$23 well spent!

Yesterday I had my phone interview with the CELTA program in Thailand (who knew it would cost that much???). I've been accepted to the program!! I guess there wasn't much of a chance that I wouldn't get accepted, but still... it's good to have that part done. I still need to actually pay for the course... then there's the pre-course assignment, and all the recommended reading. It's just one more step in the path to "This is really happening!"

Of course, now that I've been accepted into the Thailand CELTA , I just got a call to interview for the CELTA program in San Francisco. I applied to that one like three weeks ago and they never got back to me.... in fact when I called to ask when I would hear from them about the interview they just gave me a non-answer. So it's funny how things work out.

You know, I had all these plans for how I was going to spend my time unemployed. I really tried to get into the mindset of "New Rebel" vs. "Old Rebel". But so far the only difference is that New Rebel makes the bed in the morning. New Rebel has also become a major night-owl. I've been staying up until around 2pm or later... which was unheard of when I was employed. My bedtime should be closer to 11pm.... or at the latest midnight. It's not that I'm actually doing anything, I just watch TV until midnight, then take my time getting ready for bed, and then I pick up a book. Part of me feels that this is a real problem... you know since it means I don't actually get up and out of the house until the next afternoon. But then, Thailand's time zone is about 14 hours ahead, so I guess it couldn't hurt to start resetting my internal clock.

Not to much else going on right now. I'm working on some crafty projects right now... but nothing I can photograph right now.

Congratulations! My friend Erin & her husband recently moved to China to teach English- but to middle schoolers! (horror!)
It has been fun keeping up with her culture shocks and really funny stories. Can't wait to read yours.

Yeah!! And welcome to the world of ridiculously expensive international calls (and may I introduce you to "skype" which, if both parties use it, means you talk for free)!
