I had an interview today with a private English (well, trilingual) academy. I went there thinking that there was no way they would hire me because of the fact that I'm not a citizen of a member country of the European Union (meaning it's harder to hire me legally). Because of this mindset, I sort of went with a "f it" mentality and the guy totally loved it. I bull****ted his pants off and he was laughing the whole time and he asked me all kinds of questions about my personal life. I straight up told him that if he was looking for some kind of certificate that says I can teach English then he was looking at the wrong guy. I let him know that I have some experience teaching kids in Spain and in the USA, so I've learned some valuable things about teaching. I told him if he was looking for a smart, capable person who likes being around kids and has lots of energy, then he found the right guy. I'm pretty sure he ate it all up (I mean that stuff is true, but most people aren't going to talk like that) and he told me that he liked me and he's going to call me for a second interview. I've always thought that the best way to do an interview was to go in not giving a ****.
I guess karma got me for getting a chuckle out of the Dustin Penner "Pancakegate" incident.
Was drinking coffee this morning and all the sudden I violently sneezed and now the top half of my back is completely ****ed up and sore as hell. I guess the fact that I felt my back do who knows what when I sneezed doesn't help.
Money absolutely can buy you happiness. It affords you opportunities you would never have had to actually go out and pursue your own happiness as opposed to the "default happiness" of family/friends. Money has no bearing on whether or not you have a loving family or if you're personable enough to make friends.
What I'm trying to say is this; Give me money, and I'll find happiness.
