My name is Todd.
I have finally gotten to the point where my day seems incomplete without a trip to the gym. Not that I’m ready to take up residency there, but that it’s become a valued part of my daily routine, and I feel like I’ve missed out on something if I have reason to skip a day. I live in Kansas, but am working on getting a job overseas in Korea teaching English as a second language. I have all the paperwork done for my employment visa, and have it sitting in a drawer waiting to send to the Korean Consulate in Chicago once I get a job offer. I’m working with a recruiter and following any job leads I can get from a close friend of mine in Seoul.
We’ve had more rain come through my town, and last night tornadoes touched down in other parts of Kansas. One stayed on the ground for 90 minutes. Thankfully it was in sparsely populated area.
I have two college degrees, one in communications, and another in Educational Studies. I just finished the Educational Studies degree last October. I plan on using what I’ve learned to get this degree to be a more effective ESL teacher.
Some of my favorite activities include bike riding, camping and enjoying time in the outdoors, wood carving, singing, and cooking. I’m not much of a fan of baking, but that doesn’t meann) I don’t enjoy baked goods. I also like to go for walks most anywhere. It could be a nature path, along the beach, or down a city street (in nice parts of town).
My passport is one of my most valued possessions. That and my collection of books (scriptures included). Unfortunately I won’t be able to take my library with me if I’m fortunate enough to find work in Korea. It would probably cost me as much to get them on the plane as it would all my other luggage. Thankfully I’ve also got a good collection of e-books and a subscription to Amazon Kindle.
I hope you find success on this site. Maybe that will happen as we get to know each other. If not, then maybe with someone else we meet up with here.
