A few examples of what I get to do at my new job 😀

And here’s an FAQ on teaching in Korea :)–check out the links on the left side panel

Remainder of my To-Do-List-of-Epic-Proportions

*Make copies of all important documents (birth certificate, visa, credit cards..etc)
*Transfer music from desktop to laptop
*IRS form–Don’t tax me I’m leaving the country-form

Still looks like a big list, but not nearly as bad as it was before.  Oh, and last day of work is in less than 6 days!  WOW!  That feels weird.  It’ll be nice though to get those 40+ hours back in my schedule.  I’m sure it’ll help out my sanity in getting some more of this list knocked out.

My family is also holding a Going Away party for me on Sunday (day after my last day of work) 🙂 awww! 😀

Currently I’m in the middle of moving all my files from my PC to my new laptop…It’s a really lengthy process..

the original list…
