Chicken Soup for the Seoul

to teach or not to teach

I am officially applying for a job teaching English in Korea. I don't know if it's 100% what I want to do, but it somehow feels right.
I've had conversations about teaching abroad with about 10 different people over the last year, and I keep ignoring it. I don't know what God actually wants me to do, but I can't ignore this. 
There's all this stuff I have to do if I want to teach abroad. I have to start with an FBI Criminal Background check, which I then have to get certified by the Department of State. It's something called an Apostille, that I don't really understand.
I also have to get an Apostille for my university diploma, which means I have to find the darn thing or pay $10 to get a new one. It's been in a folder since I got it, and I don't remember if I even brought it with me when I moved to Los Angeles.
Once I have those two things, I have to apply for the work visa, so I can actually work in Korea.
At the same time as all of this is going on, I plan on getting my TEFL certification so I can get paid more once I get there.
And then there's the interview process. I've sent in my resume and application. Now I wait a few days, maybe a week or two, and I'll be interviewed via Skype.  I should know the results of the interview within a week, and then I have to actually complete the paperwork and submit all the hardcopies. 
And in the meantime, I have to figure out if this is something I actually want to do. I'll be praying about it a lot, but I honestly just don't know yet.
