I’m in Ogden, Utah house sitting for my cousin and her boyfriend as they take an RV trip to the Southwest. It’s nice to be on my own for a little while. Don’t get me wrong, it has been really nice staying with people that I know and love, but there is always a little bit of guilt that goes along with it, no matter how welcoming and loving people are.
In any event, this is a nice deal. I feed about ten horses, take care of some chickens, water the garden, and have the use of a truck, the house, and everything that comes with it. So for the next week or so, I am a cowboy caretaker. Not bad.
I’ve been working on getting a job teaching English in Indonesia. With any luck, that will come through. The two interviews went very well, now I can only hope that the job happens. Indonesia will be nice on a couple of levels. 1) I love the country and the people 2) It’s a Muslim country and 3) It’s a country that Hanane can actually travel to without a visa. The money isn’t great, but that isn’t what is most important right now.
I was able to defer my student loans until January, I still have some money saved up from the debacle of working for my dad, and I just feel like this is the right move. So with any luck, I will take my flights back from Quebec in September to Dublin, then go to Brussels and hang out for a few days, then I will go back to Morocco, then a short flight to Turkey for a few days, and finally a flight to Indonesia where I will need to take a trip to Singapore to get my working visa, and then I get to (hopefully) teach kids.
I think life is going to work out for this Vagobond. Don’t you?
