Since my last post I was accepted to the China internship and in recent weeks I decided not to go!!! Yip, true story!
In all the excitement I booked the internship before I had started the dissertation process for my masters. Long story short, I left myself will no time at all to complete the research and write it up before taking off to China! So I made the decision to pull out of the internship and focus on my masters. I got a loan to pay for the internship so I'm kinda pissed that I'm not entitled to the refund. In fairness, it's in the T&C's so it's not like I can argue with it. I figure it's a lot cheaper than doing another masters if I fail!!!
Anyhooodles! I still have plans which I'm super excited about! I'm in the process of applying for EPIK through ESLstarter for Feb intake! I love everything about South Korea (I haven't actually been there yet :P) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get through the interview! Is anyone else applying for EPIK? I plan on travelling around SE Asia with a friend for a month or so beforehand. I'm flying out to Bangkok to meet her at the end of Dec/start of Jan and we're going to start from there and then it's CNY with my friend and her family in Hubei, China. Eeeeep!!
