Inspirational speakers always say the today is the first day of the rest of your life. Never before has that sentiment rang more true for me than today. Today, I was accepted into the Masters in TESOL program at Oklahoma City University.
Why get a Masters, you ask? There are many people that go over to teach English in a foreign country with a bachelors degree and a dream and yes, I could do that as well. But a masters for me means more money, more knowledge, and the endpoint of a personal goal that I have set for myself since I was a teenager.
I’m primarily writing this blog to document my trials and impressions of completing my Master of Arts in TESOL, applying for positions, getting a VISA, moving to a foreign country, and hopefully highlighting cultural differences and similarities through food, pop culture, history and more.
Today was the day that I was officially accepted into the graduate program at Oklahoma City University.
So really, today is the first day of the rest of my life.
