Traveling in My Shoes

Wednesday, January 27, 2010 happened

I'm moving to South Korea Feb. 26 until Feb. 28, 2011. AHHHHHHHHHHH I'm literally beaming with excitement, but also terrified beyond belief. But, it will be an amazing experience and I think I may be too busy over the next few weeks to even think about how frightened I am.

So, that's all I can write right now. Thanks for the encouraging words over the past couple months, they were definitely helpful!!!

They made contact!!! haha Last night I got an e-mail from Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education stating they got my resume and want to set up an interview!! OMG!! I was in a total panic last night and wasn't sure what to do. But, today, more excitement than panic. So, I'm in the process of filling out yet another application and will hopefully be able to send it in tonight and get this thing rolling.

No more panicking, I need to stay calm. And how do I do that? I read other people's blogs. lol So here are some that I have come across that I know at least one of you will enjoy...Genevieve!!! lol

So, check these out...they are amazing. Especially the first one, she has given me a lot of ideas!!

No news...still waiting. Trying to find other options...but trying to stay optimistic (even though it's extremely difficult to be at this point).

But, I'm finding that putting my AWESOME cricut to good use and getting my creative juices flowing yet again, has gotten my mind off the frustration of my situation. haha So, if anyone is interested at all in what all I've been up to with my Cricut and just bored self...take a looksee here:

That's all for now.

White Christmas

So, I suppose those who wished for a White Christmas got their wish. I for one didn't really care. I just wanted to be able to get out of town Christmas day. But, since the snow came, and came, and came, and came. I'm definitely stuck at home for day 2. But, my parents and I had a good time playing the Wii, at least the games that we could play without the nunchucks. Our Wii Sports game that comes with the console doesn't work. So, that was a disappointment.

Anyways, I thought I'd share some pics of the mountain of snow outside our front door. Since it was so windy, it al accumulated in front of our house.

This is a pic from the front porch on Christmas Eve about 6:00 P.M.

This is a pic from the front porch Christmas Day at 11:30 A.M.

I tried to give an example of how much snow there really is.

So, it's looking like I will have a job come March in South Korea. It's not for sure yet, but some what a strange e-mail said ,"there is an opening in March and someone will be in contact with me from the Ministry of Education prior to my arrival." So, I'm trying to get a clear reading on this from Yoo Yoon who I've been in contact with in Dallas to see if that is really what this e-mail is saying. Please keep your fingers crossed!!!

Rough Day...

I learned that a close family friend passed away today. He had been battling cancer for a few years now and passed away this afternoon. Just 5 weeks to the day after my grandma passed away. Wednesdays are starting to become my least favorite day.

Please keep his family in your prayers. He has two kids as well as a wonderful wife. So, please keep them in your thoughts.
