So now that I don't have a full time job for the first time ever, what do I do with my time? Right now I have a few different things going on - I am taking an online class for my Masters program, I go to German class twice a week, I am doing a freelance translation project for an organization out of D.C., I am doing a little consulting work for my former job at Portico, and I am coaching cross country at Brian's school. Come October, cross country and translation will end, but I should be able to start substitute teaching at the school. Right now we are just waiting for the work permit to go through.
I am pretty busy but it's all on my own time. So I can work a couple of hours, and then go take a bike ride. I am starting to like it a lot!
- Thanks for coming to my blog. It started as a way to keep in touch with family and friends, and now has become an ongoing project. I'm an American living in Germany and trying to travel whenever I can. I write about my experiences as an expatriate (the interesting ones and the embarrassing ones), and about my travels. There are some recurring characters in this blog, particularly my husband Brian and several of our friends. The title comes from the idea that living in a foreign country means making a lot of mistakes. So the things you used to do easily you now have to try over and over again. Hopefully, like me, you can laugh at how idiotic it feels. If you have happened upon my blog, then welcome. Knowing that people are reading what I write makes me keep going. Feel free to write comments or suggestions for future posts.
