The countdown continues...

Well, well, well. It's down to the nitty-gritty. I have 2 more full days before boarding a flight across the world! Reality has set in, and I'm not nervous...just not imagining how I can stay on a flight for 12 hours at one time! LMBO! Guess I'll see pretty soon huh?

Oh, and not to mention the horrific experience my sister and niece just had to endure. They left ATL on Saturday morning at 9:45 a.m. They get all the way to Detroit--get on a flight to go the rest of the way to Korea--instead, 2 hours into the last leg, they get turned around back to Detroit! With no explanation!! Then, they are informed that the crew has been on board too long, so they have to be rerouted back to ATL! Whoa!!! Then once they get to ATL, they are informed that the flight to take them directly to Korea has been canceled. They are put up in a room for the night, and have to get a straight flight to S. Korea the next day...waaaay too much going on! I pray for an easier travel itinerary, and you know I must pray against any hindrances, like Pastor and First Lady do when we go on a trip! LOL.

Anyway, I'm at peace with my life. I just got off the phone with a person who has forever changed my thought process. I am going to do what I should have done a LONG time ago. Someone once said, until a plan/vision is written down, it's just a thought. So, I am going to stop avoiding the issue, and write my plan down for financial freedom--right now! It looks great in my head, but I know the Bible teaches me to write the vision and make it plain--then it shall speak, and not lie. I don't get the promise without fulfilling the prerequisite (courtesy of The Embassy Church).

I'll post again Thursday morning while waiting for my flight...probably even do a video (through Manna Video, Inc.). Love you all and be blessed!!

Not-so-patiently awaiting my departure!

Well ladies and gents, it's going down! My recruiter sent me my flight details today. I'll be leaving the States (♪God Bless the USA♪) on Thursday August 26th at 5:30 am. Yes, you read that right, it's AM! OMG, what in the world?!? LOL. At any rate, I'll fly over to Charlotte (why? IDK) and then from Charlotte, NC I fly to Los Angeles. I sit in LA for about 3 hours (probably just enough time to get through baggage and customs), then take Asiana Airways to Seoul, S. Korea. I sleep (assumption) for the next 12 hours and 30 mins, and arrive in Seoul at 6:10 pm. Someone will be there holding a sign with my name on it...they'll help me to the bus (all must be done by 7:20, when the last express bus to Asan departs the airport) and from the bus, someone (???) will pick me up! They actually gave me the name of the teacher who will pick me up, but...can't remember it right now.

Obviously, I'm excited. Just wanted to update you as I promised!! Be praying--I know you will be. Pooped-I'm going to bed!

Uber Excited!!

Well folks, it is finally official! I am on my way to South Korea in a few days. I spoke with my recruiter, and she says the hagwon (private academy) wants me to leave on Thursday 8/26/2010. I haven't received my actual flight confirmation via email though.

Tab and Tionne rode with me to pick up my passport today. It's a little less surreal now that I have visa in hand! Gotta start making preparations now...repacking, mostly. I thought I'd try and carry another piece of luggage until Tab (my sister) informed me that it will cost me roughly $130 to take an extra bag!! Where they do that at?!? (shout-out to Kesha, my friend from The Embassy) :-)

So, it looks like I'll be leaving even more items at my mom's. I just can't afford to be paying that much extra! I mean, really?!?

So, I'm excited, but more relaxed now. I'll try to keep you all informed weekly of what's going on through words, videos, or pictures. It'll probably be even more frequently until the honeymoon period wears off. LOL...I hear that'll be around the 90 day mark...but we'll see.

The GREAT news is, that my sister and my niece are stationed in South Korea at Camp Humphreys. So, we'll get to see each other often. Did I say I'm excited??

Until next time, Na-jung-e bwae-yo! - Google're gonna learn Korean with me! Love ya!!
