where I lay my head may not be my home, but I will last on my own

It's October 1st and I don't have a job.

Dr. J is sending her reference Friday, and I don't know what happened to Prof. B's. With my luck it probably got lost in the mail. I'll give it a few more days before I contact her about it.

I'm just about ready to just give up on South Korea and teaching English in general. I've been feeling incredibly bitter about the whole process and, indirectly, the country as a whole. I don't know. It's stupid. But. That's how I feel.

I'm still going to do this stupid EPIK application though. I've gone to the trouble of getting the recommendations, so it's the least I could do. I may also actually finish applying to the Peace Corps as well.

I'm thinking about finding a job around here and going back to school next semester. The more I learn about Geology the more interested I get. Best of all: it leads to a real career. Several well-paid careers, really. Who knows, maybe my Russian will help me find a job with an oil company in Russia.

October 1st is my sixth month running anniversary! Woohoo! In September I ran 73.5 miles at an average pace of 9:21. August was 80.3 miles/9:48 pace. Not quite what I was aiming for (damn you, foot!), but definitely respectable.
