I absolutely love being on the water and feel as though I can never get enough of it! But, honestly, I soo long to be in control of my own world. Perhaps I’m a control freak, (like I accuse my Dad of being)! I found that I was playing control games in the way I was communicating with Skip. His scope of reality was different than my scope (naturally, I think everyone see’s reality from a different color of the spectrum). There was a kind of a drudgery and look forward to whats going to happen, perspective, that I found to be hard. I needed a refreshing perspective AND I’m feeling like I’d really like to be in a more empowered position…..like, start up a business and earn enough money to buy a boat or go for my captains license so I can be a delivery captain…..or learn to teach English so I can stop and teach and get to know a community and feel more integrated and offer what I’ve got to share with the world. I’m having a wonderful time hanging out and getting to know other cruisers but a piece of me feels like I’m missing out on the rich Mexican culture going on all around me (well, you can’t miss out on it, its so engaging and colorful) but I think I could be spending more time trying to understand or at least working on my conversational Spanish! (after all, that is a huge reason for heading South! )
So… There was this TEFL school in Chiapas de Corzo, that I have had my eye on for awhile. I’ve been wanting a TEFL certificate and the thought of getting one Mexico seems to make a lot of sense! So, after much deliberation (why are decisions so difficult for me!?) I hoped on a bus, headed to a small Town in middle of Chiapas!! is this really happening!!??
