Passions, Otherwise Known as Unhealthy Obsessions — 20 Comments

  1. Totally loved it and very much enjoyed reading about all your different passions. And hope that maybe someday you can live out your dream and have your husband follow you!! 🙂

  2. I’ve looked into the Teach America, and other abroad teaching opportunities, and usually it’s based on seniority. Places like Vietnam, Romania, and Mozambique are fairly easy to get placed in, but high interest countries like Japan, France, South Africa, Brazil, Germany usually take being placed for a few years or so in the other “not as desirable” countries. But there are many companies that offer these teaching abroad jobs, and you never know.

    I agree on the Arts (although I have to throw Social Studies in there as well).

    • Oh yeah, I know how hopeless it is, because I’ve looked into it too. I’ve had a few friends teach in Korea and China, so I thought about doing that, but I’m not as interested in teaching there because the language baffles me…I’m a romance-language girl, all the way.

      Social Studies is on my list of interests to read and watch documentaries about, so it falls under that general humanities umbrella. That was how I specialized in literature in the first place, so I could kill several birds with one stone (psychology, theater, history, philosophy, culture, politics, art – by reading literature, I could study it all). 🙂

  3. This is a great list. I really enjoyed reading it and learning more about you. I’m passionate about travel too. My husband and I have a goal to visit all 50 states as well as all the National Parks. I haven’t been to any of the NW states. I think he’s only missing Idaho and N. Dakota. We’ve been to China (to adopt our kids), but I’d love to go to Europe and on an African Safari. Is that too much to ask? Especially when you have three small mouths to feed and no money? Not at all. 🙂

  4. Once upon a time I wanted to teach English in Argentina, but the finances didn’t work out. Seems like only Korea was paying decent money- Europe was around 8 euros an hour, and south America even less. Boo.
    Look at all those pretty awards you have collected! I need to get caught up

    • Yeah I know, and Korea isn’t on my radar of places I need to visit…
      I’m kind of embarrassed about the awards. I need to hide them on another page or something, because I don’t want to remove them entirely…
