The Search is Over

After I graduated with my Masters, I spent five months applying to jobs.  I had started applying a full four months before graduation.  It took over 160 applications, and ten interviews.

Today I received the wonderful, long-anticipated phone call:  I will be teaching English full time at MacArthur Middle School, in Ft Meade.  I am thoroughly excited, and feel that all my dreams are coming true.

First I got the girl (Rachel)
Then I got the experience of a lifetime (Oxford)
Then I got the job (MacArthur)
Next, will I get published.....

A great Saturday

This past Saturday, Rachel and I drove to the MD Renaissance Festival, where we met her cousins and uncle.  The day was great, especially because of all the people we spent it with.  Met my friend Sarah there, and then had dinner in DC with Rachel's best friend Heidi and her brother.  It was good to have a day of fun, and to enjoy the suddenly cool fall weather (mmm, warm cider).
