Greetings family! Last Monday, I got awesome news! After a lot of praying, changing habits, and getting off of my high horse, I FINALLY got a job at a tv station! Years prior, I put off the idea of working at a station because I thought it was boring but after thinking about some things and coming to various conclusions, I’ve come to accept that I am not as good as I think I am in my field. I need a LOT of practice and the best way I can get it is to work at a tv station. The great thing about this I will be close to my family (it’s here in Texas, after all) and I will have another place of my own.
It’s crazy to think my 20 months in Korea trained me for this moment. In my heart, I believe had I gotten this job two years ago, I would have been fired after a short time because I wasn’t mentally prepared. All the crap I went through at my hagwon and even at English Village trained me for this and I am ready. I met my future crew mates and they are all nerds. Cool nerds! I will be working as a production assistant (basically a gofer) so I will learn the basics and go from there. I expect to stay six months to a year unless something else happens but again, who knows.
I’ve spent the last three days packing up (I have a LOT more than I expect!) and i’m still not done. My goal is to have everything in the boxes by Thursday. I’m positive I can expedite this if I just stay off of my computer and quit trying to see people. I won’t be THAT far from home. Oh and getting off of this too. :D
