Hey there, blog. It’s been a while.
I’ve neglected you because, unfortunately, trying to finish my undergraduate degree was rather trying. Good news, though! That’s over with. I’m now free — free to write, free to travel, free to do whatever I darn well please, as long as money allows.
Although I was busy with school, I made time to travel. I spent eight days in Spain this semester, and five camping in New Mexico’s high desert. I’ve got plenty of posts on Chaco Canyon, Carlsbad, and southern Spain lined up.
More exciting and more to the point: I’m moving to Taiwan! I’ve been awarded the Huayu Enrichment Scholarship, which pays for room, board, and tuition at an intensive Taiwanese Mandarin program. The scholarship kicks in this December (2017) and runs until summer of 2018. This fall I hope to get a TEFL certificate, probably in Thailand, so I can be more employable as an English teacher. Other exciting (but still highly tentative) plans are in the works.
So many projects and adventures are in the pipeline right now, and I can’t wait to share them all with you!
We're driving home! Yesterday we stopped at the Parthenon in Nashville to spend the evening catching up with a friend. Today is day 3 out of 5 and we're en route to Ohio! We're heading to Lily Dale tomorrow for some Spiritualist sightseeing, then home to NH. . . . . | #nashville #roadtrip #parthenon |
