It's Time.

Wednesday, September 04, 2019

I've started my 3rd year in Qatar, and I've decided that it will be my last.

I began and ended the summer homesick for metro Atlanta. All in all, it's been the most stable home I've had in my life; it's my chosen home.

And even though I still miss the city (more important, I miss my family), I don't think I'm quite ready to return to the states.

I will not, however, be joining another school for 2020-2021.

I have enjoyed my time in Doha and I have amazing students at my school.

But I have long toyed with the idea of taking a year off for introspection.

Be clear, this isn't one of those quit your job and travel the world type jaunts (no shade, just not for me).

I'm going to base myself in one place for one year, and just do whatever I want. Being employed since the age of 15 has afforded me the ability to do this; granted, it'll be in an affordable, budget- friendly country. So, definitely not the USA.

I have narrowed my decision down to 2 countries that I've been to, and loved immensely. Both are super affordable, have lively environments and plenty of people who look like me 😀

So I'm putting it out there, in the atmosphere and on the blogosphere. Now I'm officially holding myself accountable to seeing it through.

Who knows what will come of it, but it has given me unspeakable peace and a renewed joy!

I have something to look forward to, I am taking an adult gap year!

Watch this space 😉 things are about to get interesting.
