Fenrir, congrats on the graduation! Damn, was I relieved when I finished.
Good: About two weeks ago, I decided I can't continue doing what I've been doing, so I renewed my passport to go teach English somewhere. The only teaching I had was a day a week for about two years, but it was experience and the kids didn't blow anything up. I have a university degree, so I should be able to find something in Korea or Japan, because I need to make enough to pay my half of the rent here in the US. I'd rather go somewhere in Europe, but I'm not sure if I have the ability to pull off teaching there. I was going to go through a TEFL course to make me a little better at teaching, but there is no way I can afford that now, due to the bad thing below:
Bad: They've been piling too many things on me at work for too many years. I knew something would break sooner or later. Something broke and my boss is putting all the blame on me. Technically, it was my fault since everyone else knew even less than I did. However, I relied on a consultant that said everything was taken care of and didn't have the chance to put him through a lie detector and/or fully understand what exactly I was to do and believed them when they said, "No, everything is done, you don't have to do anything." I asked my boss if I still would have a job on Monday (tomorrow is a local holiday) and was asked "What do you think?" Great. Just great. After ten years of working my butt off, trying my damndest to get things done and being 95% successful, the 5% I couldn't figure out just bent me over without the aid of any Vaseline. Even if he's playing mind games and doesn't fire me (he's done this to others for months before he gets around to having someone else fire them), I don't think I can go back.
