So I just realized I didn't post here that I passed the interview stage. Surprise! I passed!
I just got back from the UPS store where I finally let go of the documents I have been collecting over the past few months. I feel like I just sent a small child of mine off to school for the first time, or waved Bon Voyage to a little ship I lovingly built as it set sail into the big blue on its maiden voyage.
Well, it is now out of my hands and I can only hope I checked off everything just right like I was supposed to. It's a strange feeling because the ball is finally fully in EPIK's court. Now it is time to focus on my TEFL course, finishing out my internship year, and preparing for the many adventures my summer will hold.
My old roommate's roommate told me something very wise yesterday: all things in life are adventures. Some are messes that we get ourselves into and others are spectacular opportunities for growth. As long as we look at all of them as adventures, we can live a fulfilling life no matter the actual circumstances.
I think that's a good way to begin the next chapter - the next adventure - of my life.
