Dates are closing in...

Day 296: The rations have run low, and I have begun to suspect that my toe is conspiring against me with the nearby rock - he never did like me...

Insanity aside... no further contact from the placement office. The closer it gets to the cut-off dates the more paranoid I am becoming. This is not improved by the placement office appearing to be in the middle of moving... I have no problem waiting, as long as I know its a sure thing. This issue becomes waiting for answers. If I can't be placed for my original nomination that's fine - that means I can get my TEFL certification, it means additional teaching experience so my application is stronger, it means I can spend my money on another tattoo (okay the last one isn't that important...). But I'd like to just know if that is the case. But its all part of the process. I'm going to be spending 2 years in a country isolated, and I can't expect answers to always be in front of me - so I guess this is good practice.

But I deeply hope for them anyway. Dear placement, I love you very much and understand that you are working very hard, and hope you will send me some good news soon. And despite what the numerous E-mails I send might suggest and this blog I am not crazy and I do not bite. Please say hello! Love Lisa.

Ugghhhh! I'm right there with you! I was nominated for Health Degreed SSA in January and I've heard mum from the placement office thus far. Did I mention that my place to live is up in December? I had hoped to get some kind of answer out of placement this week if leaving in January was still a possibility but I don't think that's going to happen. Makes me sad to read in your previous post that the cutoff for South Africa is tomorrow because I really hoped I was going there. C'est la vie. Hope you get your answers soon!
