The First Draft

Several days ago I wrote the first draft of my personal essay for the EPIK application.

It's really hard to put into words all of the reasons I want to go to Korea to teach.  I just hope I don't sound too ridiculous and/or cheesy.  I'm really good at sounding cheesy because I'm sort of a huge idealist.  The next part of the application asks for a lesson plan.  Can I mention how weird it is to be planning an English lesson and not science?  The same basic principles apply, but it fells kind of weird to write a lesson for something that I speak naturally.  I wonder if all ELL/ESL instructors feel this way at some point?

It's also a new year (Happy New Year!)!  I can tell in my bones that it is now January of 2013.  I wonder if this will be the year I go to Korea?  I hope so!
