I just returned from a two-and-a-half week trip to Mediterranean Europe. I visited Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, and Montenegro all within a very short span of time.

Maybe that was my fault for not prioritizing those documents; but, in my defense, I was under an incredibly tight time schedule. Continue reading “I failed the interview with Interac”
I completed the TEFL. I can start applying for jobs in both Korea and Japan. Of course I will apply to the both major dispatch companies, EPIK for Korea and JET for Japan, but I also want to do research on more areas in Japan that would give me similar benefits of Korea. I want to go to Japan, but Korea has greater financial incentives. Continue reading “Korea or Japan? Just do it”
