Wow - i totally didn't blog in 5 months ...

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

Woah! and Wow! Very cool. What made you decide to do this? Traveling is awesome. We will get back around the same time and we can swap stories.
