I am in my second year of teaching in Kuwait and I plan on doing one more year. Teaching can be the most wonderful and challenging experiences, but it can also be the complete opposite. My experience in teaching is somewhere in between. Don’t get me wrong there are a lot of great things about teaching in Kuwait. Here is a sample of a typical work day and some pros and cons.
Now my favorite leisure activity is Brunch. Brunch is basically just a late breakfast. I can’t think of anything particularly special about brunch, I just love it. Now imagine all the food stations you could possibly think of plus unlimited drinks. This was brunch in Bahrain. There was a burger station, a soup station, a salad station, an international food station, a sushi station, and a dessert station, and there even was ice cream. There was so much food. When I first got there with my friends it was only us and another group of people there. I was worried that all that food would go to waste. After about 30 minutes people started piling in. People from all walks of life. That is one thing that makes Bahrain different from Kuwait – diversity. The brunch was half the day and after it was over there was a little after party.
“Disney World for Adults”
Since 2016 I have been hearing about this amazing place called Dubai. Songs were made about it. Influencers have beautiful photos taken here. I even heard that Dubai is the Disney World for adults. I finally took a trip to Dubai and made my own discoveries. I went with two friends and we met up with another friend that lives there. Dubai is definitely a must see place if you have the money.
The other day I read a post called 3 things I like about my personality and the post was real and honest. I really felt where the author was coming from (you can read it here). This lead me to think about ways I can be more honest and more personal in my writing. I am happy for the people who decided to follow me on this journey called life. As I evolve so will my blog.
I have been in Kuwait for about a year and a half and it took me this long to consider it home. It took me a while to get adjusted to life in Kuwait in general, but I’m now starting to realize that this is where I live. One of the biggest changes I made from last year was moving into the apartment I’m in now. My old apartment didn’t feel like home because I didn’t take the time to make it a home. I made very little changes to my old apartment. I figured it was only temporary so there was not a point in personalizing it.
