Can You Say Konichiwa?

Okay so about two weeks ago I took a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). You can go just about anywhere in the world and use this certification. Well, I have applied for my dream job to teach in Japan. I have had two responses. One from Japan and one from Taiwan (not to sure about that one). So, I hope that by February or March 2009 I will be in Japan teaching English and living in a wonderful world. They pay for round trip airfare, give you a furnished apartment, sponsor your work visa (which is extremely expensive and hard to get), some companies will give you a car, depending on the company they pay 250,000 to 270,000 JPY which is around $2628.48 to $2834.22 USD per month. Which is pretty flipping good to only have to work 20-30 hours a week. So this is a good deal. I hope that I will be writing you good things in a couple of days.

Oh so about the other job that I was offered. Um..that is a negative. They have never called me back and I didn't get the other position. So, I am banking on leaving the country to teach and be stress free. Sounds like a plan to me. :-)

NOW for my fun part of the day. Shout out to my featured store of the day:

Okay Two's a Charm?

Errr...so I got a call today about an interview tomorrow. Uh...I just got a job yesterday. What shall I do? Dang it I'm going on that interview. I just want to see what it is about and how much money it pays. If it fits and the pay is good. I accept! Sorry it's allow about the benjamins, c-notes, cash-monays, dollas. I need more of them.  Sidetracked thought --------> There are kids playing in my front yard - GET OFF OF MY GRASS! <-------------- Aaaannnd we're back. So yea I'm going tomorrow and just check it out.

Well, I started a job at Banana Republic. I had to work today. Well, I went somewhere with my mom last night. Went to leave for work today and oy vey, couldn't find my keys! Realized they were in her car. Needless to say I couldn't go. I'm glad anyways, I'm dead beat tired. I have a bake sale on Saturday and haven't baked one cookie. *sigh* I'm so TIRED! *bangs head aaggghhhhh* Just give me money so I can sleep. Okay, *whew* I'm calm now. 

So let's give a shout out to a shop today, what do you say?
