Soooo, I had my phone interview with Footprints today and all went well. I was accepted. *yeah!* The next step is to turn in two letters of reference (I already filled out the application) which will eventually be forwarded to SMOE.

I also found out today that I have to get my dog USDA veternarian certified before I can take him to Korea and it has to happen no more than 10 days before departure! At this point, I still don't know if I'll be in Nashville or back in Virginia at that time but finding out is definitely on my to-do list.

One more thing out of the way, one more thing added to the list...

Congratulations, and good luck with your move to Korea. I lived and taught there for six years and they were the most defining years of my life. Keep an open heart and mind and I'm sure the experience will be a rewarding one. All the best!

Why am I here??? said...

Wow good start with the Korean studies!!!! I'm very impressed that you have made the effort to learn the alphabet before you come. I would say most people don't even learn it while they are here.

I hope your application process goes smoothly.

See you in Korea!!!

I randomly saw your blog after looking through another blog (

I'm planning on coming in August as well, and I'm also planning on bringing my dog. :)

Your blog is really interesting. Good luck with SMOE!
