Not sure if I should consider this “done” since I’m in the process of doing this (and won’t be leaving any time soon…I think.)

...which is good to know, especially since I was concerned it might not be a place for me. But I still have hope it may happen. Soon. Maybe? :)
I think I might need a change though. I think I’m going to start networking with people to get a feel of possible living situations and the job market.
...like most areas of the country, although the Post said that DC had been less vulnerable and actually posted 6 straight years of job creation. :/ I still want to go though.
I want to go, but the economy isn’t so great. I already have a friend out there who has a Master’s degree (and she has some work experience under her belt) and she’s still looking for full-time work…
I’m starting to ask friends who live there what they’d suggest in order to prepare for moving, joining blogs/groups that are dedicated to people who live in the area, looking at their public transportation, etc. Unlike moving off to college, I want to be at least somewhat familiar with the place.
This looks like more and more of a possibility. Although I haven’t gone abroad, if I want to get into political science-y type things, this is the place to go.
...I was told when I interviewed for a job that if I was really interested in international relations, I would be in NY or DC. It was ironic considering that my interviewers were saying this to me as we sat in an office in San Francisco. I didn’t ask why each of them were out there, although I should have. Needless to say I didn’t get the job.
A friend of mine is currently going to school out there, and she has a job as a pilates teacher. Apparently her search for a paid internship is not too fruitful. Although I don’t want to get involved with politics per se, I don’t know if I can really compete.
However, for now I want to teach English in Japan. I’ve been told thisi means putting my career on hold, but I’m okay with that. If I get started in my career, I think I’ll reget not going, even if only for a little while. I suppose we’ll see.
