I"m just waiting to see where the winds may blow....I had leaned a little more towards forgetting about the overseas job, and then I got all romantic minded about the travel, new people, places to see etc... yadda yadda... and then I was at the home and garden show and started thinking bout my yard this summer and the double pane windows I want to get on the front of my house, and the bathroom I need to update and other home improvement things and was leaning more towards just staying here. on the other hand I spoke with my Austin buddy who was saying, man, DO IT! what EXPERIENCE!! ha
on the other hand, all the dark side of DUbai things I've been reading have me a lot of second thoughts of teaching in a country that could let people live in such poor state and also considering the country is pretty much a dictatorship... alas.
Austin buddy is doing well since the break up. learning to be dependent upon himself and staying accountable in his recovery at meetings, living life day to day etc...
A new dynamic of our relationship is his grasp upon his belief in God and his new zeal for his Christianity, so that's all very interesting to me. I plan to visit him during spring break for the SXSW music festival down there that weekend.
I am off to a good start to the week. I'm hoping to make myself do the drive down to Norman sometime this week and talk to someone in the grad school program about my options. I am also looking forward to tomorrow night's class and getting to know the students. hope everyone got off to a good start to the week. :)
