Happy New Year

As the new year rolls in, I’m thinking about what life will be like so far away from my family.  I also reflect on how much I want to talk and tell people all about my journey, but I don’t because if I don’t get it I won’t have to relive it over and over again while telling people and what’s worst than failing, everyone knowing about it. Also because sometimes you just want people to be happy about your decisions but they aren’t always and then you have to hear all the reasons why your decision is not a good one. (We all do it)

My family has a tradition of cooking breakfast together every first day of the year and this year it was held at my house rather than my moms because of how much our family has grown and I have the most space. As my family laughed, ate and watched a movie together, I thought about the possibility of me not being in the same country with them next year.  That will be hard.

I actually think I have a really good chance of getting the job this time. I’m learning a lot from my TEFL classes I’m taking online.  The information will help me with my interview questions, I hope.  I’ve read a few blogs and visited a few discussion boards and got some insight on the type of questions I will be asked during my face to face interview. Plus I still remember some from last time.

So as I wait for my interview dates for ADEC and the yes or no for the face to face with Qatar and Kuwait, I will continue to read about living and working in these countries, the good and the bad. I will continue preparing my paperwork and learning through my TEFL course. I will continue praying for God’s will.
