Not dead. I just graduated from grad school with that whole MFA thing. Now I'm finally out, but studying for my EC - 6 teaching certification so I can teach internationally. A true wanderer I will be, starting with Asia (South Korea) if I should have any luck. While China is viable, the general language just really really grates on my ears. Japan is too expensive. Plus I follow more things about S. Korea thanks to first watching their TV dramas ages ago and then discovering one could teach abroad (originally looking at ESL, now slightly changed gears). Looking at other places, but after living in the Bay area I've decided I want to go wherever I won't need a car. Return to public transportation after a year of driving I already know will be very, very welcomed.
Yes, I put the PHD thing on hold as I'm burned out and all I want to do is teach and write (while travelling). Oh yeah. And start serious dating-for-a-relationship finally once I get settled for hopefully two+ years somewhere. Not to mention pay off over 90,000 dollars in loans. Plus GRE kicked my ass.
Anyways, now I should head off to bed as I plan to at least friggin walk those 4 - 5 miles if I'm not running them. I can't wait to have my friggin' schedule somewhat in order when classes start.
Oh yeah, and I'm almost done writing my book. On hold currently with studying for my degree. After tomorrow's reading section it'll just be two math problems a day while I read through Social Studies, Science, Arts/Phys Ed/Music, and then remind myself about Language Arts. I need to pass this the first time around and before July when the twice a week classes start up. Then I'll have a year for the final one. Otherwise it'll just be hunting down a job.
On the bright side I'm going to try and start weasling my way into international schools by asking one if I can get my 15 observation hours observing a class of their's.
TL;DR Life update to meet OMONA posting because I've gotten into lurking instead of posting.
Edit again: Haha, looks like I had met the requirements after, but whatever. I LIIIIIVVVVEEEEE. Yeah, time for bed.
