Archives for category: My Bucket List

Yet another change in my life happens and I feel like I’m rolling with the tides and avoiding the punches. I’ve finished my placement year and I’m now onto the next challenge.


After University it has been my dream to move abroad and experience another way of life. Delve into another culture and learn from the experience. To bring these dreams to a reality I’m hoping to teach English whilst living abroad, giving me a stepping stone when taking the big leap. This journey started today.

Today I started my new job at an English school where I will gain experience and qualifications (TEFL etc)to help support me when I move abroad. It’s very exciting however I still don’t feel like I’m moving forward for some reason.

The idea of moving abroad feels like an amazing life experience however it almost feels a bit wreckless in the sense that it’s putting my career on hold. I know this is ridiculous as living in another country will open several other doors. I guess I can’t help the fear of unknown.

I shout out to all those who have made this leap… How did you find it?
