Jeff McDonald M.A.

By approximately 10:58 AM (mabye even a couple hours before) on June 27, 2006 the University of Kansas’s Registrar’s office updated the computer records to reflect that I have officially earned a Master’s Degree in Religious Studies! While I am very happy about this, it looks like I have to wait till around July 10th to be recognized for my Graduate Certificate in Conflict and Peace Studies.

South Korea???

Well, I have cut my hair. I dressed up nice. Worked on a real nice resume and finally sent it out all over. I did not get a lot of hits to be honest. Not a lot at all for the jobs in America. But with time winding down for my lease for my apartment in Lawrence and a car that is about ready to go bye bye, I need something now so I have looked more and more into teaching English in Asia. In my search I have what seems to be a nice job, paying enough money to get by on and a decent place to live in while I am in the greater Seoul area in South Korea. Things are not finalized yet and their is still quite a bit of time between now and when I am suppose to start work but I have accepted a job offer and am now working on getting my visa for South Korea. So, we will see where it all goes and look for a new and exciting blog to be started describing all my adventures in Asia.

One nice thing about going to Korea is that my girlfriend is from the Seoul area and so we shall still be able to see each other. The problem is that she lives in America and does not go back very often but when she does we will be able to see each other.

Also, Sorry I have not been writing in here too much. I had been terribly busy with school and then with looking for a job and visiting all my family I had not seen in so long. Anyway, I always say there will be more coming soon but I really think there will be.

superpeace and lightful love
