Where Are You From?
Born in Hong Kong, I immigrated to Canada at the age of 5 and grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario.
What Do You Do?
I have been a certified teacher since 2009 and taught in South Korea prior to my certification. After I graduated, I had a tough time finding work in my home province, Ontario. At the beginning of 2012, I moved up to a small, isolated Cree reserve in central Quebec and worked there as a high school science and math teacher.
In September 2017, I moved to Kitchener-Waterloo, a city an hour west of Toronto and currently work there as an Occasional Teacher. I love reading; feel free to send me recommendations for both non-fiction and fiction or add me on GoodReads as a friend. Currently I am working on certification to become a Teacher Librarian.
What’s Your Blog About?
I use this space to jot down what I’ve learned, plot my short-term and long-term goals and monitor the progress of my finances, health, career and personal life. I used to run another blog, Two Degrees of Unemployment, which had a good public following from 2009 to 2012 and is now defunct. I’ve been lying low since major changes at the age of 29, and thus, started a new blog to plot the (mis)adventures of my thirties. I am a hardwired INTJ, according to the Myer-Briggs, so I need a public space to track the handful of “life projects” that are always happening and to keep me personally accountable.
What Else Do You Write About?
It has changed year to year. Sometimes weightlifting, sometimes about my yoga teacher training, sometimes about anything. My interests vary as I get bored easily. For fun, I also write reviews for Yelp. Lately, I’ve been interested in feminism and podcasting. As of the beginning of 2018, I’ve been particularly interested in dating and relationships.
