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.
