2 Week Countdown

T-minus two weeks to America. Holy cow, this is for real. Let's talk about some good things, eh? Take my mind off the scary parts.

A Second Interview 


I have a second interview {for a dream job} set up for the day after we get back to CA. In my last vlog I talked about how I'd love to work for a university & someday start teaching classes. Well, this is my foot in the door. It's not a teaching position, but it is an educational technology position. In this case, it means that I would be helping the university in it's e-learning department.

The Unphished Techy


This weekend I attended my 6th RSO Farewell Banquet in Dominica. You can see pictures from the last banquet, here. Basically, it's an excuse to get dressed up & have a celebration with friends! It's tradition to give the leaving members a silly award, and I was named "The Unphished Techy." It's two-fold because 1- I hate all things fish and 2- My websites don't get hacked. (ha! knock on wood.)

Cleaning My Closet


My closet was a wreck. It has floor to ceiling shelves (like bookshelves), which I managed to turn into a floor to ceiling pile of clothes. A friend came over & helped me to pull every last thing out of the closet to put into sell, donate, or keep piles. I'm not kidding when I say that I got rid of two-thirds of my wardrobe this week. What I'm really excited about is going shopping back in the states to replace some of those items! {job reward?!}

Free Alt Classes


Has anyone else taken advantage of the free classes from ALT + Bing? The teachers are all really knowledgable and pack so much in to a quick one-hour class. I've taken classes on Business Cards & Pinterest so far. And now I am slightly obsessed totally excited to start work on my own creative business cards! Check out my pinterest inspiration board :)

Do you have anything good to share?

Oh yay for your interview, that's really awesome!! And yes, you should totally reward yourself with a back in CA shopping spree when you get the job! I didn't know anything about those classes but I'll check them out. I love your business card pins a lot.

Yay for interviews!! I'm sure you will do just wonderfully. I actually wanted to be a professor by the end of my senior year of college. I was a TA for a Middle East ancient history class and an art history class. Totally fell in love with giving lectures, discussions, working with students to understand concepts and events. Unfortunately, my undergraduate work and career was focused on analytical and strategic skills for a government job, but I'm hoping this MA will open the gate to some PhD opportunities so I can join the ranks with you!

Speaking of purging of closets, I've been doing quite the opposite ha! I have nothing but SUIT filling the closet, so I have been on a buying spree for some normal clothes for school. I did get rid of 80% of my clothes senior year of college. Dont you feel so... clean?

and I just share a lot... perhaps too much :)
