Wow... It sure has been a long time. Well, after not having posted for 3 months I'm sure not too many people will be reading this! Internet access at my training site was spotty at best, but now I am blessed with dial-up!
I guess this will be a generall "all's well" sort of announcement post. So, with that said, all is well! I've successfully finished training and moved to my permanent site where I'll be teaching English for the next two years. I'm in a beautiful little town in far western Ukraine, and I think I'm going to be pretty happy here. I probably won't be able to fish whenever I want, but I am within reasonable distance of the Carpathian Mountains for weekend trips.
I'm really excited about teaching in the New Year. I'm lucky to have some very enthusiastic students, so it should be a lot of fun. I suppose my New Years resolution is to work hard and enjoy everything Ukraine has to offer!
Happy New Year!
