I'm looking forward to teaching and getting lost somewhere. Somewhere will probably be Korea. Sorry, Kazakhstan.
My Nebraskan life is broken up by little reveries - in the car, in my bedroom, in the queue at Target - where my ego pools up and festers like old bathwater. The TEFL life affords no reveries. There is no time for an ego. Every moment finds you teaching, learning, or standing in a convenience store fumbling through foreign currency as a building crowd of murmuring natives shakes fists behind your back. It's a straight line existence and that's what I need right now. I've been reading too many books, enough to know that books alone won't teach you much of anything.
