A friend of mine at work and I were talking, and I mentioned that I was moving to Spain in a short while. He noted that a friend of his used to live in Spain, and he offered to share my number and contact information with her so we could talk.

Surprisingly, she worked at the school where I am interested in meeting the administrators in a few months. Although I plan on meeting with her and picking her brains in the near future so I can gain a deeper understanding of what I am getting into, she and I had a lovely conversation, and we discussed some of the experiences that led her to teach overseas.

I am absolutely blown away by the fact that someone used to do exactly what I want to be doing in the near future lives in my immediate area. What are the odds of that? Pretty awesome, I think!
