So many things I want to do.
Wednesday. 2.22.12 10:25 am
I found out yesterday that I didn't get into the International Business program at my University.

You'd think I would be sad, but I'm actually okay with it. I was taken back a bit at first not because I didn't get in, but because I didn't know what my plan was from there. But I DO know what my plan is. I'll continue with Marketing, and try to reapply next year (hopefully when my GPA is a little bit higher (not that my GPA is low, I have a 3.5, but the program directors like students in the program to have a 3.8 or higher -_-))

But! Because of all of this, it got me thinking. I would LOVE to teach English in another country. The three main countries I'd like to teach are China, Korea, and Brazil. I'd love to teach for a year in each place to see which one I like best.

I don't know if I should try to teach abroad right out of college, or if I should go to grad school to get my masters in Education. If I had my masters I'd definitely be more qualified for more jobs.

On another note, giving up junk food for lent! If this doesn't work I don't know what will, honestly. And by junk food I mean: no soda, no candy, no chocolate bars, no fried foods, no coffee (the ONLY time I will drink coffee is when I need to stay awake and avoid soda at the same time), no pastries, no super sweet breakfast foods (like anything with syrup), and so on.

I realize this is pretty intense, but if this goal for Lent doesn't motivate me, I don't know what will.

What are your plans for after college?

I would suggest teaching in other countries first...my brother used a program for teaching English in China, and he went into it 1) not knowing Chinese--AT ALL, and 2) not having any sort of teaching background. You don't need much to qualify you for these jobs, but you COULD use these experiences for a badass resume for admission into graduate school.

one thing i regretted for not doing right after college is taking masters. i should not give myself some time allowance to work before going back to studies. now i'm very 'rusty' and no more mood to study masters. and my dreams is to study until phd.
