I’ve been thinking…I’ve been thinking…

Hello there! Sitting at the edge of my bed and decided to post something. As the title says, “I’ve been thinking…I’ve been thing…” not what you probably think if you’re a Beyoncé fan. I’ve been seriously thinking about seeking employment elsewhere…elsewhere meaning…leaving the country. Yup! I’ve been looking for a job for over a year and as time goes by, bills are mounting and i’m not getting interviews. I’m looking for more in my life. I’m looking for more than just a new and better paying job…I’m looking for a new experience overall. For the past three years my brother has been in my ear about teaching English abroad. I don’t know anything about teaching, but at this point what do I have to lose. Living in a whole other country will open my eyes to so many things plus I’ll get a chance to travel and see the world. I’ve been researching, talking to friends who are currently living overseas, and praying. Welp, I’ve made my decision and I’m gonna do it. I’m going to start my TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) certification on Friday. It will be an online course and I’m nervous and excited. I don’t know where I’ll end up. I could be in South Korea, Japan, Costa Rica, UAE or my dream location…Italy next year. It’s time for something new. If you want changes in your life, then you gotta make moves.

English teachers are needed in a lot of places. In Dubai, they pay very well. Not sure about Italy, but keep me posted on your moves. It’s a beautiful thing to live in another culture.

      Alesia! Ya gots to know Italy was my first choice!! LOL Seriously though, I have to be smart about where I wanna reside. I know Dubai, Japan, and South Korea pay very well. Dubai actually pays the better of the 3 plus they cover housing, insurance, etc. Only thing is even though I have degrees which they favor, Dubai prefers “onsite” TEFL certification. I’m getting my certification online because it’s what I can afford. I’m gonna still apply to teaching positions in Dubai and Abu Dhabi anyway. You just never know how God will move.
      Alesia how long have you been living in Italy now?
