Teaching English Abroad?

Being faced with the many incredible possibilities awaiting me after I graduate, I find myself a touch overwhelmed. The prospect of finding a “real job” is scary, so I’ve been trying to think about it as little as possible. However, last night, I went to an information session for a TESOL course and the more time that I spent sitting there, poring over the pamphlets they gave me, the more this idea appealed to me. I love traveling and have been looking for an easy way to get back to Europe and frolic around, completely immersed in culture…so this lined up really well! It looks like I’ll be taking the ESL teaching course after I finish exams, and we’ll see where we go from there. The countries I’m going to be looking at are probably Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Croatia (how great would that be?!), but there’s plenty of time to make decisions yet. This may be the ideal situation for me; taking a year off from all the science I’ve done to explore another country and make money, and then return to normal life and begin looking for a career. After all, I’m young and have quite a bit of time to make something of myself after I graduate…

Moving on. I just scared myself thinking about…the future…and need to take a break. Here’s a sexy car for you (well, it’s more for me):

In any case, there will be updates on this as I try to figure out exactly what is up with life.

By the way, today’s lunch is a chili-seasoned scrambled egg & roasted red pepper spread panini with cut wax beans. Just sayin’.


Why do people care about the Oscars?

As per my general modus operandi, my posts will be a series of non-sequiturs; however, I maintain this is part of my charm. I’m also just feeling particularly ADD today, so I just managed to scrape my ideas into three general subjects:

SUBJECT 1: The Lamborghini
Reasons why there is a photo of a Lambo:

1. I love cars.
2. I love sexy things.
3. This car is sexy.

With the transitive property (or some shape thereof) applied, one can deduce why this photo is here. Mostly, this photo came up on my tumblr, and I pretty much dropped my cuppa tea from excitement and wanted to share the glory. You’re welcome.

SUBJECT 2: The Oscars
Reasons why I think the Oscars are useless:

1. There are no sports being played,
2. There is no delicious food being prepared,
3. I have to sit there listening to a lot of people thanking their families for feeding/inspiring/religiousing them,
4. A movie picking up a dozen awards doesn’t influence my opinion of it

I accept any excuse to have a fun party involving delicious recipes and dressing up, but it’s fascinating how dull awards shows are.

SUBJECT 3: My Lunch is Delicious

Sauteed spinach & mushrooms with roasted chicken breast & thyme on a bed of polenta. Nom. Just sayin’.

– V out!
