I’m still trying to figure out how to recount the past year, I’m taking today and tomorrow to do some planning. Then I will start writing some more posts. My goal is to have a new post up by the end up of the week. I’m putting my goals out there because if its in writing, it helps make it more attainable.
In other news, I got another job to help ensure I’ll have enough money for the first few months. It was such a blessing because I had lots of trouble finding jobs. It all worked out because I was honest about my plans for the Fulbright. The whole experience reminded me the importance of honesty.
So, now I need to start outlining my plans! Ready, set, go!
Almost a year ago, I began the application process for the prestigious Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (for future reference, I will abbreviatie this to ETA). I knew I wanted to do the Fulbright since my sophomore year of College. However, I was doubtful about the likelihood I would actually be accepted into the program. Fast forward to March, I receive a life changing email that I’ve been accepted to the program. For this post, I want to briefly explain why I’ve created the blog. In the next 6 weeks or so, I want to reflect on the various important moments that have marked this incredible journey plus talk about the preparations for the journey. Once I’m in Germany, I will keep this updated with the various happenings in my life and reflections about experiences.
As part of this post, I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported me on this journey. I wouldn’t have been able to do without the support. It would take me hours to thank each individual person so I wanted to publicly thank everyone. However, there were two people that were integral parts of helping me with the application process: Caroline Morris and Keri Swanson. They both spent hours helping me edit my essays as well as helping me with word choice on the application.
For now, this will work as my first post. Please look back frequently for updates.
Here’s a link for a press release issued by St. Edward’s University.
P.S. Please bare with me. I will be editing and formatting the blog over the next couple of weeks. I’m not exactly happy with it currently. Thanks!
