What’s next?

March 13, 2007

Just one month ago I was absolutely certain that I’d be eagerly returning home in the fall.  Although I was happy I’d come to Taiwan, I couldn’t imagine any possibility that I’d change my mind about only staying a year.

 Everything can change so quickly.  Over Chinese New Year I had a lot of time to myself to contemplate how I really feel and what I want, and the conclusion I came to is that I will be staying in Taiwan a while longer.   I could be my usual overly analytical self and drive myself crazy weighing the pros and cons of signing on for another year, trying to fit Taiwan into my master plan for my life, but for once I’m just going to let go.  I’m happy right now, I don’t feel like going home so soon, so I won’t.

I’m signing another year long contract.  At this point, I have every intention of quitting before that full year is up.  On the other hand, I’ve sort of given up on predicting myself.

I wasn’t going to say anything about this until I’d made the official decision in April, but at this point I’ve told just about everyone I’ve talked to so I suppose there’s no reason not to post it now.

 In conclusion, some pictures from a scooter trip to Keelung last month:
