I realize that it has been nearly 20 days since I last posted, and I know from my vast wealth of blogging knowledge that that is a big NO NO.
BUT. I’m a student with really hard classes, a job…and I actually like to sleep.
While I know I have only posted once on Guatemala (if you could call that a real post), I do have some in the works…that I’m hoping to get out (one of them) in a no later than a week and a half…? I’m really going to try.
While these past several weeks have been full of lost of homework, tests, projects etc. something supremely awesome happened that actually has to do with what this blog is supposed to be about.
I sent in my application to the school in Thailand this past Wednesday.
I’ve never had to send something like this, so when I got to the post office I was a little confused. Thankfully, the post office staff was kind enough to direct me to the right envelope. There’s a big difference in spending $5.00 and $22.00, especially when the day of arrival is only by a day. I don’t want to seem too eager.
More of my exciting walk to the post office! It’s literally a 2 minute walk!
And me after mailing off!
Now, I know many (or at least a few) are wondering the dreaded what-happens-if-I’m-not-accepted scenario occurs. Well, I’ve thought about it…and I really think I’ll still go somewhere regardless…but maybe just wait to after the summer. I might still go to Thailand, or maybe even go back to Guatemala for a little time first.
I’m not worried though, especially since the job I’m applying for isn’t competitive at all. I probably haven’t mentioned it before, but what I’m applying for is on a voluntary basis. I will not get paid, unless I plan to stay on a second year. While that might sound like a sucky deal, I don’t think it is. The school is non-profit and gives full-ride scholarships to all of its students…so it probably can’t afford to pay lots of teachers.
Despite this though (the whole I’m not worried thing) I randomly will ask members of my family, “Do you think I’ll get accepted?” or “When do you think I’ll find out?”
I think I’m annoying them.
I know I only sent it off Wednesday, and it only got to their P.O. Box Friday (its in California)…I can’t help but feel as if it has been forever.
But I think that’s mostly due to the fact that this is all-I-have-been-looking-forward-to for nearly 2 1/2 years.
I can wait a few weeks to find out, right?
Yes, but I can’t help but check my email twenty times a day.
