Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Originally from Texas, I've been in Shanghai for almost 4 years
now. I teach American History and Literature at an international
school. The first year, I wasn't too enthralled with this city, but
despite it's flaws, Shanghai is something of a home for me, now. I
do feel like there are benefits of living here that I'm not fully
taking advantage of, so I'd like to try to make a little more of an
effort seeking out more fulfilling experiences. I love teaching and
can't imagine doing anything else, but I've been putting everything
into my job at the expense of everything else. This year, I'm
trying to find a balance and explore interests outside of work. I'm
still deciding whether I'm going to stay in Shanghai for another
year, so I'm not looking for anything really serious, just people
to kick it with.
