One day I just might actually rewrite my profile or delete it. At the moment I am living and working in Saudi Arabia again. Life in Bangkok was great, but the salary for teachers is quite low there.
Update: Life is moving quickly at the moment. After a few weeks in the USA visiting friends and family I took a job in Bangkok. I will be teaching English literature in a bilingual High School, starting in July.
From what I can tell, I will be living in Pathum Thani.
Update: Finished my contract in Saudi and now I am back in Charlotte, NC.
Update: I sold and gave away all of my stuff and moved to Saudi Arabia for at least the next year (as of August). I am teaching English at an Islamic university which is totally cool and a bit funny since I am not Muslim or even religious.
Update: Some day this year I am going to sell or give away all of my things and move to another country. I have done this 3 times now and it frees the soul. I suppose I want to meet a woman who wants to do the same thing at the same time. Urban, rural, international, spiritual exploration to the nth degree. That's me.
Writing about myself is fun and dangerous. How does one accurately talk about the good things without sounding egotistical?
I love to travel and have a compass in my heart that keeps pushing me further and further away. For the last 3.5 years I have lived and worked in SE Asia as an English teacher. I used to working as a financial advisor before that, but there is not much of that person left in me.
Life is about making friends, having experiences, and trying your best to make each day count.
So I dream of new destinations and past exploits. I drink coffee. I work a job I am good at but can't do forever (sales) because it will give me the ability to travel and write and live and laugh.
Sometimes I blog
Sometimes I wonder in what context I could say, "and then the Queen laid an egg."
It doesn't meant that I accept everything and everyone. But I know what things are not in my control and what things are. I also constantly test my limits trying to make this world better; one cup of coffee at a time.
A List of things in no particular order:
Band of Horses
Battlestar (new one)
Dirty Dozen Brass Band
Also if you think I'm cute. (Did I mention that I am funny?)
