Who am I?

I realize it’s impossible to really know who a person is through what they write on a personal blog. However, I seem to have some new readers recently and I just thought I should introduce myself.

Here are some questions people usually ask me when we first meet in person.

Why are you in Chile?

Simple. I like it. I even like Santiago. There are many reasons why. If you’re really interested, leave a comment and I’ll respond individually. (Also I’m not knocked-up and my ankles are normal sized, last time I checked, in case anyone was wondering).

Do you have a pololo?

Not exactly. I’m dating someone.

How do you survive down in Santiago?

I work. I’m an English teacher. I teach for an Institute because it was easier to get a visa that way. I also do private classes and occasional translating on the side. I make enough money to live a comfortable life in Providencia. No, my daddy doesn’t send me money. But my mom recently sent me a brownie mix. Thanks, Mom!

Do you speak Spanish?

Sí. I also understand Chilean.

How long do you plan on staying in Chile?

I’m not sure. At least until May 2010. I’m not sure I’d go as far to say that I would live here forever, but I could see myself here for a long time, depending on many factors.

Are you happy living in Chile?

Yes, I love my life here. Of course I miss my family and friends in the U.S., but that’s a dilemma that every ex-pat deals with.

Where are you from?

Vermont. (A small state near New York and Canada).

What did you study in the US?

Latin American Studies and International Relations. I wrote my thesis on La Revolución Pinguina and the Chilean Education system. I went to Colby College in Waterville, ME.

Are you going to work in that area in the future?

Maybe, but my current interests lie more in the Education field.
