Delayed Posting due to Future

I never really get personal in my blog posts. I try to keep it to news and comments on technology but since I promised to never be delayed like this, I owe you something.

Here's the deal. I have been trying to do some soul searching or life searching. I haven't found a job or gotten an opportunity for full time employment anywhere. I have been looking into moving to South Korea to teach English for a year with ASK Now (Access South Korea Now).

I know this makes no sense to many people (it doesn't make much sense to me). So I made a mini-website with the reasons why I want to go, research, information about the job and moving there. The site is for public view at the moment but in the future I may make it private. It is still not completed because I am unsure as to whether I will be teaching at the school they offered me a position at or whether I will have the option to teach at a different school.

I am keeping my options open at the moment. If an amazing job opportunity presents itself soon then I may not go. For the moment, I have nothing keeping me here in the US of A. Unless you know something I don't know.

Someone once told me that "you don't have to start your career now. Whatever you do at this moment in your life will not define you or set you back from beginning a career." The one thing I have taken from reading, "Roadtrip Nation" is to follow your heart or passion. Take the opportunities thrown at you because you never know where they will lead you.

Please feel free to give me your opinions or comments.

Thank you for sticking with me and I will try to keep things figured out so there won't be anymore delays.

I couldn't agree more, Carolyn, that you don't have to worry so much about that "first step" in your professional career. My advice to students is "Don't Take Yourself so Seriously". It'll all work out. Enjoy this time in your life where so much is uncertain -- and so much is possible...
