Let’s get it started in here!

16 Mar

I’m alive. I’m teaching again. And I’m ready to get it started up here in this joint.

I’m volunteering at the local preschool.  In return, I am able to use one of their rooms for teaching private classes. 
The locals are so excited!  I’ve been able to find a price they can afford and I can buy food with! WIN WIN!!

I also begin teaching the mayor and his staff next week. I can’t even create enough classes to accommodate everyone asking.  It’s actually pretty awesome how all this is coming together.

Slowly, all these little parts of my life are starting to show themselves for the blessings in disguise they are.

My short time in Turkey really was helpful to the plans I am making for my life here.  The trials and the lessons, the reminders, and the work of my time in Taiwan…. Totally necessary for what I’m embarking on here.
My training in Prague, my degrees, all of these plus are so necessary to even dream what I’m working on.

But, I am doing it.

Once again I’m reminded that sometimes the big wonderful things the universe helps you get come only with trial, to see how bad you want it I think.

Two weeks ago, my computer, external hard drive, and phone were all stolen from my room.  The thief broke in the bathroom window, jumped down, grabbed my stuff, then nicely locked the door behind him afterward.

So I’m hand making everything.
Stop is not in my vocabulary when I feel like I’m on the right path.

I’ve been able to get legal for the
next week. Now to come up with the next step in this visa fun.  Not sure how but, still working on it.

I’ve been meeting more and more wonderful people here.  The more I talk about my plans here, the more I hear how needed, wanted, and ready the people are. I’m so wonderfully supported by the expats and locals alike in this venture.

There are many many things that need to get in place still, but the ground work is beginning, and that makes me really really happy!
Until next time! Peace and love everyone!

    Bad things happens, but I am sure you are not only going to get everything back, but also better things, better experiences and better rewards!
