God I wish I would just hear back from these jobs I applied for already. The waiting is the worst part. If they don't want me, fine, I have alternative plans. But I can't act until I hear back. Ideally I will get one of the jobs...but if not, then I really want to go back to China for a year or so. Teach English, save some money, improve my Chinese, and make business contacts (I already have a few). Then when I get back, I can get an MBA at College Park. |
That is the alternative plan, and I am pretty happy with it. But it would be even nicer if I just get one of these jobs...but they are with the government and it will probably be at least another few months before I hear back...
Either way, I think I will be happy. In the mean time it looks like I will just be taking Business and Chinese classes and volunteer at the library's literacy program (I have been assigned to help this Chinese guy learn English. I'll be starting there in a couple weeks, after I complete orientation). I've also been reading a lot about Chinese politics and history.
God I hope I hear back soon!
Oh, and today I was going to hang out with Braxton, but then he sent me a message that he's sick. Hopefully nothing too serious. I was looking forward to hanging out and telling him stories about my time in China. Oh well, I'm sure we'll hang out later on sometime.
