I always hate about pages. I am never good at describing myself and making it interesting. Sure, I can list facts — I am an American, female, 25 years old and recently (almost 3 years now) married. After living in Yueyang, Hunan, China for five months because my husband, John, and I accepted teaching jobs that moved us halfway around the world from our Bowling Green, Ohio home, I am returning to the States to try living on the West Coast in Portland before beginning another adventure abroad. Despite living in China for five months, my Mandarin is very, very deplorably bad. However, my Spanish skills improved, so what can I say? I improved in some language… Anyway, this blog is a space for me to sort through and share my adventures, experiences, thoughts and observations as I travel around the world, since I have very little to no intention of settling back down in the US for any extended period of time. I am young and feel called to travel — the world awaits! Especially because teaching ESL jobs exist everywhere, even in the US. (And yes, I am aware that the previous sentence is a fragment :)) So how’s that for an about me section?
