So here's the big thing that's going on in my life: (figured i'd start with that!)
I'm going to Russia for a month! I'm going to be teaching English and living with a host family in a city called Izhevsk - i can't wait! :-D
The program is through a company called Svezhy Veter and basically sets you up to teach English and maybe another subject at a local school. I had kinda wanted to work with small businesses to really use my MBA, but I couldn't really find anything. In the end, i ended up having an e-mail conversation with someone who had done the SV program and had nothing but good things to say about it!
My boss is being super cool and letting me have a month of personal leave, so basically i don't get paid, but i don't have to start looking for a new job, either :-D
OK, well, that's about all that i have time for now. Dear Diary, sorry i've been ignoring you. I'll call soon, i promise ... ...
NEways, wish me luck! I'll try to post pics etc while i'm there ... starting November 14th! AGH!! :-D
