I'll admit: this all kinda started with a #boy. He made me seriously start thinking about how I could live and work anywhere because he is persuing a career where he might live and work anywhere.
I'm already an #expat and I'd already dreamt of working abroad. I love the States, but I'm all about #dislyfe. Been one for most of what I'd consider my adult life. However, #esl is one of those professions with little job security and lots of personal/financial investment. In fact, I began teaching as a means to an end; my dream is to be a #foreignserviceofficer. But like lots of people with few resources and big dreams, I got stuck.
I remember back at #unc #chapelhill as an #undergrad I discovered #websitedevelopment. It was a hobby. The WWW was wild and free. #Napster was our bread and butter and #Netscape was the bomb. 😂 I remember the thrill of learning frames and inline CSS... But then I stopped. I "grew up" and out of #webdev.
Fast forward to now. I'm not broke but I'm not free. I got brains but nowhere to use them. It's high time to change course. And that's what I'm doing.
