17 months and counting…

As usual this post is late.

You know one thing I am learning about having a long time period before you go abroad long term is the planning is so much fun, especially when you want to go every where.

Anyway this month is not very different from last month.   I really am trying to focus on VIPKID by taking work shops & learning about teaching a younger audience.  I am also trying to work as much as I possibly can in June, July and August.

I also went ahead and created a LinkedIn because I read it is a great way to find teaching jobs abroad.   My profile is very basic right now, I need to take a pretty picture and all that for my profile.

As I said last month the month was about getting on a schedule and getting caught up.   I am 100% caught up and thankfully I can start saving again.    Now that I have joined the ranks of digital nomad I am not as crazy about the number I want to save so let’s just say now my goal is to save as much as I can while I am here.   I don’t really have a number anymore.  (So that is something that has changed from my first post) I am just going to save as much as I can & when my date gets closer re-evaluate.

I still have not finished my TEFL and I have decided that I am going to have a couple overnight this month and finish it.   I really must have that certificate or no one is going to hire me abroad.   I also want that on my profile with both VIPKID and Linkedin.

Rumor is July & August are crazy busy with VIPKID and I am mentally trying to prep to work every day with a full schedule to get as much money as possible.    If I can pay off my car over the course of two months I am going to do it.   (it is not that far fetched which is CRAZY to me!)  I am just not sure if I can keep up that pace we will see and I am going to try.  I will have a two week break at the end of the Summer so hopefully that means I can mentally suck it up and do it.  No rest for the wicked am I right?

I am still casually selling on Poshmark but haven’t quite been as active I am hoping to get back to doing that.    I am now just going to leave everything in the account and cash out every few months and add to my savings.   I am hoping to get back to selling on there soon.

Next month I am going to start my savings roundup posts back up so that way you can see how I am doing it and maybe be encouraged to take a travel leap someday.

All in all not a very eventful month just trying to build my base at VIPKID and organize my life which I finally accomplished (Also something I learned… when you work all night and sleep all day you really never spend money ha!)

Shows I am currently binging?   The New Girl, The Expanse, Death in Paradise and Arrow.   I rotate based on my mood.

Favorite movie last month.

The Avengers. Duh.

Favorite Book-  everything I read was pretty dull to me.    Nothing is standing out to me.  I am reading a book right now that is TRULY a rock star book that I will be sharing soon.

Still looking for books set in St. Kitts, St. Lucia and St. Thomas… send them my way if you know of any!

Until next time,

Ciao babes!
