About

I have always found inspiration in the words of Maya Angelou.

“If you don’t like a thing, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.”

I was sitting in the 3rd floor UW Green Bay campus library in my pjs one  evening. I had just opened up an email from a former Spanish Professor with an opportunity to teach English in Spain. This was back in Fall 2010. As I sat wearing a miserable pair of sweatpants and torn ratty T-shirt I reflected on what I had done earlier that day. I went to work washing cars, putting up with being cold and wet, and then in the evening I had  gone to waitress, bringing drinks and clearing plates. This is what I had done the day before. and this was my plan for the next day, and the day after that. 

At that particular moment in time I hated my home town and what I was doing and where I was going. 

It was decided like that. I would move to Spain. Teach English. See what would happen, because sometimes the unknown is better than what already is. 

This is a collection on my experiences, thoughts, expressions and accounts of this time I am now spending in Spain. I don’t know what is going to happen, but your welcome to join me find out.

The journey is only beginning.  Hopefully it never ends.

Jessica.

  2. Check out Corcovado in the South if you have time. You will see scarlet macaws everywhere and possibly a puma near a camp site I was at..Chirripo is awesome and in the north Bijagua is also amazing.. If you get fed up of rice and beans every day then Puerto viejo is great for the caribbean influence.What do you think of San Jose? (!) I was ALWAYS lost there!!
