It's become obvious to me how much the kids in class sense my interaction with others. They're aware of my rapport and level of engagement, which results in they themselves wanting more attention.

Historically, at least in the West, there's this notion the male would financially provide and the female would be the homemaker/family caretaker. These socialized gender roles are slowly and thankfully fading away but still linger. One area such historic roles still weigh heavily is paying for food.
It can often be confusing as to when you should pay for the entire bill in a variety of settings, not just romantic. In the audio post below, I share some tips to help you out!
Attached is a short audio file capturing my second audio blog post. I keep it brief and highlight the start of my global network, why you should travel to meet friends and how I hope to inspire you to meet me abroad!
Obviously, you've heard at least something from the keynote by now. I was pretty impressed with the announcements, and decided to make my first completely audio post to discuss it! Below are two recordings, one is a short summary of my thoughts on the keynote, the second is my full analysis of the event.
Within the past couple weeks, I've been assigned a new class called VIP Get Smart 4, the most advanced English class offered by my school. The VIP portion means the class is longer and occurs twice a week vs. once a week of typical classes.
Two weeks ago, as my student and I read through the portion of the book for that class, I noticed the book mention students should create a questionnaire about who does which chores at home, and have classmates fill it out. Obviously, in my case, it was a single student. As a result, I created the same questionnaire on my ipad and had my student ask the few questions to each person at work at the time (20). Afterwards we reviewed the results and discussed them.
On March 15, 2016 I launched Solo Trip Abroad with the intention of having a record of my travels, adventures and thoughts along the way. This would serve as a way to offer what I learn, provide resources and insight to anyone who is interested in taking action and moving abroad or considering a travel-as-a-lifestyle change.
