Korea

Decision-making is killing me. I've told the recruiter in Seoul that I'll sign the contract today to go teach there from the 19th June for 12 months. But is this the right thing?
Not having someone to housesit for 2 months is stressing me out. And I need someone to look after my car. And will I have enough money? And 12 months! One whole year of my life in a place like Korea? What am I thinking?

I don't know

these should not stop you

And will I have enough money?
Depends if you spend more than you earn

And 12 months! One whole year of my life in a place like Korea?

What am I thinking?

I probably can't be of much help because all my friends seem to agree that making decisions is my greatest weakness. I thought about getting into meditation so I can cope with this better, but I couldn't decide which meditation school to go to. If you've done the research into ESL providers, and you've chosen 'People Recruit' for sound reasons, then trust yourself. I was a weeping wreck after I handed in my preference form to the Exchange Unit with Lithuania as my top preference. I thought I was craaazeee. It was that moment, after I'd actually finalised my decision, that I felt the most nervous about it. Everything was uphill from there. Maybe its the same with you now? And everything else with house and car will sort itself out. Meanwhile, my friend knows somebody who's really nice from Canada teaching just outside Seoul at the moment (until the end of the year). I'm in the process of getting her details for you. Oh, and by the way, why are you going to Korea to teach English for a year?
