijing! WoooHooo!

Quick recap on my job search: The past two months have been nothing but applications, waiting, phone interviews, waiting, paperwork, waiting, more paperwork and more waiting. Instead of sitting here, twiddling my thumbs and waiting for the right contract to come along, I’ve decided to take the advice of a friend who taught English in China for three years. She suggested that I fly to China, look into the schools of interest that are hiring, and apply in person. So I’m going to do just that! Plus, there are advantages of applying in person: first impressions, contract negotiation, etc… I’m in the process of cutting my cities down as to where I plan on teaching so I’ll keep you guys posted.

So how do I feel right now?

I’m freakin’ excited but in all honesty a bit scared. I am moving a gazillion miles away to a new country.

Am I still going?

Heck yessss!!

P.S. To my family and friends, and I say this with all my love –  No more surprise parties! I think I cried enough back in August when I left for my first trip. Although, I think I could get use to all the surprises lol 🙂 just kidding.

Xièxie (Thank you)

Happy 2009 everyone!

Where did the time go? This year flew by…. then again I say that every year. Hope you all had a safe and wonderful time bringing in the New Year! 2008 was an amazing year for me so I can’t wait to see what 2009 will bring – I’m sure it’ll be EPIC! And to be moving to China, what a great way to start off the New Year! 

2009 Resolution: To learn Mandarin Chinese!  

To my family and friends: I’m blessed to be surrounded by amazing individuals. Thank you again for the love and support! I love and miss you all so much. Happy New Year!
