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:
