A Litte More History.....

So here is a little more history about me. I started college at 16 in order to graduate a year early from high school (1996). I then joined the Army National Guard at 17. Promising start as it was, my life has kind of fizzled out to the mundane, but now the excitement is back! Don't get me wrong, for the most part, I have had a pretty wonderful life. I have a great family, and really awesome friends, but I want the "zaza zoom" type of life. Anyway, I am 26, been to Europe a couple of times with the military, have worked numerous jobs, finished a Master of Arts in English, wrote a thesis, started my own business and pretty much have had an okay, so-so life.

Here's the exciting part. Just recently, on my 26th birthday, I received an offer to teach English at a French University for a year. This University is only a 45 minute train ride from Paris. I am basically going to be in PARIS!!! I am so incredibly excited about this opportunity that it is hard for me not to go around shouting at the top of my lungs how lucky I am. I don't because I know that would be rude and just plain annoying. That is the main reason I started this blog, so I can gush about this opportunity in writing. Also, I wanted a more creative way to keep in touch with my loved ones while I am in Europe. Until I leave at the end of August, I will be posting very boring stuff, but once I get to France I promise I will not disappoint.
