I returned from Korea in Dec, 2011, where I'd been teaching English to Elementary school students for the past two years. Before I went there, I thought I didn't like children. I've since decided that I don't like American children. (Longstanding thesis, yet to be disproven: children meet most clinical criteria for sociopathology. We just forgive them because they're cute.) But, less cynically, I loved my job, I loved my kids, and I think teaching is fun.
I studied philosophy (20th century Continental if you care.) I like reading. I also like fun things. I consider conversation and argument fun things. Drinking too. Those last three things work particularly well together, except when they don't.
