Well here it is, my first blog post! I started this blog to share my thoughts and experiences of my life journey. Right now I work as an engineer. While I’ve been making good money, and gaining experience, I’m wasn’t completely happy. About a month ago, my boss gave this speech at work about all the work that we would be getting soon. He said we should be very excited, but if there was something any of us specifically wanted to do, even if it wasn’t on the program we’re working on, we shouldn’t be afraid to talk to him about it. I had already been listening to podcasts about living the life you want, and I started thinking about what I really wanted to do. Travel. That’s what I wanted to do. So I started to think about how I could do that and I remembered this site I had come across for AuPairs and families looking for them. I looked through the website some, decided that was what I would do, and made me a profile!
So that is what I am working towards now. I have been talking with a couple families and am hoping to get something set up so I can leave in January/February. I’m working on figuring out how to sell all the things I have now, and budgeting out my life for a significant pay reduction. I’m terrified, but so very excited! I’ve never done anything so completely different before, and I am ready and excited to test my boundaries, get to know a new family and culture, learn a new language, and have new adventures.
