Why do parents think posting posed images of their young daughters all over Facebook fishing for likes is a good thing? Everyone that clicks like doesn't have good intentions. Stop feeding the perverts.

So I go by Sally's today. I go ti checkout and the lady asks me if I have a Sally's card. I pull out my wallet, find it, give it to her. She scan its and my purchases and gives me my total. I give her my credit card which she swipes and as she's handing me the receipt says "Ok, little girl." LITTLE GIRL?!! WTH?? Like I had to do a serious self control moment. Now, I know we black people get accused of making everything racial but the fact that this was a 60ish white woman made me immediately think of how some white people call grown black people call "boy" and "girl" as a way to demean them. I'm not saying she meant it that way but that's what came to mind. I'm 37 years old. I admit I do look young and depending on what I'm wearing or if someone knows me I do at times get mistaken for my early 20s. That said even if I was in my early 20s she had no business calling me a little girl. Totally unprofessional. And how many little girls come into a store shopping alone with a wallet full of credit cards. She must have seen the look on my face and started asking me how my day was going. I said "fine since I'm off work" figuring she'd get the hint that little girls don't have jobs. I left and went to a business next door. When I came out the Sallys manager was outside and I made it known I didn't appreciate what was said and it was very disrespectful. I know my mom would consider a 20 year old a kid but she would never call someone that in professional setting.

Ok so I moved to a different state to teach back in December. I did it for the experience oppurtunity and because of the tough job market in my home state. I had no family or friends whatsoever moving to the new state. Well at the very beginning of May my contract was cancelled due to certification issues that stemmed from a lack of organization on my employer's part and my naivete. Anyways, I figured it looks like its time for me to go ahead and try finding a job overseas because to go and live abroad has been a dream of mine since forever and I would have all my goals for my 20s pretty much checked off (trust me I had very few goals). Well I recieved an email back saying that EPIK, a program in South Korea, would be the most suitable choice. I have gone through the process and as of today I have unofficially/officially been accepted into the program. Right now I am in the process of gathering my visa documents and barring nothing shows up on my FBI check (my dad says nothing will) I will mail in my documents and receive my work Visa to head off to Korea.
Now just to get through these next 3 months financially is going to be a challenge. I made some aquaintances while in Michigan but as soon as I stopped working at my school I have heard from no one.That's a bummer. I also started applying for part time jobs and am recieving the worst unemployment check in history. Whew that felt good to get off of my chest.

In mexico the building was still under construction and we had to step over electrical wires to get to our door and the other was in Madrid and it was on a street where a lot of prostitutes worked. Def not in the brochure lol! I looked into teaching English abroad since I have done it here in US but was told I need my TESL certification.

I know there are a few non-native spanish speakers on the board so I hope one of you guys can help. I want to go to Barcelona and learn Spanish for 2-3 weeks to get at least basic conversational skills. Is that expecting too much to expect in a short time, and should I wait until I can put in at least a month of immersion?

I have no intention of giving up French, but if I want to move back to the West, Spanish would be a lot more helpful, even if I can only converse at a A2/B1 level.

A few years ago before a trip to Italy I spent two months doing intensive study using Berlitz. It is good and much cheaper than Rosetta Stone. I learned enough Italian to have very very basic conversations. I could order off a menu, ask directions, bargain with vendors ect. My problem was the Italians kept wanting to talk me in English or Spanish and I'm like I want to parlare italiano. I bought a Vietnamese learning system. That's rough because if you use the wrong inflection it changes the whole meaning of the word.

I went from having a job for the next year to having none because the family I am staying with can no longer afford to host me for another year. I will be 28 this year and being an au pair for another year may not be possibly, and a little inconvenient since I really want to go to uni. At the very least I can babysit part-time for a steady income that would allow me to find a cheap place, but I have 1 paycheck left for my contract, 2 months
before my visa expires, and 3 months before I can work. Going home is not an option because I will be stuck in a place I so not want, but I'm afraid that I can't make it on my own. Im afraid.
