Day 262: The Work from Home Life

The reality of the work from home life (of a freelancer/blogger) is more like you work your bum off or you don't make any money. I probably work twice as much in my self-employed life than I ever did in a real job, and there have been many challenges to overcome in order to make it a viable income source.

Getting Caught Up: Part 3

Now for the final part in the series of “Getting Caught Up” by Brooke vs. the World. The Entrance: There’s a fishing town up north actually called The Entrance that a bunch of my friends here go to.

Getting Caught Up: Part 2

Now continues the second part of the series “Getting Caught Up” by Brooke vs. the World. Housewarming: In the meantime, the house that we shared a backyard with was broken into.

Getting Caught Up: Part 1

I apologize for the delay in new posts. I’ve had every intention of posting updates, but whenever I thought about it, I was just too tired. Brooke has been super busy!

An Apple for the Teacher

Hollllllllly cowwwwwwww! I have a job! After a whirlwind two weeks (that seriously felt like 2 months) of training, Brooke has officially become a paid-member of the teaching staff at an English language school in Kiev. Ahhh! I’m definitely kind of excited. Yes, a paycheck would be nice. But… but… oooh I must admit, my mind is already asking, “Where… Read more

A trip not like I had planned.

Ok, so in case you didn’t know, I am about to move to the Ukraine… for a year! If you asked me a year ago where I’d see myself in 2008, I don’t think I would have for a split second considered Kiev. But, a year later, a slowly dwindling bank account, and a better understanding of former Soviet culture… Read more

What the hell are you doing?!

I don’t know! I just really don’t know what I’m doing back here in Kaz-Stan, or Central Asia for that matter. When I booked a month for home it was just so cost-effective to get a round-trip ticket that I couldn’t pass it up. Plus that meant I could store some things with friends in Almaty (my super cute red… Read more
