I have had a few reviews in a row so I thought I would post an update on how things are going on the getting the fuck out of Shawshank front.
My truck is back and functioning properly after dropping almost $1700 on the front end being pretty much completely replaced.
Luckily I got my comp time payout from Dispatch so it didn’t really set me back but it sure didn’t move me forward either.
My buddy, Butterworth, told me about the company he is working for in North Dakota hiring for Flowback Operators, I jumped the gun and wrote the boss before I had a chance to update my CV. I am hoping that when I do get it to him, he will not dismiss it out of spite.
I do not really want to go back to North Dakota but the money there would get me overseas a LOT quicker.
The one good thing to come out of the Comp Time Payout is that I paid for the classes to get my TEFL certification. With it, I will be able to get a job in any place that does not require a degree higher than associates degree teaching English for foreign students.
So, getting this, I could start in Eastern Europe and work my way to Asia instead of the other way around. I like this because I miss Russia more than Thailand.
Though the girls may not like me as much.
But due to this, I have been working on my Russian quite a bit and have made several friends through the app called Hello Talk.
As a matter of fact, one of the friends on there is an English Teacher and I spoke to one of her classes today on skype.
I have her and another friend trying to get me on at private schools in Russia as an English teacher, apparently to work for a private school, you do not need you TEFL.
I will get my TEFL no matter what but studying for it in Russia rather than in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri sounds mighty appealing.
One friend is trying to get me on in St. Petersburg which would be like my biggest dream coming true.
The other is trying to get me on in a town about 1200km from Moscow called Oktyabrsky.
I do not know much about it yet but I will and I may write a post about it.
I have decided to enjoy life a little and start going to movies on Saturday and possibly Sunday mornings.
But after spending $12 in soda the other day at the theater… I need to figure out how to sneak shit in.
This weekend I want to go watch the new Jack Reacher and Keeping up with the Joneses.
I love Jack Reacher books so I have to watch the movies and am less worried after Tom Cruise did a good job though he didn’t have the height of Reacher.
As for the other one, it is action and has bot Gal Gadot and Isla Fisher. It could have no sound and I would want to watch it.
On the Belarus Bride thing, I sent them my list and got back this email.
We got all your info and will wait for your photos.
I will look over your spreadsheet, it will take some time.
You have $122 in your petty cash account.
We will charge you $50 for review of your spreadsheet.
Now you have $72 in your petty cash account.
Have nice weekend,
Nina and Greg
This was on 23 Sept, the last time I heard anything about this. We will see how it goes.
Gal Gadot… in lingerie… Thank God for the IDF
