Isn't that always the way? I am in the midst of negotiating to do the TESOL course, and go to Vietnam some time during the year - and another opportunity arises. I've been asked to apply for another position.
And I've had some more friends who learned of my house sitting offer me other opportunities.
Life is never dull - never was, but it is getting a bit overwhelming right now. We'll have to wait and see what happens, and I won't count my chickens before they hatch.
