My opening lines

So, I've made a few attempts at blogging but I am never consistent or frequent with my posting. But still I want to try again. I have the memory of a goldfish and so this is a diary of sorts! It's in my own interest to use it as much as possible!

At the moment I am teaching English in Northern Spain. Before this, I lived in South Korea. I am trying to avoid being an adult for a while longer and this type of job is great for that- travelling and meeting lots of new people and drinking too much and spending cash frivolously! The whole meeting new people thing is great, although you obviously meet some real crazies and weirdos! Actually, I seem to have a knack for attracting crazies.

Over the course of my dating history, events have been colourful, decision-making questionable and some of the guys pretty damn sketchy. I have no idea what my type is now. My most recent boyfriend, Crazy, was a compulsive liar/hypochondriac/ bad actor. Needless to say, it fizzled out quickly.

After this most recent shit-show (he had a kind of nervous breakdown and quit work and left the country- not my fault, I swear! In fact I‘m not sure how much of that was just bad acting, drama-king shenanigans!), I have decided I need to have a little bit of an overhaul when it comes to my requirements for even considering a dude! I am not holding out for the one or any such bullshit but I will make sure that hook-ups don’t turn into boyfriends without careful consideration!

Crazy boyfriend was the fourth compulsive liar that befriended me! I am cynical as fuck but somehow still naive enough to be taken in by the shit for a while! It sucks!! And the kinda of job I have right now attracts a lot of freaks who are running from their lives and looking to create a new one. However, along with the crazies there are some amazing people, like the friends I made in Korea. Sometimes the nature of the job can make work very tiring and stressful but it’s great experience and fun! Not sure what I’ll do when it’s time for my next move. This is certainly not my career! But in the meantime, I intend to enjoy it all!

As far as the blog goes, I'm not sure how honest I want to be. I like to be honest but am not sure if the Internet is the best medium! However, I'm confident that this blog will not be without a whole lot of bitching!!!
