I survived Denver!

So, last month I started the process to try to become a teacher in Japan. And while I admit, it did take me a few weeks to get all the way through the application (sans cover letter) I did manage it. Then, on the 26th, I got a call to schedule a phone interview. I still had no cover letter. So I had to scramble to get that done so I could do my phone interview on the 1st. Long story short, I got invited to an information session/in person interview on the 6th. Yesterday. And I had to give a demo lesson as a part of it, too! So I scrambled on Thursday and got everything ready, and drove to Ft Collins to stay with my sister on Friday. Saturday morning I woke up hella early and was a good hour early for the info session thingy. Turned out good, since it meant I actually found parking in the hotel's parking lot, unlike some of the others there. I volunteered to go first when it was time to do the demo lessons. Which, by the way, were recorded on camera to be sent to the bigwigs in Japan. And even though I had so little prep, I rocked it. I knew I rocked it before my interviewer even told me I did. I also got the first interview slot in the afternoon, since I had the farthest to drive afterward. I rocked that, too. ^______________^ Drove back home from Ft Collins today, and thank goodness there were no highway patrol on the way home. Speed limit is 80 and I know at one point (at least) I was doing 110. >.>

Everybody happy dance!

CONQUEST IS MINE!! Let's just not talk about how I'm nowhere near done with the story.


I remember a while ago I said I would start posting recipes and never did. I blame the fact that lj no longer likes internet explorer and has made the enter key totally non-functional. You can scale back the amounts of pasta used in the dishes I make if you like, I use a lot because then it lasts for more meals, since I do my cooking for work.

Imitation crab alfredoCollapse )

Chicken sausage and veggies in cheese sauceCollapse )

I think I'll just do these two for now. Next time, stir fry, chicken pot pie stew, and beef noodle soup. The beef noodle soup is not yet tested, so I can't tell you until I try it.



Since lj is being a butthead and won't let me do this properly on here, I've done a post with a recipe of my own creation to share over on my tumblr. Feel free to take it, try it, and enjoy it thoroughly. http://feihurose.tumblr.com/post/52279921750/food-things
