The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

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.
