Quick update

Well I’m sure you can guess but I’d like to say it anyway. I accepted the offer from Meddeas and I’m going to Spain in September! I got started on visa application paperwork and I made an appointment at the consulate. I am extremely excited but I haven’t told anyone except my 3 closest friends. I feel like if too many people close to me know then they’ll jinx it somehow. So I’ll wait until I get the visa to make an announcement. But for now I’m secretly very excited and looking for flight discounts if anyone knows of any. *hint hint*

For now though, Jax and I are at it again. We left Florida on Friday and drove north. We are in Chicago and heading to Minnesota later today. We’re heading to Montana this weekend to visit a friend and have some snowy adventures and I’m so nervous for the drive! I know states with snow and ice are pretty good about clearing that stuff and I have a 4wd Subaru. But mostly I’m scared of the other drivers and them doing something that will cause a pile up or something like the Subaru sliding backwards down a mountain pass. I’m gonna be brave and do this because I’ve always wanted to but also it is good to concur fears. No matter how small and trivial they may seem. As usual, I haven’t been the best at taking pictures but here’s a snippet of where we’ve been so far. Instagram is the best place to see updates, so feel free to follow us there!

  1. Hi I am interested in applying for the MEDDAS program for Sept 2019 can you give any advice on what you said in the application? And what should I put on the CV? I really am interested!


    • Hi Phebe,
      To be honest, I don’t remember what was on my application. I filled it out in January or early February and so don’t really recall what I wrote. I’m sure I was honest though. I graduated college and that’s the most important thing. But I also have a TEFL certificate and experience working with children. I’ve always wanted to live in Spain to immerse myself in the culture and so that was something I stressed on all my langauge assistant applications. I think as long as you’ve graduated university and have an interest in the language and culture you’ll be fine. Good luck! And if you have any other questions feel free to ask.
